Subject: Urgent Oversight Required: Money Laundering by McDonald’s Europe and Allen & Overy in London
Date sent: April 19, 2024, 17:15 +0800 (China Standard Time)
To: The Lord Watson of Wyre Forest

Dear Lord Watson of Wyre Forest,

I am writing to you with a matter of urgent concern that requires your immediate attention and oversight, particularly given your outspoken stance on public health, ethical business practices, and your previous critical perspectives on the McDonald’s Monopoly promotion, which you described as a “grotesque marketing strategy” and a “danger to public health.”

This issue pertains to serious criminal activities within the McDonald’s corporate structure, involving McDonald’s Europe and the law firm Allen & Overy based in London, which are accused of aiding and abetting money laundering activities. McDonald’s Corporation, as the apex entity, benefits directly from these actions, highlighting a complex network of illicit activities.

These allegations are not only profound due to the nature of the crimes but also due to the potential global impact and the possibility of interference in legal proceedings given the substantial influence of the involved entities. I have already initiated steps to bring these issues to the attention of the FBI and plan to contact the UK’s Serious Fraud Office (SFO) soon, as the complexities of these cases exceed the remit of Action Fraud which I had once contacted but failed to seriously investigate.

Given the gravity of these issues and my past experiences, where I faced multiple threats for pursuing transparency and accountability, your involvement would be crucial. The potential for obstruction is significant, and your advocacy for justice and ethical conduct could ensure that these allegations are thoroughly investigated without undue influence.

I am proceeding with this communication through the standard parliamentary channels but am earnestly requesting that my communications be closely monitored and given due consideration due to the sensitivity and potential risks involved.

Therefore, I am requesting that any emails sent from my address, vincent@ecthrwatch.org, to contactholmember@parliament.uk be directly forwarded to your personal attention, even though contactholmember@parliament.uk may only be in copy of the email. I believe establishing a direct line of communication with you and your office, or a designated staff member, will facilitate a more effective exchange regarding these sensitive issues. Furthermore, it would be best for me to have a direct email address.

Attached to this email, you will find my correspondence with Empower Oversight, detailing underlying concerns. Given the complexities and the need for a secure discussion, your insight and involvement would be highly valuable.

At present, I am preparing responses to inquiries from Empower Oversight concerning these matters, in which you will be put in copy. The nature of the information and the ongoing discussions underscore the importance of careful and secure communications. Until I hear from you or your office, the communications will be CCed to contactholmember@parliament.uk.

Your continued attention to these matters could be significantly impactful. I appreciate your consideration of this sensitive request and look forward to the opportunity to discuss this further with you or a designated member of your staff.

Yours sincerely,

Vincent B. Le Corre

Vincent B. Le Corre

I am the key witness and whistleblower in the major criminal RICO case targeting McDonald’s Corporation and their accomplices for fraud, money laundering, and corruption of foreign officials and magistrates. Initially granted anonymity by the European Court of Human Rights (Rules 33 and 47 of the Rules of Court), I made the decision in August 2023 to temporarily go public with my identity. This decision, driven by concerns for my own safety and that of my loved ones, was taken despite the potential risks, hoping it will be temporary only and that I can return to anonymity soon.
