There was an exclusive report in EWN bulletins this morning, detailing phone conversations between the former stockbroker Sydney Frankel and the people who have accused him of abusing them when they were children.
There is a response by Lawyer Billy Gundelfinger responding to allegations of sexual assault against his billionaire client Frankel on the EWN website. Gundelfinger has refused to comment further avoiding a trial by media, as he believes the opposing lawyer and applicants are doing.
EWN’s Mandy Wiener, who broke that story, was at a briefing with some of the alleged victims this afternoon spoke to Stephen Grootes.
In the phone conversations, recorded in August 2013, applicant Nicole Levenstein can be heard confronting Frankel and his wife Callie, saying he would like to meet with her. Frankel was heard saying he would only meet her with his lawyer, while his wife refused to discuss Levenstein’s claims.
The applicants are presenting the recordings to support their argument that they tried to resolve the issue amicably before turning to the courts.
