Chapter 260 He–Is Behind This
“Or is this a setup by you?”
“What is your purpose? Trying to drive me out of Empyrean Group?”
Warren did not reply.
Maverick, saying word for word, asked Warren, who was dumbfounded, stuttering for a long time without uttering a complete sentence.
Maverick, however, didn’t pay any attention to him but instead looked at Gianna, who was not far away, and said immediately afterward, “Ms. Lewis, what do you think?”
Gianna coldly glanced at Warren, then said nonchalantly. “Mr. Maverick Myers is the young proprietor of the Myers Group of Flenning and was also once the candidate of a marriage arranged by the family, and he was able to join Empyrean Group purely out of a passion. Nowadays, you all have seen the strength of Mr. Maverick Myers, and the Dawn City project was taken down by him. What happened today? Make sure to give Mr. Maverick Myers an explanation.”
Gianna’s eyes swept over and finally landed on the accountant. The mockery in her eyes was self–evident.
“Since you reported it by your real name, you have evidence?
“Show me the proof! If you can’t bring it out, then you can constitute the crime of false accusation, and that’s punishable by imprisonment.”
The accountant was stunned.
He had only done what Warren had told him to do. How could it have come to this? Didn’t they say that they had already prepared the evidence long ago, and all he needed to do was to come forward and report it?
What was going on?
The accountant flung himself on his knees and said to Warren, “Mr. Denley, save me. I don’t want to go to jail, I don’t want to go to jail…”
Warren’s face was ugly, and he hurriedly brushed off the relationship with him. “What’s all this stuff you’re doing got to do with me?”
“Mr. Denley, we are relatives! You can’t see me go to jail just like this!”
Warren instantly panicked. “Ms. Lewis, don’t listen to his nonsense. Although he and I are a little bit related, we are all far apart, and we don’t have any contact at all. When he said this, he was obviously accusing me falsely.”
“Mr. Denley, did you not tell me to do this? You said it would be fine as long as Lreported it with
you guys would take care of the rest. Now, what’s going on? Just pushing me out
as a scapegoat?”
Warren was furious. “Shut up!”
He pointed his finger at the accountant and snapped. “He’s talking nonsense. I didn’t order him to do anything at all, and this is all a naked false accusation on his part.”
Gianna didn’t listen to Warren’s sophistry but crouched down to look at the accountant and proceeded to say, “As an accountant, John Karanicolas, you have come to the company for a long time. You are aware of my attitude in doing things. I can give you a chance for today’s matter, but every word you say next must be the truth. Otherwise, no one can help you.”
John nodded repeatedly. “Ms. Lewis, don’t worry, I will be truthful, I will be truthful…”
Gianna asked with a cold face, staring at him closely, “Who instructed you to do this? What did they promise you?”
John answered in a hurry, “It was Mr. Denley. No, it was his assistant Rady Ananda who found me, saying that Mr. Maverick Myers was in their way and asked me to help him clear the obstacles.
“He also said that after the matter was accomplished, he would give me a million dollars to get me far away. All of this was instructed by Rady.”
Warren saw him say that and grasped at straws to clear his suspicions. “It was Rady! He is behind this! And doing such things in my name, I won’t let him off.”
