AgEnt aS­Sault

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Nuts & Bolts -

Fer­gus Wil­son was found guilty of as­sault by beat­ing in April 2014 and fined more than £1,500 for hit­ting 31-year-old es­tate agent Daniel Wells.

Mr Wil­son, 67, ad­mit­ted storm­ing into PLS (Prop­erty Let­tings and Sales), Folke­stone, and shout­ing: “Right you lit­tle s***” but de­nied hit­ting Mr Wells in the tem­ple and knock­ing him off his chair.

In Au­gust last year, Mr Wil­son, who owns thou­sands of prop­er­ties in Ash­ford, Folke­stone and Maid­stone with his wife Ju­dith, ap­pealed at Can­ter­bury Crown Court, but the orig­i­nal con­vic­tion was up­held.

He said he was not happy with the po­lice re­port and will keep fight­ing.

He said: “They found a num­ber of things wrong but aren’t go­ing to do any­thing about it.

“I will fol­low it up with a pri­vate pros­e­cu­tion, but not ev­ery one would have the re­sources to do that.

“I will pur­sue this com­plaint to the ends of the earth, and that means Stras­bourg [the French town home to the Euro­pean Court of Hu­man Rights.]”
