Misys seeks damages for &#39forged documents&#39

Misys is seeking damages for what it claims were two forged documents which it alleges were sent by former DBS member Evan Owen, according to official High Court papers obtained by Money Marketing.

Last week, Money Marketing reported that Misys had taken out an injunction against Owen.

In the court papers, Misys claims a fake press release was emailed to financial journalists, including Money Marketing, while a forged email claiming to be from the chief executive of DBS was sent to Misys chairman Kevin Lomax, both on July 25.

Last month, Misys agreed to drop allegations against Milton Jones and pay him £500 for losses incurred. Jones is believed to be a former client of Owen.

The network was granted an extension of the order in relation to the claim for damages and an injunction against Owen.

The injunction restrains Owen from distributing anything purporting to be from Misys or DBS and anything that might have a negative effect on the network.

Both Milton Jones and Misys declined to comment.
