This e-mail purports to be from Boris Blanche, Chief Operating Officer of IRU.

This e-mail was not written, nor sent, by Boris Blanche.

It appears to come from an anonymous source, seemingly with the objective of defaming Umberto de Pretto and IRU.

IRU has already initiated necessary steps to investigate the source of this anonymous e-mail, and any potential damages for fraud or defamation.
