Illin' Lama Getting Served
File under: Gurus Doin' Time and The Siddhi of PR
When we last had a visit from the "Lama," Michael Lyons, aka Mohan Singh, he was just put under a warrant for his arrest on sexual assault charges in the U.K. Two years and some change later, he's getting it like he gave it from the press and the prosecutor:
Michael Lyons, 51, styled himself as spiritualist Mohan Singh and victims were convinced he was linked to the Dalai Lama, it is alleged.For any readers who've been closer to Mohan than they wanted to be, a reporter from London's Daily Mail is asking for help:
But in fact he is a 'sexual predator' who raped and assaulted new or potentially new followers that he found attractive, a jury was told.
Prosecutor Philip Katz QC said: "We say the defendant, calling himself Mohan Singh, is a sexual predator masquerading as a Guru and healer.
"We say he has been systematically raping and sexually assaulting those new recruits into his group who he found attractive."
By way of introduction, I'm a journalist with the Daily Mail newspaper in London.We can imagine that woman has better things to do than get involved with her psychopathic ex-husband again, but all the best to anyone who wants to tell their story to Colin and the Daily Mail.
I have read with interest the many posts on your website.
Could you pass on my details to any of Mohan's victims who have contacted you.
I would like to speak to them for a newspaper investigation into him. I have been covering the court case which is currently running at Wood Green Crown Court in London.
Any other leads for investigating Lyons would be welcome. I would be particularly keen to try and track down his former wife.
