Candy hits out at “unpleasant and misleading statement” in Holyoake lawsuit

Property developer Christian Candy today denied claims that he threatened and intimidated business associate Mark Holyoake over a loan.

Holyoake is suing Christian and his brother Mark Candy for more than £100m, claiming they “coerced” him out of millions of pounds after Christian's company CPC lent him £12m to buy Belgravia mansion Grosvenor Gardens House, SW1, in late 2011.

The Candy brothers strongly refute the allegations and say that Holyoake was an unreliable creditor who lied to them from the start and his allegations of coercion are fabricated.
