The thugs used to threaten people with lawsuits. They will engage the best lawyers to sue anyone who crossed their paths. This reminded me of a lawyer who spoke at a dinner telling the guests he was a gangster and threatened that anyone who crossed his path would be finished. I thought it was a dinner of a registered society but I kept feeling that I was in a triad meeting or a dinner for gangsters. Anyway, it just showed how powerful the legal fraternity can be in the wrong hands or in the hands of gangsters.
Getting sued by the gangsters with the best lawyers is quite common even when one was right as the NKF case had proven. Those who have the financial muscles would use it to buy lawyers and used the courts as their executioner if the poor buggers could not buy a better lawyer to defend himself.
Now the new thing is to use a psychiatrist to put people in mental hospitals. This one is a bit trickier as the victim must be dumb or be tricked into seeing a psychiatrist in the first place. And once there, anything can happen if the psychiatrist is one without ethics or principles and would violate his code of practice for the money. Of course most of the psychiatrists are professional and respectable people and are safe to deal with. All it needs is a couple of rogues and an unwary patient could turn victim to the gangsters.
So be very frighten when your friends, good or very good friends, advise you to see a psychiatrist. This is a new tool that can be abused in the wrong hands. The gangsters have found another way to get at their enemies.
