Demon founder bailed on blackmail charges
Stanford in court
Cliff Stanford, founder of Demon Internet and Redbus, was in court yesterday charged with blackmail and "email poaching".
Stanford was granted bail and must reappear on 14 May. The charges relate to accusations that he intercepted emails from Redbus chairman John Porter. The two fell out over strategy at Redbus and Stanford led efforts to remove him as chairman.
Stanford was charged with co-defendant George Liddell. ®
