"Guru Tony Strikes Oil", Sunday World

'Messiah' Appointed To Company Board By Gullible Disciples

Cult leader 'muscles' in on followers' fortune, by Nicola Tallant

MUCKY Messiah Tony Quinn has struck oil and is on the verge of becoming a billionaire after muscling his way to the top of a company pumping thousands of barrels of black gold a week.

Quinn is hoping he can join the ranks of the Texan barons after a team of his devoted followers appointed him as a director of their company. But the controversial mind guru is now at the centre of a massive boardroom bust-up over his bizarre appointment and the influence he appears to have over his fellow directors.

Quinn, who some followers believe is Jesus Christ, is facing allegations that Cult leader ‘muscles’ in on followers’ fortune he has muscled in on the company which was set up seven years ago by two avid followers of his Educo cult, and that he is now creaming the profits for himself.

Furious shareholders are also looking for answers about a golden handshake of $20 million in free shares he was gifted when he was voted onto the board and whether or not he is now using profits to send company associates on his own €60,000 a pop seminars.


The fight over the oil company International Natural Energy (INE) has been brewing since 2007 when Quinn was appointed as a director – two years after it struck oil in the impoverished Central American country of Belize.

Incredibly, immediately after his appointment he announced on a Dublin stage that only ‘Educoists’, or his followers, could now become shareholders.

To date, its 350 Irish shareholders have not received a penny in dividends, despite the fact that INE has been pumping up to 5,500 barrels of high-grade oil every week, at a current market value of around €50 a barrel.

Sources say that despite requests, no company accounts have been furnished to shareholders who are concerned how the company is spending money. The shareholders will attend an AGM in Dublin next week where Quinn has promised they will be “pretty happy” with the good news he has to share with them.

But the Sunday World can reveal that an unofficial shareholders’ meeting will take place today in advance of the AGM, where concerned investors will meet to air their worries about Quinn’s involvement in the company and how their money is being spent.

“There are concerns among the investors about Mr Quinn’s involvement. It is our feeling that having a cult leader as the face of the company is damaging to its value,” said an inside source.

“The shares were once worth $400 but as far as we are concerned, they are worth nothing at the moment because nobody would buy them.

“We want to try to resurrect their trading value and to do so we need answers. We have a six-page list of questions we want answered and most of them concern Tony Quinn.

“The company has been telling us nothing since 2007. We have no disclosure about how much is being spent on explorations, we have no idea about its reserves or how much has been borrowed.

“There have been a number of changes in directors since then and we have been told nothing whatsoever. What we are left with is Quinn there – with other people he appears to have a lot of influence over – and of course, a deafening silence.”

Among the six pages of questions that the group wants answered is whether or not the company has paid for staff and associates to attend Quinn’s pricey mind-bending seminars in the sun, which cost between €18,500 and €62,500.


It is believed that at least one associate of the company attended Quinn’s Monaco seminar last July, where he refused to answer questions from the Sunday World about former followers who say they went broke following him but got nothing in return.

They also want to know the truth about 67,000 shares worth over $20 million which they say were given to Quinn on his appointment as Director.

“We want to know where these shares were supposed to have come from and why they were given to Quinn as a ‘gift’,” the source said.

“We want to understand what it is that Quinn is supposed to have done to earn his position as a director of the company?

“It is our opinion that the directors were all influenced by him when he was appointed in 2007.

Since then there have been a lot of changes in directors and it appears that Quinn has muscled in to take the company over.”

Mary Power and Susan Morrice

INE was set up in 2002 by Northern Irish businesswomen Susan Morrice and Sheila McCaffrey, Belizean surveyor Mike Usher, who has since passed away, and businessmen Paul Marriot and Jean Cornec.

They raised funds in Ireland by selling shares, largely among followers of Quinn’s Educo group, although the guru himself is believed to have advised investors against putting money into it.

Paul Marriot

His business manager, Collette Millea, told followers that Tony was not endorsing the sale of the shares. However, when in 2005 the then 82 shareholders were informed that the company had struck high-grade oil on its first ever drill, Quinn decided to take a second look at the company.

At the time, Sheila McCaffrey credited Quinn’s mind technology for the oil find but since then the battle for control of the company has turned nasty. McCaffrey is no longer a working director and Cornec is currently suing INE for more than 10 million dollars he says he is owed after agreeing to sell his cut to Morrice.

Jean Cornec

INE are countersuing Cornec, saying that a campaign of negative remarks directed against Quinn and Morrice has damaged the value of the company and its attempts to raise finance by selling shares.

In the months before his appointment as Director of the company Quinn was flown to Belize where he hosted a seminar for the tiny nation’s then Prime Minister Said Musa, who has since been voted out.

The seminar, which was held on the private Caye Chapel island, is suspected to have cost INE more than $100,000. Quinn was brought onto the island on a private jet with his usual entourage, including secretary Mary Power, and had his entire gym shipped over from Ireland.

While in Belize, he and business partner Mary Power were brought to visit the first oil well, Mike Usher I.

The pair kissed it, and Quinn said the grass there was greener than anywhere else in the world.

In September of 2007, he was brought onto the company board and court documents seen by the Sunday World detail how INE now recognise him as a ‘founder’.

Since then McCaffrey and Marriot have been forcibly removed as directors and Cornec has stepped down.

Alex Cranberg

Morrice’s husband Alex Cranberg, a Texan oil baron, is now also involved in the new set-up. In court documents, his company CHX is listed as a sister company to INE. Shareholders say they have not had an AGM since 2007, when Quinn announced the shares were worth $400 each, and were only furnished with next week’s Dublin meeting after demanding it.

This week Quinn, who is due to fly into Ireland in the coming days, wrote to followers of his Educo cult to inform them that he is launching his own newspaper Blueprint for Successful Living and will be circulating a million copies across the world.

He told them that the reason for the paper is to ‘offer the answer to defeat the recession’ and because he sells newspapers.

“They are not putting me on the front of newspapers every few weeks because it depresses sales.

Quinn then informed followers involved ‘in the oil’ that they will be able to attend his seminar on September 13 at the RDS and then the INE AGM the following Tuesday.

“I believe you oil people are going to be pretty happy at the end of the AGM,” he quipped
