In light of Ratna’s removal, we think it is ethical to issue a fresh warning to anyone who has a TBI email account. In late 2011 TBI set up its own email system powered by Google. I think only managers have TBI email accounts not teachers. For example Luke Preece’s email is firstname.lastname@example.org. There are other school-based ones too. For example one email is email@example.com. If you use one of these email accounts, you should be aware that you are being spied on by Lilies Agustine.
Lilies Agustine slept over at our house one night in 2011. In the course of drinking a full bottle of red wine to herself, she told us that, “She was closer and more intimate with Luke than Ika (Luke’s wife.)” She also boasted that Lilies and Luke were so close that Ika had banned Lilies from their home. She said that their marriage was a sham and that Luke’s only true solace and understanding came from Lilies herself. Luke had appointed Lilies as Marketing Manager at TBI Dago and after he became Business Development Manager he had arranged her promotion to head of Marketing for the whole group. This incredible promotion is typical of Luke. He promotes loyal stooges to big jobs like head of TBI Riau (the biggest school) or Head of Marketing, so he can expand his personal fiefdoms by stealth.
After Lilies was in charge of marketing, he arranged it so admin of the TBI email system was under her control. That meant that Luke’s special lady friend was able to spy on every single email written within TBI and report back to Luke. In short, he had gained eyes over every piece of electronic communication within the company. This is clearly a narcissistic sociopath’s dream as it gives Preece a vast amount of data which he can use to undermine people and play his sick little power games.
The day that Luke told Cameron not to come into work because there had been threats he would be deported if he didn’t resign (there never had been of course). Cameron’s TBI email account was shut down mysteriously the day he made a complaint against Luke for lying to Mariam. Cameron did not actually leave TBI Kuningan until 6 weeks later but Lilies had his email switched off for complaining about Luke’s lack of ethics! But 6 weeks before he and Mariam finally agreed that Cameron would leave TBI, Lilies Agustine disabled Cam’s email account.
When we went into one of the complaint meetings with Mariam about Luke’s deliberate sabotage of Cameron’s career, all of his emails which he had written were left in a folder on Mariam’s desk. In short, not only did the TBI Director refuse to investigate why Luke Preece had lied to Cameron that he was in danger of being deported (or even discuss it), she had a pile of emails sent to her by Lilies Agustine as part of their covert surveillance of their own managers. [Fortunately, Cameron had set up a proxy email where copies of all his work emails were sent. (He strongly suspected Preece was a sociopath by the end and was taking preventative measures to try and protect himself.) If he had not done this, Preece and Agustine would have wiped all copies of the emails where Luke Preece was calling TBI teachers like Matt and Colm ‘idiots’ and ‘crazy’ and we would have had no proof that Preece was a vicious nutter].
In previous meetings TBI management had sworn that they would not spy or snoop on managers using the new email addresses. They said that the capacity to look was there but they would not use it. However, once Cameron made a complaint about Luke Preece for lying to him about a deportation threat, Mariam spied on Cameron not Luke! We found just like many previous managers that TBI is so under Luke Preece’s thumb that to even complain about him to Mariam meant the end of your career.
So be careful. Luke’s (former??) bit on the side is watching you, spying on you and reporting back to Luke Preece.
