SMN News further learned that Brison did make an effort to begin repayment through the agreement he signed but did not continue, thus WINAIR chose to put a lien on all his assets in order to recover the monies they claim he owes the company.

While WINAIR claimed that Brison embezzled monies from the company they chose to have the employee sign an agreement to repay them instead of following the legal channels and filing a complaint with the police department.
SMN News contacted Brison on Wednesday for a statement on the lien placed on his assets by WINAIR, Brison said that he was never taken to court by WINAIR to place a lien on his salary. He said that he even checked with is bank on Wednesday and accessed his account without any problems.
