SEO: Automatically redirect traffic to new domain or let users click?

Hi,
We are trying to leave a bad domain behind with a manual penalty following a negative SEO attack.  We cant disavow all the links, 6 months later 500 new links are being discovered a day and no one website seems to list all the links.  We tried disavowing ALL links and Google still found some and keeps the penalty on.

We have set up a 404 page that returns the 404 status.  Blocked crawling using a robots.txt and used javascript in the 404 page to show the new domain link with a "Nofollow" in the header.

What we wanted to know was is there any dangers in that penalties and crawlers follow if we redirect all traffic using a very short time interval eg 5ms.  Does automatically redirecting have any effect on robots.

here is the script

<header>
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">
</header>

<body>
<div id="main">
Our web site has moved.
  <div id="new">
  </div>
</div>
<script>
$deb="<";$fin=">";$col=":";$slash="/";$dot=".";
$adr= $slash + "DOMAIN";
$adr= "tp" + $col + $slash + $adr;
$adr += $dot + "co";
$adr="ht" + $adr + ".uk";

$new1="ef='";
$new1=" it at " + $deb + "a hr" + $new1;
$new1="You can now find" + $new1 + $adr;
$new1 += "'" + $fin + $adr + $deb + $slash;
$new1 += "a" + $fin;

document.getElementById("new").innerHTML = $new1;

</script>

<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
function delayer(){
    window.location = "http://www.DOMAIN .co.uk"
      
}
//-->
</script>
</head>
<body onLoad="setTimeout('delayer()', 0005)">
<h2>Prepare to be redirected!</h2>
<p>This page is a time delay redirect, please update your bookmarks to our new
location!</p>
</body>


Any advice gratefully received, thank you

Crawlers won't follow that link as it is initiated by js and they don't execute js.
