Manual Action Revoked or Not?

We helped out customer with a manual action they had for over 9 months and did not even know about it because their previous SEO company never told them that it have been there in the first case.

Then we took over to fix the problem and we removed thousands and thousands of links physically and filed a re-consideration request which seemed like it solved the problem.

On July 8th 2015 they got in the GWT a message indicating that the "Manual Action" have been revoked. See screenshot here: http://i.imgur.com/AxvHxI5.png

Since then and until today the "Manual Action" have no been removed in the GWT. See screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/xh3q2Og.png

Also since then we did not see any changes in the performance of the web site in the search results, i.e rankings. We would have expected to see an improvement or a drop because of all the links being removed. Or?

I heard that others had the experience too, but still wondering if the message that the manual action has been revoked, if it has been processed or not.

Then we advised our customer  to contact Google Quality Team (and which they did on July 11, 2015) using the review button in the GWT adding this message:

Dear Google Search Quality Team,

We would like to bring to your attention that we had a partial manual action which have been completely revoked on Jul 8, 2015, yet we are still seeing the manual action in the Google Webmaster Tools. See screenshot: (screenhot)
 
Do we still need to remove more links? If so, as we previously mentioned in our most recent reconsideration request on June 17, 2015, we are still working on cleaning up any links on the web, not just uploading links that can only harm our performance within the search results using the disavow tool, but we make a lot of efforts to remove those physically, to avoid any harm in our performance within the search results but also to protect the overall reputation of our company.

Is this case probably a mistake?

For your convenience, we would like to share with you some screenshots related to this issue:

Email from the Google Search Quality Team: (screenshot)

Message from the Google Search Quality Team in the Google Webmaster Tools: (screenshot)

We would appreciate if you can look into this issue at your earliest convenience and let us know if there is something we can do to
get this problem solved.

Thank you so much in advance for taking the time viewing our request and looking forward to hear from you.

Kind regards,

xxx
