REJOINDER: POLICE GRANT BAIL TO MANAGER OF SUCRYZA, AFTER BEING BUSTED FOR STEALING PRODUCTS FROM WAREHOUSE
We act as lawyers for Nabin Pandey have his instructions to write to you.
Our Client's attention has been drawn to a story on your website by one Raphael Aidoo titled “Police Grants Bail to Manager of Sucryza, after being busted for stealing products from the warehouse.”
We wish to state categorically and in no uncertain terms that the said story is not only untrue but also very misleading and has tarnished the image of our client among right-thinking members of society.
Our client informs us that he has never visited the Nima Police Station and no report of stealing of company products from a warehouse in Tema has been made against him or Sucryza Distributors Limited at Nima Police Station.
Our Client further informs us that a report of removal of products from a warehouse in Tema was made against Sucryza Distributors Limited at the Tema Regional Police Office and the company's officer in charge of the warehouse as well as the company's lawyers are handling the issue with the police.
We wish to state that Nabin Pandey has never been invited to the Tema Regional Police Office nor been arrested by the Police.
In that regard, the information given in the story in relation to Mr Nabin Pandey are totally false, untrue and misrepresentation of facts and you would have come to this realization had you made a simple check at the Nima Police Station or the Tema Regional Police Station or the Tema Regional Police Office.
The said story is not only untrue but it is malicious and a calculated attempt at destroying the reputation of our client without cause.
This story has also destroyed the image of our client among right-thinking members of society and threatens to destroy his business unjustifiably.
We, therefore, demand that you publish within 24 Hours a rejoinder on your Website giving it the same publicity and importance to correct the erroneous impression created by that publication in the minds of the general public.
We will take the necessary steps within the law to protect our client's interest without further recourse to you should you fail to abide by this letter.
