BOST Considers Legal Action Against Herald Newspaper
The Management of the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST) has threatened to sue the editor of the Herald Newspaper if he does not stop the publication of false contents about the organization.
The management issued the threat in a rejoinder signed by the General Counsel and Head of Legal Services and the Media Manager of BOST and addressed to the editor.
“Any attempt to spread falsehood about BOST will not be countenanced. Should that be the case, BOST will not hesitate to seek legal redress to serve as deterrence,” the letter sighted by Adomonline.com threatened.
The letter was a rejoinder to a front page publication in the Monday, 18th December, 2017 edition of the Herald Newspaper which alleged that another Multi-million scandal has hit BOST.
The paper promised to reveal details of the scandal in its subsequent editions.
But the management of BOST in the rejoinder disputed the publication as according to them, BOST is unaware of any scandal.
Below is the letter:
“We have read with dismay, a right corner front page heading –“Another Multi-Million Cedi Scandal Hits BOST – Details Coming Soon” published in your Monday, 18th December, 2017 edition.
