The other two persons mentioned by RPK were Lieutenant Colonel Aziz Buyong and the wife of the deputy prime minister, Rosmah Mansor.
In a two sets of a three-page letter to RPK from legal firm Gab, Rao & Chuah, RPK was asked to issue an apology to the clients, pay RM1 million in damages in which the money will be donated to charitable foundation. The lawyers have given RPK seven days to reply, or else ....!
I took the liberty of producing a set of a letter of demand made by Colonel Norhayati Hassan through her lawyers to RPK for us to read in the name of transparency and for the public interest.
