A statement issued last night by Dharamlall’s Attorney,  Mr Glen Hanoman, stated: “Given the sensational speculations and inaccurate information already in the public domain, I am constrained, on behalf of my client to clarify the following: We, first and foremost, wish for the matter to be thoroughly and professionally investigated. Secondly, and towards this end, I have advised my client not to comment on the issue or engage the media so as not to interfere with, or prejudice this process. My client unequivocally denies any involvement in any criminal act.”

INews understands that the police are currently investigating a report of threatening behaviour made about a week ago against the PPP/C Member of Parliament. The matter has since been referred to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) for legal advice.
