Dear Madam

RE: N GATTOO // MEDIA ENQUIRY

1. We are instructed to act on behalf of Mr. Naushad Gattoo.

2. We refer to the above matter, your emails transmitted to our client on the 19th June
2018 at 14h35 and 14h45 respectively, as well as the subsequent telephone
conversation between yourself and our client.

3. We confirm that the allegations as leveled against our client are clearly defamatory,
vexations and spurious and our client intends challenging the allegations in the
appropriate fora.

4. Attempts have been made by the complainant and its attorney to create a situation of
wrongdoing, which is denied and is unacceptable.

Associate: Tasneem Patel LLB (UJ), Professional Associate: Khalid Mahomed Zahir Osman LLB (UJ), Candidate Attorney:
Waseem Ahmad Bava BA LLB (Wits)
5. The institution of criminal charges, which are baseless and constitute an abuse of
process, as well as the lodging of a complaint with the Law Society is nothing more than
an attempt to create an atmosphere to prejudice our client and his good reputation.

6. We confirm that the allegations are vehemently denied. The matters are accordingly
opposed and are sub judicae.

7. All our client’s rights remain strictly and specifically reserved.

8. We trust that the above is in order.

Thanking you

Yours faithfully,
