Ample issued the following statement this afternoon:
“In keeping with an official Brief which our Agency has received, we note the widespread media publication of a current legal matter involving Mr Emile Elias.
Mr Elias completely refutes in the strongest possible terms the allegations made against him.
He looks forward to establishing his innocence under the due process of law. Given the fact that the matter is now before the Courts and therefore sub-judice, Mr. Elias is unable to make any further comments.”
