Lawyer Manase orders newspaper to retract story

Successful petitioner for the Kandep electorate Alfred Manaseh has called on The National newspaper to retract a story or face court for defamation.

Manaseh in a press conference today said he will also be suing the former opposition leader Don Polye for releasing malicious statements.

He said the claims laid against him in The National newspaper were all lies and lacked evidence.

The newspaper in an article published a story claiming that Manaseh had a relationship with a female Electoral Commission officer and has a teenage daughter from that relationship.

Manaseh said these are all lies and tactics used by Polye to divert from the truth.

Meanwhile Manaseh is appealing to the people in Kandep to remain calm and let justice take its course.
