Dear Editor,

Thank you for your letter of September 23, 2009.

I have no knowledge of the facts to which the complainant refers [‘Waiting for eighteen years’ SN, October 2]. I have therefore requested Mr Raymond King to respond to the allegations.

I enclose his reply.

Yours faithfully,
Rex H. Mc Kay, SC

Editor’s note

This preliminary note was inadvertently omitted when Mr Raymond King’s response was published to Mr Leon Jeetlall’s letter in our edition yesterday, captioned ‘Waiting for eighteen years.’
