Reuters found a statement on Rifat’s lawyer’s website that says:
“Mr Rifat denies the allegations that have been made against him. He has not been charged with any offence.”
“Mr Rifat is deeply distressed by the accusation and is working to clear his name as soon as possible. It would not be appropriate for us or for him to comment further at this stage in light of the fact that the investigation is on-going.”
