Prime Minster Dr. Ralph Gonsalves is seeking compensation from BDS Limited and Talk Show Host Margaret London, in relation to statements made during a recent radio programme.
Lawyer for Dr. Gonsalves, Graham Bollers has sent letters to both parties, seeking a full and unequivocal withdrawal and apology for the slander, to be published in one issue of each of the local weekly newspapers.
The letter says the text of the apology must be in a form which has been approved by the Law Firm.
The parties involved must also give an undertaking not to publish any similar defamatory statement against the Prime Minister, and to pay compensation in an amount to be agreed.
The statements are alleged to have been made during a broadcast of the Night Nurse Programme on Nice Radio, on Monday October 29th.
