Yes, Readers, I received this letter from Larry Lalla, attorneys for the Education Facilities Company Limited (EFCL).
The letter was hand-delivered to my office this morning, although it is dated 8th August – over three weeks ago.
I sent this email in immediate reply:-

Subject: EFCL’s Confidentiality Policy

Good Day to you, Mr. Shah,
A copy of EFCL’s attorneys’ letter dated 8th August was hand-delivered to my office earlier today and I will soon be replying to those points in public.
In particular, I noted the third point in that letter –
“3. EFCL remains at all times committed to the principles of transparency in all aspects of its operations.”
Accordingly, I am again requesting a copy of the EFCL’s Confidentiality Policy.
Of course I am publishing this, in keeping with our shared commitment to transparency.

Very unfortunate that the “tenor” of an article could cause such a response. This new trend, which seemed amplified under the previous political administration, of state enterprises perceiving themselves as immune from criticism and using taxpayers’ money to buy lawyers’ time to deflect questioning is quite unacceptable.
Yes, Tosca – this new trend of public irresponsibility in high office is increasing, so look out for a new item on all this later on…
