it also advises other schools to “be cautious and not be deceived by them.” Some pretty intense implying going on there. That seems to be a pretty clear statement that they are “deceitful.” Thanks for the legal brekdown, MT, though don’t you think, considering that last sentence, that by U.S. standards it would be considered libel, unless of course it could be proven that they were indeed, “deceitful.”
Agree that, even were it libel, probaly nothing would happen should these blokes decide to go the legal route, though I’d imagine I’d be pretty pissed about this if I were them, no matter how “deceitful” my behaviour might be (unless of course I was stealing, or pedophiling, in which case I guess I would expect and deserve it). I would probably be looking into some alternate means of extracting compensation for my humiliation.
The fact that a bushiban owner would resort to such a thing hardly suprises me, but the thought that a newspaper would accept such a “memorandum” and publish it is disturbing to say the least.
