STATEMENT BY THE OFFICE OF THE PRIME MINISTER

The Prime Minister will not engage in answering partial, deeply manipulated information being selectively leaked to parts of the media by someone who is directing the accused in a hideous assassination case to obviously try to build a narrative that is both misleading and self-serving.

The Prime Minister did his duty in this case despite the fact that he was threatened, as he himself reported, with a smear campaign.

The Prime Minister holds the right to take appropriate action at the right time, as well as answer with facts that will show the manipulation and the pure inventions being circulated right now and others being obviously concocted.

No amount of personal vendetta timed with vehement spite by someone will deviate from these facts.

Meanwhile, it must be noted that the Prime Minister has always followed all the codes and rules related to gifts he received.
