Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner
for Standards from Mr Jaffer A Kapasi OBE DL MKD
Thank you for your letter of 12 April 2000.
I was intrigued to find of existence of a letter addressed to
the then Town Clerk which I understand from you makes reference
to me telephone conversation(s) with a third party and which you
further contend provides "evidence" of my involvement
in the above matter.
I understand from you that the letter in question
was written by the then Leader of Leicester City Council Peter
Soulsby and dated 22 April 1994. It is a matter of great concern
to me to be informed of the existence of a letter making allegations
against me along the lines in you letter.
I feel that under the circumstances I must exercise
my right to receive a full copy of the said letter from you, in
order to ascertain the context in which your selected statement
was made. I will then be in a position to respond to you and
also seek legal advice as appropriate. I look forward to hearing
