Three weeks ago, on or about April 8/9, the ‘Mathaba News Network’ sent a ‘cease and desist’ letter to Distribute IT. The letter alleged that I had engaged in defamation in a post on my blog, and demanded its removal, as well as the cessation of all services to anarchobase.com, and details regarding the author.
The post in question included a reference to a previous court case involving the owner of Mathaba News Network (a libel case against The Sunday Telegraph), and republished an article which originally appeared in the October 21, 2001 edition of The Sunday Telegraph, and which was the subject of court action.
For the record, it was never my intention to imply or otherwise suggest that the article was accurate.
Any further correspondence on this issue should be directed to: chummyfleming[at]yahoo[dot]com[dot]au.
