Financial institution dfcu Bank must retract a Notice of Legal Action dated 5th October, 2018, in which it claimed Rajiv Ruparelia, the only son of businessman Dr. Sudhir Ruparelia, was sponsoring fake news to sabotage the commercial bank.
The retraction demand was made by lawyers of Walusimbi & Co. Advocates acting on behalf of their client Rajiv Ruparelia in a Notice of Legal Action addressed to the secretary of the bank
dfcu bank alleges that Rajiv has been paying journalists to run negative stories about dfcu Bank. The bank demanded an apology from the youthful businessman, a thing he has refused to do saying he is innocent. He instead now demands that dfcu bank retracts their earlier claims.
Rajiv also protests the bank’s or their agents publishing of his personal mobile number. He says this was breach of confidence and enormously inconvenienced him.
“Our client's attention has been drawn to various social media publications through your agents M/S Kalenge, Bwanika, Ssawa & Co. Advocates clearly expressing themselves to be acting on your instructions wherein they to his regret and enormous inconvenience published and widely circulated among others his phone number - a detail otherwise given to you in confidence tied to his account held with yourselves by virtue of having succeeded the same from the Crane Bank Limited (In Receivership),” the notice from Walusimbi & Co Advocates and signed of by Walusimbi Nelson as advocate reads.
“Our client begrudges this breach of confidence actionable both civilly and criminally and accordingly requires an immediate formal apology similarly shared on all platforms hitherto published to, together with atonement for the same all not later than by the close of business this week,” it continues to say.
“Our client also demands that the publications expressed as notice of legal action date October 5, 2018 and referenced-2018-071-01, be forthwith retracted from the aforesaid forums and his customer rights be honored in full. All correspondences regarding this subject should be addressed through our chambers. Expect no further warning.”
