In addition, Mr. Arase in statement he issued Monday, from UK corroborated that he suspected there must be disconnection somewhere because every information needed by his successor were provided in his handover notes.
“I’m also not aware that any letter was written to me because if there was any dropped in my house, someone would have alerted me.
“It’s unfortunate that this matter is being made a media issue because my successor has my telephone number and could have called me for any clarification or even sent me a text message rather than addressing the media on an issue well documented in my handover notes” Arase specified.
