  1. Will he pursue any legal actions to (a) hold those accountable for his unnecessary suspension and (b) Writing the wrong of sullying his impeccable reputation, given the then media stories with his photograph still embedded in the minds of ppl?

    Retirement and good-boy letter were duly earned way before this case. They were already his.

    So technically, he’s agreeing to “ok never mind, go now.”

    Appealing to authors out there, please write a book entitled, “In the interest of all concerned.”
