Businessman, Emile Elias, contracted public relations firm, All Media Projects Limited (AMPLE), to defend his reputation after the nation learned he was charged for the sexual assault of a 17-year-old girl.
The 84-year-old is accused of sexual grooming and sexual penetration.
The incidents allegedly occurred in 2019.
However, Elias sought to declare his innocence via a statement from AMPLE.
The company said: “In keeping with an official Brief which our Agency has received, we note the widespread media publication of a current legal matter involving Mr Emile Elias.”
“Mr Elias completely refutes in the strongest possible terms the allegations made against him.”
“He looks forward to establishing his innocence under the due process of law.”
Noting that the matter was before the courts and therefore subject to become sub judice AMPLE explained that Elias cannot make any further comments at this time.
