ISLAMABAD : US blogger Cynthia Ritchie Thursday sent former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani a legal notice of Rs120mn in which she asked to take legal action against him unless he tenders an unconditional apology. Ritchie sent the notice through her counsel Nasir Azeem Khan Advocate, in which she stated that Gilani had harassed her and damaged her reputation by making false accusations. She alleged that the former prime minister had harassed her “in connivance” with ex-interior minister Rehman Malik in 2011. The legal notice accused the PPP media cell of harassing Ritchie on social media as well. Saying that she was defamed locally and internationally, the US blogger called on Gilani to apologise. Ritchie warned that in case the PPP leader did not apologise for levelling allegations against her within 14 days, she would initiate legal action against him.
