Robert Amsterdam in a statement to QFM news says the Post Newspapers Limited is acting like a propaganda tool for the PF government.
On June 12 and 13, 2012, The Post Newspapers published two articles alleging that the former President Banda suffered a home robbery in which large amounts of cash went missing.
The Post Newspaper of Zambia has published a number of verifiably false news articles to attack political opponents of the government, says Robert Amsterdam, acting on behalf of the former President Rupiah Banda.
Amsterdam says he has a letter from the Zambian Inspector General of Police to The Post Newspaper indicating that the story published by the post was false.
He adds that a copy of the letter from the Zambian Inspector-General of the Police has been published on his website.
Former President Banda has denied the allegations as pure fiction, says Amsterdam.
Mr. Amsterdam has since demanded that The Post retracts the article.
