Richard: Right.

Hala: He is saying whatever you hear my name mentioned in it’s not
true. I’m telling you right now don’t listen to it it’s false.

Richard: But even if we could report it, which we can’t.

Hala: Absolutely.

Richard: It’s not true. So you don’t know what the allegation is and

Richard: Possibly.

Hala: Possibly.
