Correction: Hale’s wife clarifies

2009-08-06 00:00

THE wife of Mike Hale, the insurance broker who recently skipped the country, has asked The Witness to clarify aspects of Tuesday’s article entitled “Mike Hale’s business premises dismantled and put up for sale”.

Mrs Hale said she is not dismantling the office, but merely collecting furniture that she inherited after her mother’s death, and which was stored at Hale’s office.

She denies that she sold the BMW, but said she contacted Standard Bank and informed them where the car was parked, for when and if they needed to collect it.

“All financial institutions that Mike dealt with have been contacted and informed by me …”

Mrs Hale also denied saying that the proceeds from the sales of the business and house will be used to repay the bond. She said “certain legal procedures will have to be followed” and that she is not familiar with legal matters and procedures.

The Witness apologises for any inconvenience the article may have caused Mrs Hale.
