Two major-generals have sent a lawyer's letter to axed Western Cape detective head Major-General Jeremy Vearey, demanding an apology and the retraction of comments said to have been made about them in a TV interview.

But Vearey said he had no intention of complying with their demand, maintaining what he said was true.

According to the letter from Ian Levitt Attorneys and Conveyancers, headed Defamatory statements made against Major-General Feroz Khan and Major-General Mzwandile Tiyo on eNCA, Vearey was given until 30 June to retract his comments made earlier this month on eNCA and apologise to the two officers.
