Despite that, we realise that the film sparked off another round of dissension between Tampan and the public, this is unacceptable to us and unsuitable to what we represent.
We hereby imply the general public and the parties concerned to please exercise patience as our eminent association is on top of this issue and will certainly ensure fairness and justice
