MSA Minutes Clarified

MSA Minutes Clarified

Dear Sirs,

I would like to clarify a point which was discussed at the WMSA AGM held at 2pm on Saturday, September 22 at LBI.

As is stated in my secretary's report, the minutes of the 1971-72 AGM was lost not because of any fault of mine.

I would like to deny any responsibility for them being lost.

Perhaps I did not clarify this point enough at the AGM.

Mr Thomas Iboh, the Hon-Secretary of the 1971—72 committee, stated that he did not remember whether he gave the minutes to Mr Boniface Sii, our secretary at that time (i.e. when the new committee took over the office). I find this hard to believe that Mr Iboh, being an intelligent person should forget whether he gave the minutes to Mr Boniface Sii (this being an important matter). Mr Boniface Sii has denied receiving the minutes from Iboh. The secretary's files have been searched thoroughly but with no result.

Mr Boniface resigned in June due to pressure of work. So when I took over the post (being the assistant secretary at the time) the minutes were already lost. Perhaps I have not emphasised this point strongly enough at the AGM. It was between Mr Iboh and Mr Boniface Sii.

In between the time when I took over office and the recent AGM. I have tried my best to find out both from Iboh and Boniface to remember exactly where they could have placed them. But it was like talking to two silent walls. How can I find the minutes when those two involved can't remember anything about it and don't want to talk about it?

Thus I claim that I am an innocent party who has been criticised unfairly, on a matter, which I have nothing to do with. I have tried my best, but this was fruitless because both the two persons mentioned have been uncooperative.

Yours faithfully,

Charles Lian
