In his words: “Incidentally, it became a very fair discussion. The police said there was a mix-up somewhere to have warranted me being declared wanted, and they apologised.

“They said that the police is for the people; in a democracy, it is their responsibility to be there for the people, not to intimidate, not to harass me.

“That they didn’t intend to harass me, they didn’t intend to intimidate me. Of course, you know we have a case in court, my lawyers will advise what steps we are going to take."
