“In their natural and ordinary meaning, the words published by you mean and are understood by right thinking members of the society to mean that; (a) Our client is a murderer, (b) Our client has conspired to murder you, (c) Our client has conspired with people to murder you, (d) Our client has conspired with people to carry out criminal acts and (e) Our client has no regard for the law,” read the later in parts.
