Dear Government Official 1,
Please, take the slaps now. You’re known. If you and your people keep denying your identity, it will hurt you more.
The state investigative bodies and the government will release their report and the names they will get from the UK, US and French authorities in November 2020.
If they are not done with their own investigations by then, they will leak the unfinished report all the same.
Your identity will not shock anybody, but it will damage you more than it would now. There is a Ghanaian proverb about postponing a deadly slap. Let someone remind you about it.
