According to the him, the allegations have been sensationalised without any proper investigation and factual information.

“I categorically deny any such involvement in this matter. In fact, it is abundantly clear that these allegations are tenuous and malicious, and I believe this is an orchestrated attack on my profession and character,” Dixon said in a statement.

“... [I am] certain that at the end of this process [I] will be exonerated and fully vindicated of all charges. The nature of the allegations is unmeritorious and represent clutching at straws,” he added.

The attorney says he operates under high standards of transparency and that all his transactions are in compliance with the governing laws of the profession.
