Honourable Prime Minister,
This morning my husband, Dr. Soleiman Berjis, who had spent years of his precious life serving the community through his medical profession, was called to visit a patient at home and was murdered in a very gruesome and tragic way and his body was cut to pieces. [This left] the members of his family of ten with no caring [father]. It is quite possible that the perpetrators have destroyed the evidence of their crime through their machinations. I earnestly request that you send a reliable and trustworthy officer to investigate this matter.
