KUALA LUMPUR: Former deputy prime minister Tun Ghafar Baba has appointed a lawyer to handle his divorce from his second wife, Heryati Abdul Rahim, and urged the media to leave his private life out of the limelight. 

Ghafar, when approached by reporters as he emerged from the Syariah Court registrar's office yesterday at about 12.25pm, said: “I respect you all (reporters), so you all have to respect me, too. I am a private citizen now; I am no longer with the Government. Do you understand?”
