NEW ATLANTA NIGHTCLUB OWNER REQUESTS ACCURATE MEDIA REPORTING

 ATLANTA, Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Bymann Enterprises, Inc., the owner of Atlanta nightclubs Diamonds Phase 2 and Club Silk located at 2329 Cheshire Bridge Road, Atlanta, today requested the Atlanta media to practice responsible journalism in reports regarding racketeering and money laundering charges against the clubs' previous ownership.
 "This request is in response to ambiguous news reports involving nightclubs Diamonds and Pearls which operated at the same address until the club was purchased by Bymann Enterprises, earlier this year," said Econuel Ingram, general manager, Bymann Enterprises.
 Bymann Enterprises bought the popular Atlanta nightclubs and renamed them in March 1993. Since November 1992, the clubs have been mentioned repeatedly by Atlanta news media in reports of the on-going murder investigation of Fred Tokars' wife Sara Tokars. With the arrest of Fred Tokars yesterday, the clubs are once again receiving negative exposure in news reports that do not clearly distinguish them as new businesses not in any way associated with the Tokars case.
 "The mission of Diamonds Phase 2 and Club Silk is to provide a reputable and safe venue for quality entertainment and evolve as a major attraction in the city's focus on the entertainment industry," said Ingram. "In light of the nature of recent news reports, we are asking the media to carefully phrase their reports so the public receives clear and accurate information. To date, there have been numerous news media references to the Cheshire Bridge location that have been damaging to the businesses presently there in operation."
