New Delhi:  Socialist leader George Fernandes' wife Leila on Monday termed as "piece of fiction" the Wikileak cable revelations that the fire-brand activist sought financial assistance from US spy agency CIA to organise sabotage activities during Emergency.

The cables during Henry Kissinger's time, made public by Wikileaks, claimed that then trade union leader Fernandes sought to get funds from CIA and the French government.

"This is a piece of fiction. There is no question of George asking for funds from CIA. He was very anti-American and you know this," Ms Leila told PTI.

"This is complete falsehood, completely concocted and I strongly refute this false story," she said.
