Well not that I want to join, the hr is using the offer letter I signed against me. He kinda gangster on me saying I should know what I have signed and what powers they hold....
And yes, the HR guy has written me a wonderful email:
Dear Mr. XXX,
As per our Tele-conversation, I have gone through the whole process with the hiring manager and the department director. It seems that the department director is not allowing such irresponsible act and would therefore require you to reimburse all hiring costs related to this position up to 12th June 2021. The vacancy is now deemed urgent as the resigning person is leaving on 18th June 2021. It is a formality that our team allows you to sign a consent form on the salary adjustment and redesignation to Managerial level. We have obtained legal approval from related government authorities on the salary adjustment as this was declared as a restructuring for survival. As such, the amount that will be claimed against your good self will be a total of 1 months salary in lieu without any deductions or adjustments. Should you continue to refrain signing the redesignation letter, a legal notice from our lawyer will be issued to you.

Don't be too worried.. I think you have very good reasons not to join that company, after what they've done.
So, you can just politely mention that you are intending to seek assistance of Department of Labour to resolve this issue.
You can mention that any payments in-lieu, if necessary, will only be made after consulting with Department of Labour.
Try to strongman them into backing off. If they insist, then do email the Department of Labour and see how they can assist you.
