Retraction and Apology

In a 7 November 2016 edition of our regional news stories,we incorrectly reported that the (Antigua Governor General withdraws two knighthoods). In this article we issue the following apology.

An earlier version of this article wrongly claimed that there were ‘numerous allegations” in the British media that Nadhmi Auchi, and members of a delegation to Antigua and Barbuda led by Sir Anthony Bailey from the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of Saint George, received knighthoods win exchange for money”.

In fact, this claim was false and we have amended the article accordingly. Those who granted the awards to Nadhmi Auchi and the other members of the delegation received no payment or other remuneration for doing so. There were no such allegations in the British press either as we previously reported.

We apologise unreservedly to Nadhmi Auchi and the other members of the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of Saint George and are happy to put the record straight

We also apologise to our readers for the same.
