News784 Issues Apology To Ray Anthony John

APOLOGY ISSUED TO RAY ANTHONY JOHN

On the 31st July, 2018, News 784 published an article of News in which we erroneously stated that Ray Anthony John a Vincentian National living in Antigua and Barbuda was charged with attempted murder.

We have since learned that this was erroneous and that the person actually charged with the alleged murder is Rey John an Antiguan National.

News 784 wishes to offer an unreserved, full, frank and public apology to Mr. Ray Anthony John and his family for any distress caused to him or injury to his reputation which he may have suffered as a result of this unfortunate error.

We wish to assure Mr. John that there was no malice intended in the publication of the said article.

We deeply regret having published the same and offer our apologies for any embarrassment it may have caused.

    so accept and would be so urged.
