It is with deep regret that I inform you that a letter, “Open letter to The Vincentian newspaper” which I wrote, and asked I-Witness News to publish, was deeply flawed and contained a number of incorrect and untrue statements.
On Monday June 8 2015 at 2.03 pm London time which is 9:03 a.m. in St. Vincent, I wrote a letter from London entitled “Open letter to the Vincentian Newspaper” which I emailed to the Editor of the Vincentian newspaper at the times stated. In that letter I accused and stated as fact that The Vincentian newspaper had not made any reference to the matter of the Garifuna and Arnhim Eustace. That which I wrote about on that subject was totally untrue. I also wrote some disparaging remarks for which I apologise and withdraw.
From the date and time of my emailed copy of my letter, I never received a reply or comment from or by the Vincentian, or any request to withdraw it or change and correct the content. Still up to the moment of writing this communiqué I have had no contact with or from the Editor of The Vincentian and no complaint whatsoever from them.
I-Witness News has brought the error to my attention with a rebuke.
This matter came about because I of a mix-up in the dates of the newspapers.
But regardless of that I wish it known that I unequivocally apologise for the content of that letter to the Vincentian, I also apologize to any media that posted it.
