Vincent Skeen - clarification and apology

On 16 August 2016 an article was published on the website regarding Vincent Skeen which contained information the publication of which was prohibited by statutory provisions and Court order; was misleading to the extent that it conveyed the impression that a Court order had been made having the effect of withholding information from the jury; and incorrectly described a Court order.

The Herald unreservedly apologises to Mr Skeen, the High Court, Youth Court, the Defence, the Crown, and to Mr Skeen's family in respect of that publication; and records that Mr Skeen's mother strongly denies engaging in any conduct of the sort that was imputed to her in the article.
