Apology to Michael Laws
- Aug 09,2021
On 20 June 2020 Crux published a column by Dr Mike Riddell and Matt Sole titled ‘Otago environmental group attacks “rebellious” ORC councillors’. The column contained the opinions of its authors regarding moves by some ORC Councillors to oust ORC Chair Marian Hobbs. The opinions expressed by the authors were critical of ORC Councillor Michael Laws. The column was taken down following a complaint by Mr Laws who believed the authors’ opinions were defamatory of him. Crux wishes to apologise to Mr Laws for any distress or embarrassment its publication of the column may have caused.
