For the record
In last week’s reports about rogue agents within the Special Operations Unit of the State Security Agency, City Press published a photograph of a house on page 4.
We referred to this as a house being used by the unit to conduct its business. It has since come to our attention that the house in the picture belongs to Renier and Nadine Swart, who live in it with their children.
The couple and their family have no connection to the spy agency or any of its activities.
The incorrect information about the house was given to us by one of the many sources who provided information as part of our investigation, and was initially thought to be accurate.
We have since established that it was inaccurate, and regret the error.
We apologise to the Swarts for any discomfort or damage caused by our reporting in this regard.
