For the record

CityPress - - News -

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.
