Apology to Senator Cory Bernardi

On February 21, 2015, The Saturday Paper published an article by Kate Doak regarding Senator Cory Bernardi.
In discussing the financial and business dealings of Senator Bernardi, the article falsely alleged that one of the senator’s companies had been forced to surrender its security dealers’ licence after a review by ASIC, that the senator improperly used his electoral office as a place of business, that the senator withheld funds from a children’s charity, and that the senator breached parliamentary obligations in failing to comply with parliamentary disclosure requirements.
The Saturday Paper
and Ms Doak retract those allegations and apologise to Senator Bernardi for the distress and damage caused to him by their publication.

This article was first published in the print edition of The Saturday Paper on May 22, 2015 as "Inside Bernardi’s business web".
