On 5th December 2019, FactCheck published, in the Daily Mirror, a statement reported as being made by State Minister Nimal Lanza in the Divaina newspaper on 6 September 2019. FactCheck classified Minister Lanza’s statement as FALSE. It has been brought to our attention now, that the Minister’s statement was reported incorrectly in the press. 
In his statement, originally made in parliament, State Minister Lanza referred to statistics on ‘investments’. However, the press article incorrectly reported him as referring to ‘exports’ (Exhibit 1).

 

Considering this information, the statement that was checked, which is attributed to Minister Lanza in the public record, will not be attributed to Minster Lanza any longer by FactCheck. Consequently, FactCheck will re-classify this verdict in relation to Minister Lanza as null and void, and communicate this re-classification through all its dissemination channels. FactCheck wishes to thank the Minister for bringing this matter to our attention, and expresses its regret for the consternation that has been caused.
