CEEFIE apology

Dear IRSA EC

In the recent “IRSA Communique to Members”, the IRSA EC notes, “We also find the manner in which the incumbent members of the IRSA Executive Committee are referred in [the CEEFIE newsletter] as rather derogatory and distasteful. There is no need for this type of personal attack on the incumbent IRSA officers in the run up to the General Assembly.”

The reference in the CEEFIE newsletter reads, “We do wonder, though, if candidates Fairbank, Rowan, Hobbs, Granich, and Atkinson have respected their own statement of ethical and moral superiority and have accordingly withdrawn from the IRSA EC whenever it discussed the GA 2014 elections.”

We acknowledge this criticism. We apologise, and accept that we should have instead written, “We do wonder, though, if candidates Messrs Fairbank, Rowan, Hobbs, Granich, and Atkinson have respected their own statement of ethical and moral behaviour and have accordingly withdrawn from the IRSA EC whenever it discussed the GA 2014 elections.”

We have copied this apology to the DNMs, and will post it in the forums in which our newsletter was posted.


Best regards
Lester
