ABC apologises to Archbishop Makarios for any hurt or offence experienced

In other languages: ELBG


Australia’s public broadcaster ABC has apologised to the head of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese in Australia, Archbishop Mr Makarios, for a story it published earlier in the year.

The article was published last April and it was in relation to the Archdiocese and it ages care institutions.

Around 3 p.m. on Thursday, the ABC published the following in its section for Corrections and Clarifications:

«On 16 April 2021, the ABC published an article about the conduct of the Greek Orthodox Church in Australian in connection with its aged care facilities.

The ABC wishes to clarify that this story was not intended to suggest that Archbishop Makarios of Australia had personally funnelled money from St Basils to the Greek Orthodox Church, or that he had personally spent money intended for aged care on his own lifestyle.

Further, the story was not intended to suggest that Archbishop Makarios had through any action on his part negligently caused the deaths of the 45 residents at the St Basils aged care home in Melbourne. Any such interpretation of the article is incorrect.

To the extent any readers understood the story in this way, the ABC apologises to Archbishop Makarios for any hurt or offence experienced. This was never the ABC’s intention.»
