Apologies for the Saudi visa story
THE Brunei Times expresses its sincere apologies to the Embassy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the error in our printed news article dated October 26, 2016 regarding the new visa fee structure and for the inconvenience it has caused.
The last three paragraphs of the printed story did not form part of the statement provided by the embassy.
Based on the set of standards for accuracy and verification that our newsroom strives to follow every day, the information contained in the said paragraphs should not have made it to the printed story. We regret this instance when the failure in our standard checks has unnecessarily caused confusion to parties concerned.
We offer our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience, and we resolve to further strengthen our news verification work in order to continue to be of good service to the country.
