Apology from News of the World

posted on 14 July 2003
Commenting on the apology in the News of the World on Sunday 13th July, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor said:

In January the News of the World published a wholly false story regarding myself and Bishop Howard Tripp.

At the time and before publication of this claim I informed the News of the World that their allegation was totally false and without foundation.

I am glad that the News of the World have now finally admitted that their claim was untrue and I welcome the fact that they have apologised without reservation to both Bishop Tripp and myself.

I am pleased therefore to accept this apology and the confirmation that their allegation had no basis in fact.
