The Jerusalem Post, in December 2004, posted on the Q & A section of www.jpost.com the submission of a reader who made statements about Mr. Rupert Aumer of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.
Prior to the posting, the statements were not substantiated in any way by The Jerusalem Post, due to The Jerusalem Post's view of the nature of the Q & A.
It was not The Jerusalem Post's intention to lend any credence whatsoever to those statements. The statements remained on the Web site until April 2005, when they were removed at Mr. Aumer's request.
The Jerusalem Post recently reached a resolution with Mr. Aumer of claims that he pursued as a result of the posting. The Jerusalem Post deeply regrets that it posted those statements and apologizes to Mr. Aumer and his family for having done so.
