In yesterday's Star edition we ran an article titled 'British Army accused of arming poachers'.
For the record, we would like to state that the British Army is not accused of arming poachers, as per our headline. There however were allegations that poachers may be using stolen British Army uniforms and ammunition.
Secondly, we misquoted John Bradshaw, the British High Commission head of communication, who had said that the High Commission was "not apprised" about the recovery of the night vision equipment. The article had stated that the High Commission was "not surprised". Bradshaw was responding to a claim that a well-known poacher had been arrested with powerful night vision equipment allegedly from the British Army.
The direct quote from Bradshaw should have read: "We were not apprised of this particular case and therefore cannot speculate as to where this poacher sourced night vision equipment."
