Letter of record - HMAS Success Commission of Inquiry media reporting
10 February 2012
In an article published on the website of The Australian newspaper on 9 February 2012, reporter James Massola stated that certain findings had been made against the three senior sailors who were landed from HMAS Success in May 2009. That part of Mr. Massola's report was incorrect.
The article also referred to allegations of a ‘sex ledger’. The Gyles Commission of Inquiry found no evidence of the alleged ‘sex ledger’ referred to in the article.
I acknowledge and appreciate the cooperation of The Australian in having the inaccurate content removed during the evening of 9 February.
