Apology from Mail on Sunday to Societe Generale
The Mail on Sunday (Daily Mail) has published an apology further to allegations made on 7 August 2011 concerning the situation of the Group which Societe Generale categorically denied.
The following statement was issued on 9 August by the Mail on Sunday and is online on their website:
"In an article that appeared in the print edition and online version of the Mail on Sunday on 7 August 2011, it was suggested that according to Mail on Sunday sources, Société Générale, one of Europe's largest banks, was in a 'perilous' state and possibly on the 'brink of disaster'.
We now accept that this was not true and we unreservedly apologise to Société Générale for any embarrassment caused."
