Apology For Fake Press Release Published In Error

Earlier today, Scoop received a fake press release purporting to be from a number of groups and people regarding a boycott of certain goods from the Middle East.

The hoax press release was completely untrue, the events did not take place, and the statements attributed to the people named were never made by them.

It was published in error in the politics wire and removed immediately the fake was spotted.

Those named in the deleted press release had no knowledge or involvement in the fake press release and we apologise for any offence or embarrassment

The mistake is regretted and Scoop apologises for the error.
