The article in The Daily Herald headlined “UNICEF report and meetings on Children’s rights on Saba” published on page 13 of Thursday’s edition attributed erroneously the remark that “Saba has still to pass an ordinance formally banning corporal punishment of children” to Lt. Governor Jonathan Johnson.
The remark should have been attributed to UNICEF representative Karin Kloosterboer.
In addressing the issue, Johnson said, “The island government is not the competent authority to pass such a law (the banning of corporal punishment), but the national government.” The error is regretted. On SabaNews the headline was: “Full attention for UNICEF report and Children’s rights”
