Correction and clarification: Cherwell 20 October 2017

Cherwell would like to correct and clarify several inaccuracies in our front page lead article from 20 October 2017.

It suggested Oxford Union President Chris Zabilowicz is under investigation for “electoral malpractice”, that he had “placed” unelected officers onto the Union’s Standing Committee, and that he could be impeached as a result.

Although a ruling by Zabilowicz is currently under investigation for an alleged rule breach, he is not facing allegations of “electoral malpractice”, is not yet a defendant, cannot face impeachment directly as a result, and the two unelected committee members were appointed by existing members of Standing Committee and Union officers, including Zabilowicz.

We stand by the amended version of the article published on our website.
