World Architectural News published an article on 29 May 2009 concerning Haydar Hassan and Tomas Gulisek. This article suggested that Mr Hassan and Mr Gulisek had been dismissed from the firm Burt Hill. The article also suggested that Mr Hassan and Mr Gulisek had been suspected of engaging in inappropriate conduct.
World Architectural News accepts that the suggestions were baseless and should not have been made. World Architectural News immediately removed the article from its website and published a statement from Burt Hill confirming that the article was inaccurate. World Architectural News unreservedly apologises in this regard for any distress that may have been caused to Mr Hassan and Mr Gulisek by its article.
