A news story published on thestrad.com on 15 July 2020 regarding a judgement by the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal incorrectly stated that the defendant in the case, Ms Chu Ang, was found guilty of acting as an agent for a violin dealer in Hong Kong. 

In fact Ms Chu was acquitted of the charge by the Magistrates’ Court and again by the Court of Final Appeal.

The Strad acknowledges the error, resulting from a misreading of the court’s judgement, and sincerely apologises to Ms Chu and her family, colleagues and friends for any harm or offence caused.
