After investigation, The Bubble wishes to apologise to Angelos Sofocleous for the process used to remove him from the roles Editor of The Bubble, for which Durham SU is the controlling body and the publisher. A complaint that correct and fair regulatory procedures were not followed in removing Mr Sofocleous from both groups has been investigated and upheld. No complaint in connection to debates about freedom of speech or trans rights has been upheld. Durham SU societies are democratic, and members are free to elect or no-confidence their leaders, but they must do so in line their own and Durham SU’s regulations and with regard to the fairness of the process. In this case, that did not occur.
