The article "What next after the EU's Vilnius summit?" incorrectly stated that the writer is a visiting fellow at Ceps. This is not correct. Salome Samadashvili is a visiting fellow at the Centre for European Studies (CES), a Brussels-based think tank.
The article "Security industry is shaping EU legislation" said Monique Pariat, director of the commission’s “Maritime Affairs and Fisheries” directorate-general, chaired an EOS workshop in Gothenburg last May on co-operation between civilian and military entities in maritime surveillance. The workshop was not organised by EOS.
The article "Tobacco giant spent up €1.25mn on EU lobbying in 2012" was corrected on Friday (4 October). The original article said PMI spent €1.5 million on food and drinks on MEPs, which turned out to be false after MEP Rebecca Harms retracted her statement.
The article "Security industry is shaping EU legislation" quoted Greek conservative MEP Maritta Giannakou as saying she supported the European Organisation for Security. Giannakous has informed us that she intended to say the European Defence Agency but had mistakenly said European Security Agency, which was then incorrectly translated into English by the Greek interpreter as ‘European Organisation of Security’. We updated the article to reflect the new changes on Thursday 3 October at 8.30.
Th article "Up to €2.2bn of public funds stolen in eight EU states" was corrected to say the study looked at both national budgets and the EU budget.
The story "Austria coalition re-elected, but anti-EU parties gain" was corrected to say the Freedom Party (FPO) scored its best result since 1999, not its best result ever.
The original story "Barroso's State of the Union hits sombre note" suggested it would be President Barroso's last such speech. It failed to take into account that the current European Commission remains in office until autumn 2014.
The original story "Interpol open to abuse by 'criminal states'" said Interpol published a red notice on Kross on the basis of a Russian request. In fact, it declined to do so.
