Milton Samuda has apologised to the Press Association of Jamaica (PAJ) for his role in the Asafa/Sherone tape saga.
The apology was made at a meeting with representatives of the PAJ on Saturday.
Samuda, the attorney-at-law for track stars Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson, had requested that journalists hand over recordings of an interview done with the athletes following their positive drug tests.
The tapes were edited, and aspects of the interview erased.
At its annual general meeting last weekend, the PAJ called for Samuda to resign his position as Chairman of Television Jamaica. However, in a media release yesterday, the PAJ said it will review that call.
Samuda has already taken leave of absence as Chairman of Television Jamaica Limited and Deputy Chairman of the RJR Communications Group in the wake of the controversy related to the interviews.
In the meantime, in a joint release issued by the PAJ and Samuda, both acknowledged that errors were made by the journalists and Samuda.
The PAJ reported that the journalists had apologised to their newsrooms and the journalism body for their actions and these were accepted.
The release said that both the journalists and the attorney have assured that their actions will not be repeated.
"The regrets have been acknowledged and accepted by all parties," the release said.
In relation to the question of payola, both the PAJ and Samuda have indicated they are satisfied that it does not arise in this situation.
