In the issue of 29 March 2013, the Weekly Legal Update and EDAL reported on a decision of the Council of Europe's Social Rights Committee in which it found that Belgium [had] violated several rights of the European Social Charter of 1961 (...). The violations found were in fact violations of the European Social Charter Revised, and not of the Charter of 1961. The Weekly Legal Update and EDAL apologise for this mistake and hope that it did not cause confusion or inconvenience to readers.
