The Irish Daily Star has confirmed that former editor Michael O'Kane followed the correct editorial processes when the newspaper decided to publish topless pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge.
As a result of the publication on 15 September 2012, issues arose with the shareholders of Independent Star Limited.
Having considered those issues in tandem with Mr O'Kane, it is Mr O'Kane's decision to resign as editor of the Irish Daily Star, effective immediately.
Mr O'Kane acted at all times in a highly professional and appropriate manner and in the best interests of the newspaper.
