Jefferies: Apology 'provides important conclusion'

Christopher Jefferies said:

It provides an important conclusion to the whole aftermath of what I had to go through following my arrest.

As the letter itself explains it provides the public vindication which was not given at the time I was released from police bail.

Although the letter is addressed to me and is therefore expressing regret at what I had to endure, the letter also implicitly provides the public acceptance that the events didn't just affect me but affected a large circle of my relatives and friends.
