The audit was ordered by the ABC after discrepancies in the circulation figures of seven Media24 magazine titles had been discovered. A forensic audit ordered by Media24 has since revealed that 12 magazines had inflated their circulation figures.
ABC general manager Charles Beiles said the ABC had received Media24’s response to the results of the independent audit, ordered by the ABC. “I cannot comment on it,” he said.
Beiles said a press statement would be released after the board meeting.
