Yesterday (May 17, 2011), due to a technical glitch, Seeking Alpha inadvertently published an article originally submitted in February by Debra Fiakas entitled Sino Clean Energy: Liquid Diamonds. Seeking Alpha elected not to publish the article at that time.
The article published yesterday was time stamped as if it was current, when in fact the analysis was dated, and potentially no longer reflected Ms. Fiakas' view.
Furthermore, the article was published yesterday without Ms. Fiakas' knowledge and omitted Ms. Fiakas' disclosure ("no position") and disclaimer ("Crystal Equity Research publishes research on SCEI in its Focus Report Series for issuer sponsored research coverage").
We apologize sincerely to Ms. Fiakas and to our readers.
