Boland Withdraws All Legal Actions Against Ron Dennis

Peter Boland, the man who accused Ron Dennis of racist and homophobe behavior at an employment tribunal in Southampton last week, issued a statement earlier today, withdrawing all legal actions on his former employer.

“I have decided to withdraw my action against Mr Dennis and all respondents in the case. I unreservedly apologize to Mr Dennis and all respondents, and to the Southampton Employment Tribunal, for wasting their time with what I now realize were unfounded allegations,” said the statement.

“In particular, I apologize to Mr Dennis for suggesting that he is, or was, either racist or homophobic, or that he ever made any remarks or performed any actions that would suggest that he was.”

“I feel great remorse for the upset that I now realize I have needlessly caused to him, to his family and to his colleagues. Lastly, I will return the car, which was the subject of county court proceedings. I consider this matter now closed and will not be taking further action, or making further comments, in connection with it in the future,” concluded the statement.

Boland, who used to work for Dennis as a stewart at his private airline, had accused his former employer of having sacked him following rumors among other employers about his alleged homosexuality. Also, Boland told the media that he heard Dennis reveal that he has to wash his hands after 'shaking hands with Arabs all day', following McLaren's boss visits in the Middle East.

Dennis came yesterday to give his personal view on the matter, while dismissing the accusations.
