The inquiry noted that Mr Sue made “several apologies in advance as to any historical inaccuracies and colourful inclusions” within his book.
“Yet Silver has treated the work as such and castigated on those grounds, unfairly, we suggest,” it found.
Barry Sue said he felt the inquiry meant his father’s reputation was “well intact”.
“I hope that it puts a lot of people’s minds at rest now because Dad had a tremendous following,” he said. But Ms Silver has stood by her claims that Mr Sue could not have been where he said he was and questioned the independence of the inquiry, saying Mr Sue’s son knew the company that conducted it.
She said she first discovered the discrepancies a few months before Mr Sue died but she did not believe that was the right time to confront him because he was too sick.
Ms Silver took no pleasure in making her concerns public and much of the information contained in the inquiry was as a result of things Mr Sue had told other people, including Mr Harlem and Mr Greenwood.
“There is not a single thing in this report that refutes anything,” she said.
