@thetimes pays £30,000 libel damages to former Guantanamo detainee, @Moazzam_Begg & @UK_CAGE and issues apology for linking them to Reading suspected terror attack bit.ly/3ofAoPg #Defamation #Libel #TheTimes
They were represented by our @ZillRah7 and Counsel, Mark Henderson from @DoughtyStreet. Zillur said: “We are delighted by this outcome... £30,000 is a substantial sum of damages for an article that was online for less than 24hrs. It exemplifies the gravity of the allegations...”
Mr Begg, of CAGE said: “This appears to be a case of Times editors sexing up its journalist’s story to create a false link between a Muslim grassroots advocacy group & a suspected terrorist attack... this settlement serves as a reminder to others that the truth is non-negotiable”
