[PDF] BBC apologises to Trafigura

The BBC has today apologised in Court to Trafigura, the leading commodities trader, over false allegations made in May of this year on Newsnight and in a related website article. The BBC will broadcast a further apology during this evening’s edition of Newsnight and publish the Court statement on its website. As well as apologising, the BBC has agreed to pay £25,000 in damages (which Trafigura will donate to charity), in addition to Trafigura’s legal costs.
