Telegraph apologises for article on Qatar Charity
June 18 2020 12:51 AM

The British newspaper, The Telegraph, published on Monday an apology for two articles, one of which was titled 'Charity's links to Qatar raised fears' published on August 17, 2019, while the other was titled 'Woman killed during jihadi prison attack worked for British charity boss' published on October 19, 2019.
In the two articles, the paper said that there were grounds to question the independence of Nectar Trust (a UK charity), arising out of its relationship with Qatar Charity (QC), which was described as a terrorist organisation by Saudi Arabia in both articles.
The Telegraph admitted that there is no reason to question the independence of Nectar Trust. The Charity Commission in the UK has confirmed that the designation of QC as a terrorist organisation had "no legal standing in the UK". It also apologised for any distress or embarrassment caused by the said articles.
