FISK SUED BY SAUDI PRINCE

The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment & Analysis -

HUM­BLE pie at the High Court this week for the In­de­pen­dent’s Mid­dle East cor­re­spon­dent Robert Fisk, who was sued by the In­te­rior Min­is­ter of Saudi Ara­bia, Prince Nayef Bin Ab­dul Aziz al-Saud.

In an ar­ti­cle in April, Fisk ac­cused him of hav­ing or­dered po­lice to open fire on un­armed Shia demon­stra­tors in March, re­fer­ring to doc­u­men­tary ev­i­dence it had in its pos­ses­sion.

But the pa­per ac­cepted this week that the writ­ten or­der was a fake and agreed to pay undis­closed dam­ages to the prince.
