BBC Today programme correction regarding Hizb ut-Tahrir
Reference – CAS-3502641-ZMSWNH
Thank you for taking the time to contact us with your concerns relating to a report on the Today programme this morning about Robb Leech.
We raised this issue with the programme makers and have published the following statement on the BBC’s corrections and clarifications website:
“On this morning’s “Today” programme on BBC Radio 4, Richard Dart, who was jailed in 2013 for preparing acts of terrorism, was erroneously referred to as being a member of Hizb ut-Tahrir. We are happy to make it clear that this is not the case.”
We’re grateful to you for taking the opportunity to point out this error to us.
