UK newspapers pay damages to man cleared of murder
London: Eight British newspapers are
paying damages to a man arrested and later cleared in a murder
investigation after he sued them over articles published
during his arrest.
Christopher Jefferies was arrested last year by police
investigating the murder of his tenant, Joanna Yeates. He was
later released and another man confessed to killing the woman.
Jefferies was not in court today for the settlement
against the publishers of The Sun, the Daily Mirror, the
Sunday Mirror, the Daily Mail, the Daily Record, the Daily
Express, the Daily Star and The Scotsman. The amount of the
damages was not disclosed.
Separately, three judges found The Sun and the Daily
Mirror in contempt of court for stories which were found to
potentially jeopardise a prosecution.
