The Jewish Chronicle has paid £50,000 in damages and published a full apology to the Trustees of Interpal, a UK-registered charity that provides relief and development aid to Palestinians in need, over the newspaper’s publication of false and defamatory allegations in March 2019.

As well as publishing a full apology, paying damages and costs, the Jewish Chronicle offered to publish an article by Ibrahim Hewitt, Chair of the Trustees of Interpal, in which he sets out Interpal’s 25-year history of providing humanitarian aid.
