MailOnline has today apologised in the High Court to Sand Van Roy (the Dutch-Belgian actor and former comedian) over revealing her identity as a complainant in a rape case against a French film director (allegations which the individual strongly denies), together with publishing false details about her complaint. MailOnline has also agreed to pay Ms Van Roy substantial damages, as well as her legal costs.
Sand Van Roy was represented by Nigel Tait, Helena Shipman and Katherine Hooley.
