Nadhmi Auchi, the businessman and philanthropist, has successfully settled his claims for defamation against the publishers of The Washington Times and Elaph, the latter being a London-based Arabic online newspaper. As well as paying substantial damages, Elaph has removed the defamatory article from its website and published a prominent apology to Mr Auchi. The Washington Times has also removed the article complained of from its website, undertaken not to republish it and issued a letter requesting that any third party re-publishing all or part of its article should stop doing so.
