DOUBLE STANDARDS: Asian BBC News Chief Appears In Court After Naming Rotherham Sex Abuse Victim

A BBC news chief appeared in court last week to deny naming a Rotherham child sexual abuse victim.

Arif Ansari (43), head of news at BBC Asian Network, pleaded NOT guilty at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court on Thursday.

He was charged with publishing the name of a sex victim under the Sexual Offences (Amendment) Act 1992.

Victims of sexual offences have lifetime anonymity under the act.

Ansari spoke only to confirm his address as BBC Portland Place, London, WC1, and entered his plea through his solicitor.

A two-day trial is due to take place at the court on January 17 and 18.
