Kadir and another v Channel S Television Ltd

Libel and slander – Damages. The claimants, the owners and operators of a money transfer business in London, contended that the defendant channel had broadcast a TV programme that was defamatory of them. Judgment was entered for the claimants for damages to be assessed and for the determination of whether the claimants were entitled to any other remedies. The Queen's Bench Division held that in respect of general damages, the correct sum for the defendant to pay was £20,000 to the first claimant and £20,000 to the second claimant.
