LONDON: A UK court has ordered the newspaper The Independent on Wednesday to pay Second Deputy Premier and Minister of Interior of Saudi Arabia, Prince Naif, libel damages over an article which accused him of ordering police chiefs to shoot and kill unarmed demonstrators during this year’s Arab uprisings.

Lawyer Rupert Earle said his client Prince Naif will donate the damages, which he described only as “substantial,” to a charity. read more

    Ultimately, a strong commitment to truth and honest journalism helps all of humanity.
