Apology: Mr McTernan

May 24, 2012

On May 13 2011, we published an article entitled "Pears funded charity which hosted jihadist" which related to the Pears Foundation, a charity called Forward Thinking, and an individual called Tafazal Mohammed.

We have since accepted that Mr Mohammed is not a jihadist and have apologised to him, the Pears Foundation and Forward Thinking for this error. It follows that there was no basis for linking Forward Thinking's director, Mr McTernan, to any jihadist. We apologise to Mr McTernan for the distress caused.
