25 June 2021
  • The Times has apologised after making false and defamatory claims in articles regarding the Bafta Chair Krishnendu Majumdar and Bafta’s decision to present Noel Clarke with an OBCC award.
  • The Mail Online has also issued an apology
  • Both publications accept there are no “close links” between Bafta Chair and Clarke.
  • Decision to allow Clarke to receive a previously announced award was determined by the lack of evidence Bafta had at the time of having to make its decision on whether to proceed with the presentation.
