Libel Investigation – India
A world-renowned television channel broadcast a programme ‘exposing’ our client for child labour in one of their Indian factories. Our team was asked to identify the three children in the episode and investigate the allegations.
No information on the children was provided except for the 20 second footage of the children from the aired episode.
Over the course of four months, our investigators were able to track down the children. The investigation established that the allegation of child-labour was fabricated by an unethical journalist. Following an independent review of Audere’s investigation, the broadcaster acknowledged its fault and issued an apology to our client.
