Syed Ali’s spokeswoman Julia Thiem has responded to the allegations made in the BBC Five Live Investigates programme. Talking exclusively to BRFCS, Ms Thiem confirmed that they “take the allegations made by BBC Radio 5 very seriously. Unfortunately the report contained a number of factual inaccuracies and misleading statements, which are damaging to both WGA and Mr Ahsan Ali Syed. We are currently investigating these discrepancies and will be responding accordingly”.
More on this developing story soon.
