Statement From Jordan Williams
Relating to today’s High Court jury decision in Jordan Williams’ defamation claim against Colin Criag, Mr Williams says, “These proceedings were never something I wanted. However, Mr Craig’s false accusations and public threats to sue me could not go unanswered.”
“Of course I am pleased that a jury, having heard all of the evidence, and not just what the media have reported, have made such a finding.”
“Thank you to all of those who have supported me over the last twelve months, particularly my family, friends, colleagues and the donors to the organisations I work for. The support from my legal team, Peter McKnight, Ali Romanos and John Langford, has been unfaltering from day one.”
