“AN article on 10 August 2009 “Terror case doc works in casualty” reported that, following his court acquittal on terrorist charges, Dr Asha was working for the NHS. Some readers may have understood the article to mean that Dr Asha is a terrorist suspect and a threat to national security. This was not our intention and it is untrue. We wish to make clear that The Sun stands by the jury’s verdict and does not suggest he is involved in terrorism. We apologise to Dr Asha and his family for any embarrassment and distress caused.” – The Sun (U.K.)
