Production Order – challenging false allegations

7th June, 2012

It has come to the attention of the London Photographers’ Branch (LPB) committee that scurrilous rumours have been circulated about LPB branch secretary Jason Parkinson in relation to the Production Order case.

The defamatory allegations refer to the Dale Farm Production Order legal challenge mounted by the NUJ and other news organisations to defend unpublished material gathered over two days of the traveller site eviction last year.

The allegation that has been circulated states that Jason had already handed the unpublished footage to the police.

Jason categorically denies this mischievous, false allegation, and both he and the branch committee are appalled that it has been made and circulated.

The Branch Committee totally supports Jason and will investigate the source of this misinformation which potentially damages the NUJ, the Production Order campaign and Jason’s professional, journalistic reputation.

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Jason for his courageous stand against the production order and the hard work of our NUJ legal team in winning a landmark victory for the NUJ and press freedom.
