News Bulletin, BBC News Channel, 29 July 2018: Finding by the Executive Complaints Unit

A viewer challenged the accuracy and impartiality of a report on the release of Ahed Tamimi, a teenage Palestinian girl who had been imprisoned for slapping and kicking an Israeli soldier.

Although the item was duly impartial and, in most respects, accurate, the reporter’s statement that “children are not allowed to be tried under international law” was inaccurate.
Partly upheld

Further action
Journalists have been reminded that the reach of international law is not always as it is claimed and should be checked for accuracy.
