Email correspondence with Chloe Hadjimatheou, Senior Reporter BBC Current Affairs, 24 July to 17 August 2020 – Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media

From June 2020 onwards, several people associated with the Working Group were approached by BBC journalists Chloe Hadjimatheou and Tom Wright seeking interviews for a radio series about James Le Mesurier (JLM) and the White Helmets to be broadcast in November 2020. They stated that they were “interested in the perspective of the Working Group”. They had already interviewed JLM’s associates including leaders of the White Helmets.

Those who were approached reported to us that Ms Hadjimatheou was not serious about investigating the questions that have arisen about the role of the White Helmets, and was simply trawling for quotes that could be used to discredit the Working Group, trying to put words in their mouths.
