The BBC is caught again...

Yet another scandal....

The BBC was dragged into a fresh row over standards after police claimed it broadcast a misleading investigation into child-trafficking.

The report, which led BBC1's Ten O'Clock News on Thursday, purported to expose Bulgarian criminals offering toddlers for sale to British couples for £40,000 each.

But Commissioner Veselin Petrov, head of police in the Bulgarian city where the undercover report was filmed, has insisted that there is no evidence of organised criminals selling children.

Petrov accused the BBC of entrapping 'Harry', the alleged trafficker, by offering him money, and threatened to charge the reporters with incitement, an offence that carries a prison sentence of up to a year. The BBC adamantly deny that they offered any money.
