On 29 March and 1 April last year we reported that Mr Patel was an evil terrorist who had been jailed for his part in a transatlantic jet terror plot.
While he had been convicted under Section 58 of the Terrorism Act of possessing material that might be useful to terrorists, the court accepted that he unwittingly held documents for a friend of his father.
Mr Patel has never had any involvement with terrorism acts.
We are happy to set the record straight and apologise to him.
I wrote about the original disgraceful and clearly libellous article on my own blog here.
