Chapter director looses libel action appeal     

The libel action by Chapter Arts Centre director Janek Alexander against the Arts Council of Wales has been dismissed by the Court of Appeal. The case, which concerned press statements made by the quango and its former chief executive Joanna Weston, was initially dismissed by a High Court judge nine days into a jury trial last summer. The Court of Appeal this week upheld the ruling that the ACW, as a public body, has immunity from the prosecution.
