Broadcaster Alan Jones ordered to pay $10,000 for racial vilification
by Stephanie Gardiner
Broadcaster Alan Jones has been ordered to pay Muslim community leader Keysar Trad $10,000, ending a nine year battle over a radio segment found to have "stimulated listeners to hatred" of Lebanese men.
The Civil and Administrative Tribunal found comments broadcast on 2GB in April 2005 "portrayed Lebanese males as criminals and ... as posing a threat to the Australian community".
The tribunal found Mr Trad's complaint of racial vilification over the comments, which Jones described as being a letter from a listener, was substantiated.
