Life BBC shows itself in the Cliff Richard case By weekster Posted on September 6, 2019 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ The long-running case between Cliff Richard (78) and the BBC is finally over. The two parties have reached a settlement whereby the British broadcaster transfers a total amount of around 2 million pounds (2.2 million euros) to the singer as compensation for the legal costs he incurred. The singer won last summer the lawsuit that he had filed against the BBC. The judge agreed with him that the broadcaster had violated his privacy by broadcasting live images of a police raid in his house in 2014. The judge also ruled that the BBC had to pay him more than 235,000 euros and the singer also received another 956,000 euros as compensation for legal expenses. However, those expenses had risen in the meantime, after which Cliff demanded more money. The BBC has now responded to this and established an arrangement with the 78-year-old singer. Cliff Richard was accused of child abuse in 2014. No case followed because insufficient evidence was found. In June 2016, it was announced that he was not being prosecuted.
