As per the Financial Times, Ofcom is currently investigating CGTN over a complaint filed by a British citizen who accused the channel of broadcasting a confession made under duress.
A second complaint was made by a UK-based person who similarly accused CGTN of airing a forced confession made by her father.
It is believed that Pollard will head up the channel’s new European HQ in Chiswick Park, West London, in an effort to help it avoid losing its UK licence.
Ofcom stated that the hiring of Pollard will not affect the investigation.
