The BBC on Wednesday announced the immediate start of an investigation into the events surrounding the interview, led by former senior British judge Lord Dyson.
Spencer questioned the scope of the inquiry, saying Dyson should “be free to examine every aspect of the case from 1995 to the present, as he sees fit.”
