Australia’s government and opposition refused to apologise to an Indian doctor wrongly charged over a British terrorist plot, as his lawyers said they would seek substantial compensation. Doctor Mohamed Haneef has demanded an apology for being mistakenly arrested, detained and charged over a failed July 2007 plot to detonate bombs in London and Glasgow, while his lawyers say he will seek compensation for his ordeal. An official report found that Australian authorities wrongfully arrested and held Dr. Haneef, now working in the Middle East, as they ignored evidence and botched the high-profile investigation.
