In an exclusive interview with ITV News, Mr Sinka claimed the hype surrounding the story was the work of the worst of the British press.

Mr Sinka said, "This is also why we have been avoiding making any comments, because we see that we can say anything but it will be twisted and turned back on us regardless of what we meant."
