Bellwood Prestbury on the BBC
23 November 2010
Coral Parfitt, international consultant at Bellwood Prestbury, was invited to join a live debate on the BBC World Service last week.
The programme, ‘World Have your Say’, covered the issue of kidnapping and ransom after the news that the Chandlers, a UK couple held by pirates in Somalia, had finally been released.
Coral joined a prestigious world panel chaired by Nuala McGovern, which included BBC journalists in Somalia, security consultants, and relatives of kidnap and ransom victims.
In an hour-long programme, which also took calls from people with opinions in lots of different countries, Coral explained how kidnap and ransom insurance works. Coral said: “It was exciting being live on the BBC, knowing you are being listened to all over the world. I was glad to be invited and to get some of the facts about kidnap and ransom insurance across.”
