Complainant Name:
Mr Robert Bucknor

Clauses Noted: 1, 2

Publication: Kent & Sussex Courier

Complaint:
Mr Robert Bucknor of Tonbridge, resident trustee of Hadlow Tower, complained that an article had inaccurately reported a dispute concerning the tower and its trust Tower International Foundation (UK) Limited, mistakenly claiming that the trust was a charity and had been dissolved by the tower’s owner. He also objected to the fact that the article only included the perspective of the owner himself.

Resolution:
The newspaper published a letter from the complainant – in which he outlined his position, making clear that the trust could not be dissolved by one man – and a follow-up article in which the matter was further clarified.

Report: 62
