Complainant Name:
Ms Rachel Gotto

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Diver

Complaint:
Ms Rachel Gotto complained that a report of the inquest into her husband’s death while diving was inaccurate on a number of points. In particular, she objected to the article’s unproven suggestions as to the cause of her husband’s death – especially given that the inquest returned an open verdict – and the fact that it had been written with considerable involvement of the manufacturer of her husband’s equipment – who had a vested interest in the ascription of responsibility for the accident.

Resolution:
The newspaper undertook to publish a 600-word letter from the complainant.

Report: 62
