Complainant Name:
Mrs Georgina Baidoun

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Metro

Complaint:
Mrs Georgina Baidoun of Milton Keynes complained that a reader’s letter contained inaccurate statistics about the Middle East through its claim that, in 1906, Jews were in a majority in Palestine. In fact, the complainant could point to statistics showing that Jews were in a clear minority at the time – perhaps by as clear a ratio as 91% Arab to 6% Jewish.

Resolution:
The newspaper published a letter correcting the statistical error.

Report: 62
