Complainant Name:
Mr Shahid Malik

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Standard

Complaint:
Mr Shahid Malik, Labour NEC Member of London, complained that a diary piece had suggested that he made an impassioned speech against the war in Iraq at the Brent East Labour Party selection meeting to the surprise of some of those present, who had allegedly not heard him voice such criticism before. In fact, while Iraq did not feature heavily in this particular speech, Mr Malik had previously made clear his objections to the war in the national media.

Resolution:
The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a clarification on these points.

Report: 64
