Complainant Name:
Paul Hancock

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Banbury Guardian

Complaint:
Paul Hancock from Daventry complained that an article was misleading in reporting that he was to face charges in relation to involvement in a money laundering and drugs ring without making clear the nature of the specific charge against him. In addition, the newspaper had failed to report that he had subsequently been cleared by the court of any involvement.

Resolution:
The newspaper published a follow-up article making clear that the complainant, who had denied the charge against him (conspiracy to launder money), had been cleared by the court of any involvement in the alleged drugs ring.

Report: 66
