Complainant Name:
Ms Audrey Ames, on behalf of her partner Mr Keith Bramble

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: News of the World

Complaint:
Ms Audrey Ames, on behalf of her partner Mr Keith Bramble, complained that an article was inaccurate when it stated that Mr Bramble was “whining” that he was being held in segregation – and was therefore suing under the Human Rights Act – and that he had been imprisoned for 27 years. The complainant explained that Mr Bramble was suing for alleged Human Rights abuses – involving claims of being forced to strip on videotape under duress – and that his sentence was reduced to 20 years upon appeal.

Resolution:
The newspaper amended its records to reflect the fact that the sentence had been reduced on appeal and inserted a note outlining that Mr Bramble was complaining about his treatment under the Human Rights Act rather than being held in segregation.

Report: 68
