Complainant Name:
Mr Barry Greig

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Mail

Complaint:
Mr Barry Greig of Fife complained that the newspaper had published an article as if he had given an exclusive interview. In fact, he said, he had spoken to a reporter for a short while and indicated that he did not wish to speak in detail to any newspaper.

Resolution:
The matter was resolved when the newspaper clarified in print that the complainant had not actively sought to tell his story and that he had received no payment for the comments he had made and, indeed, had declined to provide a full interview to any newspaper.

Report: 70
