Complainant Name:
The former Sonia Sutcliffe

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The People

Complaint:
The former Sonia Sutcliffe complained that two articles were inaccurate in suggesting that her ex-husband, Peter Sutcliffe, had asked her to remarry him. She said one of the articles was wrong in its claim that she had persuaded Peter Sutcliffe to end a hunger strike.

Resolution:
The newspaper published a statement which read as follows: “The former Sonia Sutcliffe denies that Peter Sutcliffe has asked her to remarry him. She further denies that she persuaded her former husband to end a hunger strike. We are happy to clarify these matters. [p.6/7 August 14 2005, p.29, Sept 18 2005]”

Report: 72
