Mr Leslie Raphael

Clauses Noted: 1

Complaint:

Mr Leslie Raphael of Kilmarnock complained that a panel comparing Zimbabwe with Rhodesia on the 26th anniversary of independence inaccurately stated that Rhodesia had been governed by white minority rule under Prime Minister Smith in 1980.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a correction making clear that the government of Rhodesia had been changed by the Salisbury agreement of March 1978, and that Mr Smith retired as prime minister in June 1979.

Report: 73
