Complainant Name:
Mr Leslie Raphael

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Times


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.


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
