Complainant Name:
Mrs Janie Jenkins

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Chat

Complaint:

Mrs Janie Jenkins – a close friend of Anita Ings’ family – complained on their behalf that the story Steve Ings told the magazine about the murder of Anita, and their son Gavin, was an inaccurate representation of the true circumstances.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the magazine agreed to publish a letter from the complainant and the family of Anita Ings with the following wording: We wish to express how strongly my family and our close friend Janie feel about a story published in Chat magazine issue 11 dated 23 March 2006 headlined Shattered. We would like to point out that the story you printed was one person's view of a terrible tragedy and is not the view shared by we, Anita Ings family, or our close friend Janie. We wish to be allowed to grieve in private & put closure on this terrible event.

Report: 73
