Complainant Name:
A man

Clauses Noted: 5

Publication: Hamilton Advertiser


A man complained that two articles reporting on the death of his brother had contained intrusive detail and caused the family more pain in an already difficult time. Moreover, the second article had included photographs of the distraught family leaving the church after the funeral.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper sent a private letter of apology to the complainant, indicating that the complainants thoughts would be taken into account when reporting on similar tragedies in the future.

Report: 73
