Complainant Name:
Mr Jason Johnson

Clauses Noted: 3, 12

Publication: The Sun


Mr Jason Johnson, a postman for Royal Mail, complained through the Communication Workers Union that an article which focused on his disability intruded into his privacy and discriminated against him in breach of the Code.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following apology: On March 15 we published an article about a postman Jason Johnson who has difficulty reading numbers. We have been asked to point out, and accept, that Mr Johnson, of Blackheath, South East London , has no difficulties performing his job and we were wrong to highlight his disability. The Sun apologises to him for the distress our article caused.

Report: 73
