Complainant Name:
Mr Gary Waugh

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Times

Complaint:

Mr Gary Waugh complained through his solicitors Knight Polson that an article contained a number of inaccuracies, the most significant of which was the claim that Ali Dahir had been forced by the complainant to take credit cards. In fact, the complainant contended that it had not been part of the Crown’s case that he had been involved in the threats on Mr Dahir.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following statement: 'Our report (Jail for postman forced by gun gang to steal 100 credit cards, June 13) wrongly stated that Swindon Crown Court was told that the postman, Ali Dahir, was forced to take the credit cards by his co-defendant, Gary Waugh. In fact, the Crown’s counsel accepted that it was not Gary Waugh who had threatened Mr Dahir'.

Report: 73
