Complainant Name:
Mrs Christine Ryder

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Love It!


Mrs Christine Ryder of Kent complained that points in a ‘real life’ story which described how she had hired a hit man to kill her required further clarification.


The complaint was resolved when the magazine agreed not to republish or syndicate the article. The magazine published a letter from the complainant which clarified the points under dispute. The wording for this read as follows: I would like to clarify some points in the article about me entitled ‘I hired a hit man to kill me!’ (7-13 March): I suffer from OCD as well as depression, which I have had since I was a teenager; my daughter is 30, not 20, and I did not ring her and say ‘I’m so angry he didn’t kill me’; there was no time arranged for me to walk down the street, nor did I meet at the Church pictured to discuss the hit. As the article said, I no longer have a death wish but I still find living my life difficult.
