Complainant Name:
Mr Badr Jafar

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Mr Badr Jafar complained through Schillings solicitors that (1) information published regarding his home in an article intruded into his privacy; and (2) the article was inaccurate when it stated that he was a “prince” from “Dubai”. The newspaper named Mr Jafar and published the area in which his property is situated together with a clear photograph of the property itself. Mr Jafar contended that this was a breach of his privacy pursuant to Clause 3 of the PCC Code and was also a security concern. The same article also incorrectly stated that Mr Jafar is a prince from Dubai, when in fact he is neither.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper agreed to place a note correcting its internal records and gave an assurance as to future publication of the matters complained of.

Report: 73
