Complainant Name:
A man

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Standard

Complaint:

A man complained that an article had misleadingly reported the allegations made against him in court.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper annotated its records to reflect that he was found not guilty of conspiracy to supply class A drugs and was not married to Nikki Granville.

The newspaper also annotated its records to reflect that the complainant denied the following: that he was involved in a drugs gang; that the date of the meeting with ‘Macca’ was 14 July; that he and his brother were investigated by the Fraud squad after their company Landhurst went bust; that he had been disinherited; that his children were unplanned; that he raided his daughter’s piggy bank; that he had a close friend called Johnny Billing; and that he set up an advertising business which was then declared bankrupt.

Report: 74
