Complainant Name:
Mr Joe O'Donnell

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday World


Mr Joe ODonnell complained through solicitors Kevin R. Winters that the newspaper had inaccurately stated that he was a director of Stealth Security, a security firm linked to a suspect in the Robert McCartney murder.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification:

Joe ODonnell

On July 16th 2006 in an article headed Marketing Themselves As Saviours we stated that Joe ODonnell, the former Deputy Mayor and Sinn Fein Belfast City Councillor, was a director of security company called Stealth Security. We now acknowledge that this assertion was untrue. We are happy to correct the error.

Report: 74
