Complainant Name:
Mr Ismail Balta

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Enfield Advertiser


Mr Ismail Balta complained through Hickman & Rose Solicitors that an article on the conviction of a gang of people smugglers which referred to him contained inaccuracies.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification on the matter, which was also placed in its archives:

Unfortunately as a result of incorrect information supplied to us by police, we published in the Advertiser on October 11 that Ismail Balta, 49, of Cherry Blossom Close, Palmers Green, was convicted for conspiring to smuggle eight illegal immigrants into Britain. He was in fact convicted of smuggling two people. We are happy to clarify the point.

Report: 74
