Complainant Name:
Mr Ismail Balta

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Londra Gazete (London Turkish Gazette)


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 which made clear that the information upon which the article was based had been provided by the Metropolitan Police offered to publish a clarification on the matter. The complainant considered the wording to be suitable but did not wish for this to be published. The text was therefore appended to the newspapers internal records for future reference.

Report: 74
