Complainant Name:
Arab Media Watch

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Mr Sharif Hikmat Nashashibi, Chairman of Arab Media Watch, complained that an article had failed to distinguish conjecture from fact in its claim that Syria had ordered the assassination of Lebanese Industry Minister Pierre Gemayel.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a letter from the complainant indicating that there was, as yet, no evidence for the claim that Syria had ordered the assassination of Pierre Gemayel. The letter also set out the complainants view that jumping to conclusions on matters such as this would only aggravate an already volatile situation.

Report: 74
