Complainant Name:
Mr Giovanni di Stefano

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sunday Times

Complaint:

Mr Giovanni di Stefano of Italy complained that an article was inaccurate in its claim that he was being investigated over allegations that he defrauded some of his clients of £3 million. It also inaccurately suggested that he feared for his life.

Resolution:

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

The story "Saddam lawyer accused of £3m fraud on clients" (News, March 4) reported that Giovanni di Stefano was being investigated over claims that he had defrauded some of his clients of £3m. We have been asked to make clear that Mr di Stefano denies this figure, but accepts that police have received a complaint from a client regarding a dispute over £20,000. Mr di Stefano says he does not feel in fear for his life due to his former clients.

Report: 75
