Complainant Name:
Mr Harish Pattni

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Ealing & Acton Gazette

Complaint:

Mr Harish Pattni complained through his solicitors that references in an article to his links to Pattiden Surveyors Ltd could have misled readers into believing that he was currently employed by them, which was not the case.

Resolution:

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

‘A recent article (‘Double standards?’ – 9 February 2007) reported that Harish Pattni, a senior official at Ealing Homes, was being investigated over a possible conflict of interest due to his links with Pattiden Surveyors Ltd. We have been asked to make clear that Mr Pattni is currently not employed by Pattiden Surveyors Ltd in any capacity, either as Director or Secretary. We are happy to clarify the position.’

Report: 75
