Complainant Name:
Mrs Suzanne Peeples

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday World

Complaint:

Mrs Suzanne Peeples complained that two articles were inaccurate in stating that one of the nominees for her candidature in upcoming elections was a JJ Somerville, a man responsible for a number of killings in the 1970s.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the newspaper, acknowledging that it had been mistaken ran a clarification along the following lines:

JJ Somerville/Suzanne Peeples

This is to clarify that JJ Somerville, jailed for 35 years for the Miami Showband massacre, did not act as a nominee for Suzanne Peeples candidature in the recent Assembly elections.

Report: 75
