Mr JJ Somerville complained that two articles were inaccurate in stating that he had acted as nominee for the candidature of Mrs Suzanne Peeples in upcoming elections.


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 Peeplesí candidature in the recent Assembly elections.

Report: 75
