Complainant Name:
Mr Lee Cook

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Standard

Complaint:

Mr Lee Cook, Principal Clerk of the Chambers of Timothy Raggatt QC, complained that the newspaper had inaccurately identified him as the victim of murder. The victim was, in fact, a different Lee Cook, who was a clerk in another chambers.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following apology, two days later:

“In early editions on Tuesday, 24 July, we wrongly reported that Mr Cook was employed as a barrister’s clerk by the chambers of Timothy Raggatt QC. Mr Cook was, in fact, at the chambers of Robin Purchas QC. We regret any misunderstanding or distress the error may have caused”.

Report: 75
