Complainant Name:
Mr Sharif Hikmat Nashashibi

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Express

Complaint:

Mr Sharif Hikmat Nashashibi, Chairman of Arab Media Watch, complained that a map accompanying a travel piece on Jordan had failed to delineate the West Bank, giving the inaccurate impression that cities such as Jericho were part of Israel.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following letter from the complainant:

Your travel piece, ‘Hidden Treasures of Middle Eastern Gem’ on 24 March, was illustrated by a small map which incorrectly showed the area known as the West Bank as being part of Israel. Since its capture by Israel in 1967, it has been internationally and legally recognised as occupied territory.

Report: 75
