Complainant Name:
Ms Sharif Nashashibi

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Mr Sharif Nashashibi of Arab Media Watch complained that an article had inaccurately referred to the ‘democratically elected Fatah government’ being ‘wrecked’ by Hamas.

Resolution:

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

Dear Sir, It's incorrect to talk of 'the democratically elected Fatah government' being 'wrecked' by Hamas. Though the democratically elected Palestinian President is a Fatah member, the government in question contained no one from Fatah. It was formed by a Hamas prime minister and approved by the elected parliament consisting predominantly of Hamas MPs. Fatah lost the last parliamentary elections and joined a national unity government only through negotiations with Hamas.

Report: 76
