Complainant Name:
Siencyn Langham

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: Cambrian News


Siencyn Langham complained that an article about his fathers conviction inaccurately claimed that his father had lived in Aberystwyth, and intruded into his own privacy by publishing his place of residence. He raised concerns that this could have led to harassment.


The newspaper made the point that the complainants place of residence was stated in open court. However, the newspaper published a retraction making clear that the complainants father had never lived in Aberystwyth. The complaint was resolved on that basis.

Report: 76
