Complainant Name:
Ms Maureen Moore

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Edinburgh Evening News

Complaint:

Ms Maureen Moore complained that an article had referred to a man named Ryan Moore being held on drugs charges without identifying which Ryan Moore it was. She said that her son, who had the same name, had been abused by people who thought the article was about him.

Resolution:

The newspaper published a follow-up article, after the man had been sentenced, which made clear that he had been in custody since his arrest and could not, therefore, be the complainantís son.

Report: 76
