Complainant Name:
A man

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

A man complained about an article which claimed that he was “under investigation” by the General Dental Council. In fact, his ex-wife had written to the GDC and made accusations about his private life which she believed warranted investigation. However, no investigation then ensued.

Resolution:

The newspaper accepted that the description of the complainant as “under investigation” was inaccurate and it wrote to the complainant to apologise. The newspaper also removed the article from its website and undertook not to republish the allegations. The complaint was resolved on that basis.

Report: 77
