Lembit Opik MP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sunday Telegraph


Lembit Opik MP complained that an article had inaccurately suggested that he had 'traded in' his former fiancée for his current partner: in fact, his former fiancée had ended their relationship for reasons unrelated to his subsequent relationship.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification:

Lembit Opik MP

Mr Opik has asked us to make clear that contrary to our article (Dont get mad, get married) on 6 January 2008, Sian Lloyd broke off their engagementbefore he started his relationship with Gabriela Irimia.

Report: 77
