Complainant Name:
Martin McGuinness MP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday World

Complaint:

Martin McGuinness MP complained, through PJ McGrory & Co., that the newspaper inaccurately alleged that he had been on a skiing holiday to Livigno. In fact, he has never skied in his life and has never been to Livigno.

Resolution:

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

"On January 20th last we ran a story headlined "It's Marty on the piste", which claimed that Martin McGuinness, the Deputy First Minister, went skiing in Italy. We have been informed, and accept, that this is not the case. We regret the error."

Report: 77
