Complainant Name:
A couple

Clauses Noted: 1

Complaint:

A married couple complained that the newspaper had published photographs of their house to accompany stories about raids on drug dealers. This was misleading, as the husband had been found guilty of being in possession of cannabis for personal use, and not of drug dealing.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper undertook not to use the photographs of the complainantsí house to illustrate general stories about drugs.

Report: 77
