Complainant Name:
Ms Heather Ewens

Clauses Noted: 6

Publication: Take A Break

Complaint:

Ms Heather Ewens of Co Antrim complained that the magazine had published a photograph of her nine-year old daughter on holiday in Turkey to accompany an article about Turkish bar boys and Western women. Although her face had been pixelated, the complainant’s daughter had been recognised by those who knew that she had been on holiday to Gumbet. The complainant was very concerned that her daughter – who had been enjoying herself on the last night of the holiday – had been pictured in this context. She argued that Clause 6 (Children) of the Code had been breached.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the magazine undertook not to republish the photograph.

Report: 77
