Complainant Name:
Miss B N K Pillai

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Pinner Observer


Miss B N K Pillai complained that the newspaper had been inaccurate in reporting the circumstances of two incidents in which children had been injured by her dog.


The complaint was considered to be resolved as the newspaper had published a follow-up article detailing the complainantís account of the two incidents: that the first child had received an accidental scratch caused by the dogís playful behaviour; that the second child had been provoking the dog and had received only a single puncture wound from the dogís bite; and that, by the time of the second incident, her dog was elderly, ill and physically impaired.

Report: 78
