Complainant Name:
George Galloway MP

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Times

Complaint:

Mr George Galloway, MP for Bethnal Green and Bow, complained that the newspaper had reported that some of the Mumbai terrorists were British Pakistanis, despite the rejection – on the same day – of any such claims by the British government.

Resolution:

The newspaper pointed out that its front page article had attributed the claim that two of the militants were British Pakistanis to an Indian official, and had included Gordon Brown’s position that there was no evidence to confirm that this was the case. Coverage inside the newspaper had also reiterated there was no evidence at this stage that Britons had taken part. The complainant accepted this explanation as a resolution to his complaint.

Report: 78
