Complainant Name:
Mr Mal Reston

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Liverpool Daily Post

Complaint:

Mr Mal Reston, Chief Executive of the Wirral Multicultural Organisation, complained that an article reporting that Dr Vijay Dwivedi had been barred from sitting on Mental Health Tribunals had inaccurately stated that he was a director of the WMO.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a clarification as part of its Trust the Post column making clear that Dr Dwivedi had stepped down from this post in 1996. The newspaper also amended the online version of the article, and wrote a letter of apology to the complainant.

Report: 78
