Complaint:

Mr Adam Walker, a BNP candidate in the May 2009 European elections, complained that an article – headlined “Lumley: BNP sickos slur hero Gurkha” – had made reference to a BNP election leaflet against Gurkha immigration which had not been issued by the party.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification:

We have been asked to make clear by Adam Walker, a British National Party candidate in the recent European elections, that an election leaflet criticising the rights of Gurkhas to stay in the UK and featuring Corporal Kumar Pun, recently killed in action, was not published by Mr Walker or issued by his party as we stated on May 18.

Report: 79
