Complainant Name:
Fabio Capello

Clauses Noted: 3

Publication: Daily Mail


The England Manager Fabio Capello complained, through the FA, that the newspaper had republished intrusive images of him and his wife on holiday (which had originally appeared in another title). This was despite the fact that he had previously circulated his concerns about the presence of photographers via the PCC and had warned the newspaper of his complaint about earlier publication.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper accepted that internal procedures - warning of Mr Capello's concerns - had failed and that the pictures were published in error. It apologised to the Capellos, gave undertakings for the future, and - at the request of the Capellos - made a substantial donation to the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.
