Complainant Name:
Mr Vincent Antia

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Mail on Sunday

Complaint:

Mr Vincent Antia complained that the newspaper had inaccurately claimed that he and his wife were in the process of getting divorced at the time of her arrest for adultery. The newspaper also published a quotation from a woman referred to as "Mrs Antia's solicitor", but who had not been instructed by his wife.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper - which was willing to publish an apology - removed the article and circulated a warning that the information was not to be republished.

Report: 79
