Complainant Name:
The Aga Khan

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

The Aga Khan complained, through Allen & Overy solicitors, that a diary item contained inaccuracies.

Resolution:

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

"In an item on May 4, I reported that two boats owned by the Aga Khan, including the Destriero, which broke the transatlantic speed record, had been moved from Plymouth to a German boatyard for anticipated multi-million-pound refits. I am now told there are no current plans or contracts for the refit of Destriero and that the other vessel has been decommissioned and no longer exists. I apologise for creating any incorrect impression."

Report: 80
