Complainant Name:
A man

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: Irish News

Complaint:

A man complained, via Sullivans Solicitors & Advocates, that the newspaper reported that his home was owned by a UDA leader when this was not the case.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification with due prominence:

Our coverage on May 13 of legal proceedings involving Andre Shoukri accurately reported that a house at Clare Heights, in Belfast, which was purchased illegally by Mr Shoukri, had been seized as part of the criminal recovery process. We have been asked to make clear that the new owner of the property has no connections with Mr Shoukri.

Report: 80
