Complainant Name:
Special Constable Raza Ahmed

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Mail

Complaint:

Special Constable Raza Ahmed complained that an article reporting that he was being investigated over claims he abducted a teenage theft suspect while off duty contained inaccuracies, including the claim that the boy's parents had reported the matter to police. He was also concerned that readers would be misled into believing that he had kidnapped children, although he had not been charged or accused of this matter.

Resolution:

The newspaper sent a private letter to the complainant, acknowledging that the boy's parents had not reported the matter to the police as stated in the article, and apologising for the inaccuracy. The complaint was resolved on that basis.

Report: 80
