A man

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Press & Journal (Aberdeen)


A man complained that the newspaper had published a series of articles reporting on his trial for posting false messages on an internet site, but had failed to cover his acquittal.


The newspaper published a follow up article making clear that the complainant had been cleared of all charges and had instructed solicitors to initiate a claim against Northern Constabulary. The editor also wrote to the complainant, apologising that the newspaper had not previously published the outcome of his trial. The complaint was resolved on that basis.
