Complainant Name:

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Express

Complaint:

Ms Annika Thunborg, Spokesperson of the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO), complained that the newspaper had inaccurately reported that a member of the CTBTO's staff, whose death was under investigation, was connected to talks about Iran hosted by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). In fact, the individual in question was a processing engineer who had no role whatsoever in the Iran negotiations held by the IAEA.

Resolution:

The newspaper accepted that the report was erroneous. It removed the article from its website, marked its internal cuttings with a warning about the inaccuracy and circulated a similar warning to its journalists.
