Complainant Name:
Sian Morgan

Clauses Noted: 1, 5

Publication: Loaded

Complaint:

Sian Morgan, a friend of Meredith Kercher, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the magazine had published an inaccurate and insensitive article that referred to Amanda Knox as a one of "20 things that turn us on".

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the magazine explained that the piece accurately described the charges faced by Ms Knox - a position the complainant accepted - and published an apology on its letters page in the following terms:

"In the December 2009 issue of loaded, in an article headlined '20 Things That Turn Us On (That Probably Shouldn't)' we said that we were somewhat aroused by Amanda Knox aka ‘Foxy Knoxy'. We now admit that the article could have caused distress to her victim's relatives, for which we apologize unreservedly."
