Complainant Name:
Mrs Fiamma Restivo

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Echo (Bournemouth)


Mrs Fiamma Restivo of Bournemouth complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had misquoted her and had wrongly stated that her husband had served a prison sentence in Italy.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper offered to publish the following statement:

In an article in the Daily Echo on October 27 2009 we reported that Mr Daniel Restivo, of Chatsworth Road, Bournemouth, had served a prison sentence of two years and eight months in Italy for perjury. We have been asked to specify that Mr Restivo received a sentence of two years and eight months' probation for perjury which was reduced to two years and two months because he had already served five months 28 days in custody awaiting trial.
