Complainant Name:
Harry Cichy

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Romford Recorder


Harry Cichy complained that the newspaper had referred to Tony Bennett as a "solicitor" when he was, in fact, retired and had not been in possession of a solicitors practising certificate for a number of years and, thus, was not qualified to act as a solicitor.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a clarification in the following terms:

Tony Bennett

In articles which appeared in the Recorder on October 10 2008; June 19 2009; August 14 2009 and September 4 2009 regarding the death of Lee Balkwell, we mistakenly referred to Tony Bennett as a solicitor. Mr Bennett is in fact a retired solicitor and is involved only as Mr Les Balkwell's representative.
