Complainant Name:
Mr Euan McIlvride

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Mail

Complaint:

Mr Euan McIlvride complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article originally published in 2008, which remained on the newspaper's website, had inaccurately stated that he had been jailed for three years in 1999.

Resolution:

The newspaper accepted that this was incorrect, and that the criminal conviction to which reference was made in the article had been quashed, on appeal, in 1999. The complaint was resolved when the PCC helped to negotiate the removal of the online article from the newspaper's website. The newspaper apologised to the complainant and also agreed to amend its files accordingly.
