Complainant Name:
Ms Lianne de Mello

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun


Ms Lianne de Mello complained to the Press Complaints Commission that, in an article featuring a number of young people discussing their political views the newspaper had inaccurately attributed quotations to her that she had not said.


The newspaper acknowledged that quotations from a different individual had been mistakenly attributed to the complainant, and the matter was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the article from the newspaper's website and the provision of a personal letter of apology.
