Complainant Name:
Mr Mike Ashley and Mr Derek Llambias

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Mail on Sunday

Complaint:

Mr Mike Ashley and Mr Derek Llambias complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had inaccurately claimed that they both had a close business relationship with property developer Kevin Cash. Whilst the newspaper had removed the online reference and had offered to publish an online correction, it had declined to publish a print correction on the matter.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following statement:

Our article of March 28 stated that Kevin Cash was closely linked in business with the businessmen Mike Ashley and Derek Llambias. In fact, neither Mr Ashley nor Mr Llambias has any business link with Mr Cash and say, to the best of their knowledge, they have never met him.
