Complainant Name:
Mr Sacha Gervasi

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Mail on Sunday

Complaint:

Mr Sacha Gervasi complained to the Press Complaints Commission through Swan Turton Solicitors of London that an article which made reference to him contained a number of inaccuracies.

Resolution:

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

On March 28 an article headed ‘The 450m Rothschild heiress and the ex-crack addict scriptwriter . . .' referred to Sacha Gervasi, the award-winning film director, screenwriter and producer. In fact, Mr Gervasi was never addicted to crack cocaine and never had a 200-a-day drug habit. He met Ms Jessica de Rothschild at a stage premiere and not through pitching a film idea to her production company. Their families are not concerned about the relationship. We apologise for any embarrassment caused.
