Tony Catney

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Life


Tony Catney complained to the Press Complaints Commission via Kevin R. Winters & Co. solicitors that the newspaper had published an article containing quotes that were falsely attributed to him.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following clarification in the newspaper:

We published an article in our 18 July 2010 edition that reported comments allegedly made by Tony Catney on behalf of the Republican network for Unity. Mr Catney has asked us to make clear that he did not authorise the comments attributed to him in the article and nor did he speak to a journalist on this occasion. The comments were provided by a RNU spokesperson but, at the time of publication, Mr Catney had departed the RNU.
