Complainant Name:
Mahendra Dhoju

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Standard


Mahendra Dhoju complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had inaccurately reported that he had won a £17,000 payout following a breach of health and safety regulations by his employer.


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

Mahendra Dhoju

Our report on 20 September reported that Mahendra Dhoju won a settlement of £17,000 from his employer who was found to have breached health and safety laws. In fact, the £17,000 figure was a fine paid following proceedings brought by Richmond County Council and Mr Dhoju's compensation claim is ongoing. We are happy to correct this.
