Complainant Name:
Mr Antonios Athinaios

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Mr Antonios Athinaios, owner of Kalypso Apartments in Gouvia, Corfu, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had inaccurately identified his apartments as the site where a British tourist had been seriously injured. In fact the incident had occurred at a different set of apartments in another part of Corfu.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the pictures from the newspaper's website and publication of the following correction and apology online:

We correctly reported on August 19 that a British honeymooner had been injured in an accident at the Kalypso Apartments in Kavos, Corfu. However, in error the article was illustrated with pictures of a different hotel of the same name. We are happy to clarify that the Kalypso Apartments in Gouvia, Corfu, which were pictured had no connection to the incident and apologise for any embarrassment or inconvenience caused.
