Complainant Name:
Mr Norman Parkes

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Guardian

Complaint:

Mr Norman Parkes complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper implied that a "mohel" was a medical expert. He considered that a third party such as the "mohel", whose references had not been clearly stated, should not offer advice in regard to circumcision.

Resolution:

The complainant was satisfied that the newspaper's response, which said that the article made clear that the "mohel" was a religious official and not a medical professional, resolved the matter.
