Complainant Name:
Claudia Adusei

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mirror

Complaint:

Claudia Adusei complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an online article which erroneously named her as a woman who had died after travelling to America for cosmetic surgery.

Resolution:

The newspaper accepted that it had wrongly identified the complainant as the victim of the negligent operation in an early report of the death that was based on a news agency feed. It explained that further articles gave the correct name to the victim. The complaint was resolved when the newspaper apologised to the complainant in correspondence and amended the online article appropriately.
