Complainant Name:
Claudia Adusei

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Independent


Claudia Adusei complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published three articles (one in print and two online) that wrongly named her as a woman who had died after travelling to America for cosmetic surgery.


The newspaper accepted that its coverage was erroneous. The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amendment of the online articles and publication of the following correction and apology in the newspaper and online:

Claudia Adusei/Aderotimi

On 10 February, we reported from a news agency source that Claudia Adusei, 20, from London, died after buttock enhancement treatment in Philadelphia. The agency had been misinformed that the girl was Claudia Adusei, when it was, in fact, Claudia Aderotimi who died. We apologise for any distress caused to the families concerned.
