Complainant Name:
Gregory Jananto

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun


Gregory Jananto complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had inaccurately reported that an altercation at his workplace resulted in him attempting to strangle a colleague. The complainant explained that there had been a heated verbal exchange but no physical assault.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following correction both online and in print:

Gregory Jananto

Our December 6 article headlined ‘Chindamo pal mauls workmate' wrongly stated Gregory Jananto tried to strangle a colleague at Searcy's bar in St Pancras Station, London. While strong words were exchanged, it has been pointed out to us there was no physical attack. We are happy to make this clear.
