Complainant Name:
Claudia Adusei

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Guardian

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 apologised for the error. The complaint was resolved when the newspaper amended the online article appropriately and appended the following footnote:

This article was amended on 9 March 2011. The original wrongly identified the young woman who died. The Guardian's own later version of the story correctly named her as Claudia Aderotimi.
