Complainant Name:
Claudia Adusei

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Guardian


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.


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.
