Complainant Name:
Miss Tabitha Lasley

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Miss Tabitha Lasley complained that the newspaper had incorrectly claimed to have "tracked down" Monika Pon in South Africa. In fact, Marie Claire South Africa had located her and had sent the complainant to interview Ms Pon two months previous to the Daily Mail's article. The newspaper had based the article on the piece which appeared in Marie Claire.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper added the following sentence to the online article:

"Following an interview with Tabitha Lasley in Marie Claire magazine, the true story behind the world's most reproduced painting was revealed"
