Complainant Name:
Jim Allan

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Scottish Sun


Jim Allan complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published a court report detailing his mother's conviction for fraud which contained a number of inaccuracies.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following correction in the newspaper:

Jim Allan

In a June 24 report on Margaret Logan's conviction for fraud we referred to her son as ‘Alan' and his ‘girlfriend'. In fact, Mrs Logan's son's name is Jim Allan, and he has a male partner. We are also happy to clarify that two wills on Mr Allan's computer did not include the names of his mum or her dead ex-husband.
