Complainant Name:
Mateusz Kiecz

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Manchester Evening News

Complaint:

Mr Mateusz Kiecz from Doncaster complained to the Press Complaints Commission about an article which reported that Applied Language Solutions had ‘signed a framework agreement with the Ministry of Justice that would see it provide translators and interpreters'. The complainant said that the report was inaccurate as, at the time of publication, no such agreement had been executed.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction:

In an article on July 6, we stated that Applied Language Solutions had ‘signed a framework agreement with the Ministry of Justice that would see it provide translators and interpreters'. In fact, while ALS had won the tender process at the date of publication, the framework agreement was not signed until August 23. We are happy to make this clear.
