Complainant Name:
Mr Craig Pearson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Sun


Mr Craig Pearson complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article which discussed his childhood friendship with Chelsea FC manager, Andre Villas-Boas, attributed to him a number of quotes which he denied having said. He was also concerned that the article suggested that he had spoken directly to the newspaper, when this was not the case.


While the newspaper did not accept the inaccuracy of any of its quotes, the matter was resolved when, as a result of PCC mediation, it agreed to make an internal record of the complainant's concerns.
