Mr Ash Choudry complained to the Press Complaints Commission about an online article which reported on a Facebook campaign urging Saudi men to whip women who planned to defy a ban on women driving. The complainant believed that the Facebook campaign was in fact a hoax.


While the newspaper did not accept that its article was in breach of the Editors' Code, the matter was resolved when it agreed to remove piece from its website.
