Complainant Name:
Miss Brenda Priedon

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mirror


Miss Brenda Priedon complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article which inaccurately stated that tattoos are cut off before burial in Orthodox Jewish tradition.


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

In our article of 25 July 2011 concerning the death of Amy Winehouse we wrongly stated that Orthodox Jewish tradition dictates that tattoos are cut off a body before burial. In fact, it would be forbidden by Jewish law to remove a tattoo after death.
