Complainant Name:
Mr Sammy Wilson MP MLA

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Belfast Telegraph

Complaint:

Mr Sammy Wilson MP MLA complained to the Press Complaints Commission about an article which inaccurately claimed that he had rejected plans for an MTV awards party at the Stormont Estate.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following apology:

On October 24, 2011 we reported that Sammy Wilson, the Northern Ireland Minister for Finance and Personnel, rejected a request from the organisers of the MTV European Music Awards to hold a post-show party in the Stormont Estate. This was incorrect. Mr Wilson was not involved. We apologise for the error and are happy to clarify the matter.
