Complainant Name:
Sarfraz Khan

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Standard

Complaint:

Sarfraz Khan complained to the Press Complaints Commission, via a representative, that the newspaper had published an online court report detailing his conviction for driving a bus under the influence of drugs but had failed to publish an article making clear that he has successfully appealed the decision and was acquitted of any wrongdoing.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper updated the online article with the following statement:

Update (5 Dec 2011): On February 9 Mr Khan was found guilty of driving while unfit and was given a suspended prison sentence and ordered to undertake 100 hours' community work. However, he subsequently launched an appeal, which was allowed, and his conviction was quashed on July 29.
