Complainant Name:
Hope Animal Sanctuary

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Hope Animal Sanctuary complained, via their Attorney, Mr Lalu Hanuman, to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an online article which inaccurately reported the amount of money raised by the charity at an auction, in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amendment of the online article and the publication of the following correction to the online article:

A previous version of this article stated that $500,000 was raised at the Hope Animal Sanctuary charity event in Barbados. In fact, only $80,000 was raised. We are happy to clarify this.
