Nasrollah Mansouri

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Birmingham Mail

Complaint:

Nasrollah Mansouri complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had wrongly identified his business as belonging to a man who had been convicted for dealing drugs in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code.

Resolution:

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

Nasrollah Mansouri

In our article of 9 December 2011 "Pizza Boss loses 60k drug cash" we stated that Sajah Ahmed Shah, who had been convicted of drug dealing ran Caspian Pizza in Sparkhill. We have been asked to point out by the owner of the only Caspian Pizza franchise in Sparkhill, that Mr Shah has no association in any way with that establishment. We apologise for any confusion.
