Complainant Name:
Mr Kenneth Basquil

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Reading Evening Post

Complaint:

Mr Kenneth Basquil complained to the Press Complaints Commission under Clause 1 (Accuracy) about the newspaper's coverage of his trial following allegations of sexual assault. The complainant was concerned that, despite his having been acquitted of all charges (a verdict reported by the newspaper), the earlier articles remained online.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the PCC negotiated the addition of links to the articles, which directed readers to the report detailing the jury's ‘not guilty' verdict.
