Complainant Name:
Mrs Caroline Panesar

Clauses Noted: 4

Publication: The Mail on Sunday

Complaint:

Mrs Caroline Panesar complained to the Press Complaints Commission that her family had been receiving a number of contacts from journalists, which they found very intrusive. Accordingly the PCC had circulated a desist request on behalf of the family, which made clear that they would not be speaking to the press and did not wish to be approached.

Mrs Panesar complained that a further approach by a journalist, after the circulation of the desist request, had breached the terms of Clause 4 (Harassment) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper wrote privately to the complainant.
