Complainant Name:
Mr Leonard Kernott

Clauses Noted: 3

Publication: Daily Mail


Mr Leonard Kernott complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the article, a report on a court case to which he had been a party, had breached Clause 3 (Privacy) of the Editors' Code of Practice. The complainant, who had provided the newspaper with an interview following the judgement in his case, objected to the manner in which the resulting article had portrayed him.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated an undertaking on the part of the newspaper to consider a letter for publication from the complainant.
