Complainant Name:
Ms Anjana Patel

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Mail on Sunday

Complaint:

Ms Anjana Patel complained to the Press Complaints Commission under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice about an article reporting that Conservative fundraiser, Rickie Sehgal, had been discovered attempting to sell access to the Prime Minister, David Cameron. The complainant's concern related to a photograph in which she was inaccurately referred to as Mr Sehgal's wife. She said she had suffered great embarrassment and distress as a result of this inaccuracy.

Resolution:

While the newspaper had published an apology prior to the complainant contacting the PCC, the matter was resolved when, in addition, it agreed to pay a contribution to the complainant's legal expenses.
