A man

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Alloa Advertiser


A man complained to the Press Complaints Commission about the publication of three articles which had, in his view, breached Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

The articles reported on allegations which the complainant had faced, relating to his conduct as a police officer. It was the complainant's position that the articles had presented these allegations as having been proved, when this was not the case.


While the newspapers did not accept the complainant's position, the PCC was able to negotiate the removal of the online articles as a resolution to the complaint.
