Complainant Name:
Paul Boseley

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Worcester News


Paul Boseley complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had breached Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice, as it had published an article on a trial in 2007 in which it appeared that he was guilty of rape but failed to report on a retrial in which he was found not guilty.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following clarification at the top of the final online story reporting on the 2007 trial:

Since the publication of this article in 2007, Paul Boseley was acquitted following retrial. We are happy to make clear that Mr Boseley was found not guilty of rape and formally discharged on 21 July 2008.
