Complainant Name:
Dr Mark Bailey

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Irish News

Complaint:

Dr Mark Bailey complained to the Press Complaints Commission on behalf of the Green Party of Northern Ireland. It was the complainant's position that the newspaper had published an article that was inaccurate and misleading, in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

The article was a comment piece about the Green Party, and the complainant objected to the claim that ‘two councillors left the party, one to join the SDLP and the other to join Sinn Fein'.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of a letter from the complainant.
