Complainant Name:
Mr Rohan Agalawatta

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Mr Rohan Agalawatta complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article which reported comedians' favourite jokes from the Edinburgh Fringe had inaccurately attributed a joke to him, in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.


The complaint was resolved after the PCC negotiated the amendment of the article online, to attribute the joke to the comedian who had in fact supplied it.
