Complainant Name:
Ms Mojgan Khayatian

Clauses Noted: 1, 3, 5

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Ms Mojgan Khayatian complained to the Press Complaints Commission through solicitors about an article which she considered to have been inaccurate and intrusive in breach of Clauses 1 (Accuracy), 3 (Privacy) and 5 (Intrusion into grief or shock) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

The complainant was the sister of a man who was reported to have been ‘burned to death in a suspected vigilante attack'. She was concerned that the article suggested her deceased brother was guilty of criminal behaviour when he was, in fact, innocent.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the online article, and a letter of regret from the newspaper.
