Complainant Name:
Ms Macarena Parada

Clauses Noted: 1, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12

Publication: Sevenoaks Chronicle


Ms Macarena Parada complained to the Press Complaints Commission about an article which she considered to have breached Clauses 1 (Accuracy), 3 (Privacy), 4 (Harassment), 6 (Children), 9 (Reporting of crime) and 12 (Discrimination) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

The complainant said that, contrary to the claims in the article, it was not the case that she had ‘abducted' her two children. She claimed that she had left Spain during her divorce proceedings in order to ensure their health and well-being, and it was not the case that her ex-husband was unaware of their location. The complainant was also concerned that a photograph of her children had been published.


The PCC was able to negotiate the removal of the article as a gesture of goodwill.
