Mr James Sanders

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Daily Telegraph


Mr James Sanders complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published incorrect information in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice. The complainant said the newspaper had incorrectly reported that, following a conviction for insider dealing, he was obliged to pay back 1.5 million. He had in fact been ordered to pay 1.06 million.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper expunged the report from all external databases holding the newspaper's material and attached a correction to the article in its own library database.
