Complainant Name:
Mr James Sanders

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Daily Telegraph

Complaint:

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.

Resolution:

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.
