Complainant Name:
Mr Luis Tobenas

Clauses Noted: 1, 3, 9

Publication: The Mail on Sunday

Complaint:

Mr Luis Tobenas complained to the Press Complaints Commission, under Clause 1 (Accuracy), Clause 3 (Privacy) and Clause 9 (Reporting of Crime) of the Editors' Code of Practice, that the newspaper had published a photograph which featured him and other former pupils with Reyaad Khan, a British man who has become an Islamist fighter in Syria.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated a private letter of apology to the complaint, and the newspaper obscured the faces of the pupils in the online version of the article.
