Complainant Name:
Mr Peter Pick

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun


Mr Peter Pick complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article published on the website of the Sun was inaccurate in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice. He said that the article had inaccurately reported the relationship between the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated amendments to the online article and the addition of the following footnote to clarify the situation:

An earlier version of this story carried the headline "EU Human Rights laws stop 745 foreign lags from being deported". It should have been "European Court of Human Rights laws stop 745 foreign lags from being deported."
