Mr Shoaib Khan

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sunday Telegraph


Mr Shoaib Khan complained to the Press Complaints Commission, under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice, that the newspaper had published inaccurate information regarding the availability of legal aid for appeals against deportation.


The complaint was resolved after the PCC negotiated the publication of the following clarification:

Further to "Human rights allow foreign criminals to stay" (Jun 8), we wish to make clear that legal aid for appeals against deportation solely on the ground of an offender's right to family life was restricted from April 2013 to cases of exceptional circumstances.
