Complainant Name:
Mr Bedwyr Griffiths

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Wales Online

Complaint:

Mr Bedwyr Griffiths complained to the Press Complaints Commission about an article which was, in his view, inaccurate and misleading in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

The article reported on a number of allegations which had been made online, by parents who claimed that their children had been ‘punished for speaking English'.

According to the complainant, the claims in question were unsubstantiated and he objected to their being publicised by the newspaper.

Resolution:

While the newspaper was not of the view that its article was inaccurate, the complaint was resolved after the publication of a follow up article.
