Daily Star Sunday Censured By IPSO

An apology has been issued by the Daily Star Sunday following a story about UK mosques.


The Daily Star published a story which claimed that UK mosques were raising money to fund terror extremists.

The story appeared on page two of the newspaper in November 2015.

IPSO ruled that the story breached the editors code of conduct, and the title was ordered to print an apology.

The story in question appeared in the printed newspaper under the headline "UK mosques give cash for terror".

The story breached clause one of the Editors' Code, which states:

"(i) The press must take care not to publish inaccurate, misleading or distorted information, including pictures.

(ii) A significant inaccuracy, misleading statement or distortion once recognised must be corrected, promptly and with due prominence, and – where appropriate – an apology published.

(iii) The press, whilst free to be partisan, must distinguish clearly between comment, conjecture and fact."

IPSO ruled that the story breached Clause 1 (i) of the code.
