IPSO Rejects Complaint Against Mail On Sunday

The Mail on Sunday did not breach the privacy of Nigel Farage, rules IPSO.

IPSO (the Independent Press Standards Organisation) rejected a privacy complaint against the Mail on Sunday which centred around UKIP leader Nigel Farage.

The Mail on Sunday had reported that Nigel Farage had been questioned by the police.

The complaint was brought against the newspaper by Adam Richardson, who claimed he was acting on behalf of Nigel Farage.

Richardson complained to IPSO under clause three (privacy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

The article in question was published on 21st June 2015, and was entitled "Police quiz Farage over claims 'ex-lover' falsely accused Tory MP of sexually assaulting her".

IPSO stated that the complaint called the article "by its nature, confidential and private".


However, IPSO said that the “fact that Mr Farage had been interviewed by police was not in itself private information” and that it “recognises that there is a public interest in the reporting of police investigations”.

IPSO went on to state that: “Although details of an individual’s demeanour and conduct during a police interview are potentially sensitive in nature, the limited details published by the newspaper in this instance were not intrusive. The article had also contained no suggestion that Mr Farage had done anything wrong. Nor had it disclosed any of the information given during the interview. The complaint under Clause 3 was not upheld.”
