QC wins press ruling


A QC has won a ruling against a tabloid newspaper that suggested she ‘buried evidence’ during a Crown Court fraud trial. Sasha Wass QC of 6KBW College Hill Chambers was acting for the Crown Prosecution Service in a case involving a lawyer convicted of money laundering offences. The Mail on Sunday offered to clarify the position but the Independent Press Standards Organisation ruled that the newspaper had taken five months to publish a clarification that itself was not complete.
