Cork Cannabis Activist Network appealed the Press Ombudsman’s decision to the Press Council of Ireland on the grounds that the Press Ombudsman had erred in his application of the Code of Practice. In its appeal the Network highlighted evidence previously submitted as part of its complaint, and submitted further evidence to support its belief that the statements complained about were factually incorrect.
