Trouw is not in the wrong with the story in which presenter Jelle Brandt Corstius says that he sexually abused. That the Council for Journalism on Monday ruled.
The newspaper was the one that would have done, old colleague Gijs van Dam, do not approach them for a comment. He was not recognisable in the story.
Trouw also published the story at the end of October. The man who Brandt Corstius would have abused, producer Gijs van Dam, stepped thereon to the Council for Journalism. That judge, however, now that Faith carefully enough.
Be more careful
However, the Council felt that the newspaper a bit more should have been in the beginning of the story. It says that the sentence: “Also a journalist Jelle Brandt Corstius is a victim.” Thus presenting the newspaper to his assertion as a fact.
Brandt Corstius did his story when there was a lot of separation in the context of #MeToo, about inappropriate sexual behaviour.
