@Independent_ie #journalismethics #journalism I'd like an explanation as to why this article http://www.independent.ie/irish-news/brothel-keeper-fined-1150-26093404.html says Justine Reilly was fined 1150 pounds for running brothels but these articles say that Justine Reilly was fined 11500 pounds.



The equivalent Irish Times reported that Justine Reilly was fined 11500 pounds, not 1150 pounds


Justine Reilly was fined 11500 pounds for brothel keeping on March 3rd 2001.

Your frankly bizarre article for a news event 13 years ago doesn't even make the date of Justine Reilly's conviction for brothel keeping clear. Also bizarre is the fact that it was lately edited on November 24th 2012 which happened to coincide with Justine Reilly's imminent appearance before the Joint Oireachtas Justice Committee as a survivor of prostitution on February 6th 2013. Are you willing to explain this violation of journalism and this assault on democracy?
