Press getting worked up about this issue as the Leveson inquiry has concentrated on their invasions of privacy. It is turning out that SOCA knew about other companies in the commercial world doing exactly the same thing. They don’t want to tell M.Ps too much about it. Wonder if they discussed it with the Director of Public Prosecutions?
Repeat after me: “you have nothing to fear if you are innocent”. Complete abuse of power by police officers, preventing a young woman from getting a job as a result of them harassing her and putting their harassment on the databases such that she turns up as a problem on a CRB check…and they STILL havent removed stuff from the necessary databases, despite admitting disciplining the oficers and apologising. Full story was in Private Eye. Smears followed in other parts of the press.
