Hacking: Met Use Official Secrets Act To Demand Guardian Reveals Sources

Recommended Posts

http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2011/sep/16/phone-hacking-met-court-order

The Metropolitan police are seeking a court order under the Official Secrets Act to make Guardian reporters disclose their confidential sources about the phone-hacking scandal.

In an unprecedented legal attack on journalists' sources, Scotland Yard officers claim the act, which has special powers usually aimed at espionage, could have been breached in July when reporters Amelia Hill and Nick Davies revealed the hacking of Milly Dowler's phone. They are demanding source information be handed over.

The Guardian's editor, Alan Rusbridger, said on Friday: "We shall resist this extraordinary demand to the utmost".

Tom Watson, the former Labour minister who has been prominent in exposing hacking by the News of the World, said: "It is an outrageous abuse and completely unacceptable that, having failed to investigate serious wrongdoing at the News of the World for more than a decade, the police should now be trying to move against the Guardian. It was the Guardian who first exposed this scandal."

An excellent use of public money and the Official Secrets Act, lets keep information suppressed to stop embarrassment.

The Police don't believe that the public has any right to know how their money is spent. Operation Bohan against Ian Puddick www.policeexpenses.co.uk reputedly cost over 1 million, to investigate and prosecute a plumber for a website revealing wrongdoing by a senior boardmember of a reinsurance firm in the City.

City of London Police lost the case but refused to answer a question from Parliament asking to justfy the cost and give a breakdown.

Fortunately, Puddick isn't going to let it rest.
