The Guardian reportsTwo national newspapers paid to receive confidential information from the police national computer which makes it sound like the newspapers are what we should be worrying about, rather than the security of our data. But if newspapers are getting secret police material, who else is? Riel Karmy-Jones, prosecuting, told Blackfriars crown court in central London that Mr Whittamore [an investigator] had received the information “through a chain” made up of the three other defendants: the private investigator John Boyall, 52; Alan King, a 59-year-old retired police officer; and Paul Marshall, 39, a former civilian communications officer who was based at Tooting police station in London. There’ll be much more information on everyone of the NIR than on current police computers. And many more people would have access.
