Unlawful internal disclosure of personal photographs
01 February 2011
We acted in a breach of confidence and misuse of private information case on behalf of an officer whose personal photographs from her mobile phone were unlawfully disclosed in breach of confidence and misuse of her private information. The officer had volunteered her mobile phone to Kent Police, who were investigating her partner’s suspected involvement in a succession of bank robberies in Kent. Personal photographs from that phone were attached to a report prepared by the Forensic Telecommunications Service, which was disclosed by Kent Police to Dyfed Powys Police. In turn, Dyfed Powys Police included the photographs in the bundle of evidence which was served on legal representatives and the Panel in the misconduct proceedings brought against Ms Evans. We were able to negotiate a settlement of this matter, with terms consisting of letters of apology, payment of a confidential sum in damages plus her legal costs.
