Daily Mail knowingly publishes inaccurate personal data in order to weaken privacy injunction

Just published on http://amberhawk.typepad.com/

According to a Court judgment issued last Friday, the Daily Mail has published deliberate untruths in order to further its campaign against privacy injunctions. The injunction in question involved “Fred the Shred”, the erstwhile banker who has cost the taxpayer millions of pounds when the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) collapsed.


So there we have it. A newspaper editor undermining the credibility of his newspaper’s journalism in order to break a privacy injunction. Instead of engaging in the Courts or with Parliament with facts in the public interest, he has allowed a leading newspaper in the UK to undermine the rule of law by manufacturing and publishing, what are in effect, deliberate lies.
