Charge Over Lost Data

The government officer who left the “Terror” Document on a train is be charged under the official secrets act, and not section 55 of the data protection act.

The individual has been charged under Section 8.1 of the Official Secrets Act

Interestingly the BBC article on the issue states that the individual responsible, who can not be named, “was informed of the decision on Monday morning and was moved from his home to an undisclosed location.”

The systems are in place that allow for this massive failure, holding one man responsible for the entire government systems endemic failure hardly seems fair.
