'No case'...

Post by Mr007 on Mon Nov 14, 2011 9:33 am

Earlier this month Mr Webb wrote to the Chief Constable to report what he believed was a crime of phone hacking and asked the police to pass the case to another force for investigation.

Thames Valley Police investigated Mr Webb's complaints themselves nine months ago and upheld two of his complaints about poor treatment in custody and retention of his property, but not the one he made alleging phone hacking.

The force wrote: "On the balance of probabilities I find there is no case to answer. A special procedure production order was granted and the voicemails were obtained lawfully."

Mr Webb said the order was signed by a judge five days after police had obtained the information when such an order should have been obtained in advance.

Mr Webb also asks how the police knew of the existence of the messages ahead of the application.

Mr Shuker, the Labour MP for Luton South, said: "There is no clear evidence in this case that that is what Thames Valley did but it does leave a very large unanswered question, exactly how did Thames Valley Police get the core voicemail at the heart of this case when they themselves have acknowledged they got it through interrogating the phone a month after the original voicemail was left?"

In a statement Thames Valley Police said: "Mr Webb's phone was confiscated on arrest as part of a criminal investigation and interrogated using the appropriate legislation. Thames Valley Police did not unlawfully access Mr Webb's phone."

Mr Webb was one of the defendants in the case brought by Thames Valley Police against Milton Keynes journalist Sally Murrer and former Thames Valley detective Mark Kearney.

Three years ago they were all cleared of charges in connection with the alleged leaking to the media of confidential information. The judge said the journalists' right to protect sources had been infringed.
