British police right not to disclose personal data

Two men on trial in Thailand for the murder of two British people in September 2014, made requests to see data held on themselves by British police.

The High Court has affirmed the police decision not to disclose personal data to them.

The Commissioner of Police for the Metropolis was found to have correctly applied the Data Protection Act exemptions from complying with subject access provisions where this would be likely to prejudice the prevention or detection of crime or the apprehension or prosecution of offenders.
