Soca’s dithering may impede justice

Christopher Graham, the Information Commissioner, has admitted almost 100 blue-chip organisations and celebrities may escape prosecution due to law enforcement agencies engaging in a “seven-year dither” over tackling their links to rogue private investigators. Mr Graham criticised Scotland Yard and the Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca) for failing to pass him “31 fat lever arch files” of potential evidence against law practices, accountancy firms and management consultants connected to rogue private investigators. The ICO also admitted being involved in the decision to ignore the individuals and companies first identified during Soca’s Operation Millipede as long ago as 2008. However, he claimed he was powerless to prevent the suspension in action he claimed was forced on him by Soca and the Met. In an appearance before the Home Affairs Select Committee, Mr Graham was forced to concede that the delay in leads being followed up could cause problems in pursuing prosecutions against the individuals and companies named in connection with four criminal private investigators.
