Secret Jersey court case

Four prominent Jersey citizens have sued the blogger and former senator Stuart Syvret because they want to have posts removed from his blog.

They are not suing him for libel, as you might expect, but under data protection legislation.

Their legal action is being funded by the Jersey government.

And the trial took place in secret.

That's justice, Jersey style.

Thanks to voiceforchildren.

The implications of this bizarre misuse of the Data Protection Law to silence opposition, are simply mind-boggling.

I did speak about this in parliament.
