Partner Amjid Jabbar comments in The Times in relation to the collapse of the £3.5 million Scotland Yard computer hacking investigation, ‘Operation Tuleta’.

 

Amjid’s comments were published in The Times, 9 September 2015. Read the full article here.

“A £3.5 million Scotland Yard investigation into alleged computer hacking collapsed today when 15 suspects were told they would not face any charges.

The Crown Prosecution Service said the charges police wanted to bring under Operation Tuleta had a time limit of six months from the commission of the alleged offence and could never have been brought against those detained…

…Amjid Jabbar, solicitor for one of those arrested, said serious questions had to be asked about the way the investigation was conducted.

Mr Jabbar added: “It is astonishing that this investigation has been ongoing for years and it has now been concluded that the offences at the centre of the investigation were time barred. Having reached that conclusion, other offences were considered in what appears to be an attempt to justify the investigation.

“The cost of this investigation have been great both in human and monetary terms and calls into question how decisions have been made in this investigation.””
