Man Arrested in Relation to Data Breach

 

A man was arrested at 0740am this morning at a residence in the South District in relation to a public enquiry regarding a data breach.

 

The local man, 56, was arrested on suspicion of:

 

• Conspiracy to Obtain Unauthorised Access to Computer Material, Contrary to S362 Crimes Act 2011 & Crimes Act 2011.

 

• Misconduct in Public Office, Contrary to Common Law

 

• Unlawful Obtaining of Personal Data, Contrary to S175 Data Protection Act

 

His arrest relates to a serious data breach.

 

An RGP spokesman said: “The Commissioner of Police Richard Ullger would like to reassure the public that, whilst this high-profile case is ongoing his officers will continue with their normal duties, keeping everyone safe and secure.

 

“The Royal Gibraltar Police remains committed to delivering a safer Gibraltar through excellence in policing – a view that was reinforced by last year’s His Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS) report and frequent statements of confidence from His Excellency the Governor and the Chief Minister.”
