No whistleblower is safe if police hack data, says chairman of Home Affairs Select Committee KEITH VAZ

* Detectives sidestepped a judge’s agreement to protect the source of stories
* Used powers to hack Mail on Sunday phone records to identify source 
* Trawled through thousands of confidential numbers called by journalists 
* Source of the Huhne stories was identified after phone records were hacked
* MPs have warned that police spying on journalists is disproportionate.

It is deeply disturbing that the police have hacked into the offices of a major UK newspaper. In seeking to circumvent a judge’s protection of The Mail on Sunday’s source on the story about Chris Huhne, they have not only acted as a law unto themselves but have struck a serious blow against press freedom.

Furthermore, by seeking to expose the source – who first contacted the newspaper about the Huhne case – they have put every potential whistleblower from every walk of life in jeopardy. 

It appears that being unable to force The Mail on Sunday to reveal its source, the police used the Regulation of Investigatory Powers (RIPA) Act – legislation designed to help tackle terrorism – to do the job instead.

Chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee Keith Vaz, who has described the hacking as ‘deeply disturbing’ 
Surveillance laws such as RIPA have been a matter of great concern to the Home Affairs Select Committee. 

So many ordinary citizens have been targeted as a matter of mistaken identity. For those affected this represents a serious invasion of privacy.

Where you have the deliberate use of RIPA, as in the case of journalists from The Mail on Sunday being targeted, that is an even more serious matter.

Mr Vaz says he will be writing to the Chief Constable of Kent Police Alan Pughsley to ask him what happened
Where the third party is not even entitled to access to this information or even the power to get this information, this is even more dangerous.

In this case the police force concerned appears to have used this information and handed it to someone who is party to other proceedings – and I cannot think that this was the intention of Parliament when passing this law.

If this is where we are going to go with RIPA and this is how its power is being used, we need to know which police authorities are using it, the number of applications made and why. 

I shall also be writing to the Chief Constable of Kent to ask him for a full and complete account of what has happened.

We will expect full cooperation. Citizens have a right to be concerned about legislation that is no longer fit for purpose.

As result of the case of The Mail on Sunday, I will suggest to the committee that we should call the Interception of Communication Commissioner to come before us and offer an explanation of the way in which RIPA is being used and how he holds to account those using RIPA.

I shall also be writing to the Chief Constable of Kent to ask him for a full and complete account of what has happened.

e to be freelance journalist Andrew Alderson, his name – along with details of telephone calls and emails between him and MoS News Editor David Dillon – were passed by prosecutors to Chris Huhne’s defence lawyers.

Former News of the World executive pleads guilty to plotting to hack phones
Huhne police grabbed reporter’s phone data to unmask the go-between in discussions between the Mail on Sunday and Constance Briscoe 

Police files include an entry which reads: ‘Landline attributed to David Dillon for the period 14/11/2011 to 13/11/2012. Checked for contact with all numbers…’

In a bizarre twist, Mr Dillon first became aware that his phone calls had been monitored by police when he happened to notice his own name on a confidential document being read by one of Huhne’s lawyers in a Chinese restaurant near the MoS offices.

In his desperation to wriggle off the hook after illegally passing speeding points to his wife, Huhne would stop at nothing.

Throughout a marathon legal battle to avoid prosecution, the former Energy Secretary claimed this newspaper was engaged in a conspiracy of lies with his ex-wife Vicky Pryce and her friend, lawyer Constance Briscoe, all aimed at disgracing him.

Police officers probing Huhne’s baseless accusations used powers granted to them under anti-terrorism legislation to blithely sidestep a judge’s agreement that Mr Alderson could remain anonymous.

Mr Huhne’s former wife, Vicky Pryce, who was also jailed for eight months after denying perverting the course of justice after she accepted her husbands speeding points on her licence  
Officers used RIPA powers – which require only the approval of a senior police officer, rather than a judge – to seize the landline and mobile phone records of Mr Dillon, along with those of Ms Pryce and Ms Briscoe, one of Britain’s first black female judges.

All this time, of course, it should not be forgotten that Mr Huhne knew only too well that he was guilty of the original offence, but he would not admit it until the last possible moment.

By painstakingly cross-referencing the mountain of records, and drawing up a spreadsheet summarising telephone and email contacts, the police established that our source was respected journalist Mr Alderson – then paid him an unannounced visit at his remote home in Cornwall.

Mr Alderson’s mobile and landline records were also trawled through by officers, then they – along with the phone records of the other three parties – were also handed to Huhne’s legal team under the legal process of disclosure, giving the former Lib Dem MP free rein to see what numbers had been called by the very journalists who had been investigating his crime.

Following a series of meetings, emails and telephone calls stretching over eight months at venues including the houses of friends of Ms Pryce in Clapham, South London, The Mail on Sunday was able to break the story of Huhne’s points switch in May 2011. Huhne was to continue to deny the allegation for almost two years, both in public and to Essex Police, after an investigation was swiftly launched.

On February 3, 2012, the Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer QC, announced there was sufficient evidence to bring charges against both Huhne and Pryce. At around the same time, the Crown Prosecution Service – and Huhne’s defence lawyers – approached the MoS – for our ‘source material’ relating to the story.

The CPS wanted to use Ms Briscoe as a key prosecution witness against Huhne, but were worried that she had lied to the police, which would discredit her as a witness. And indeed she had, unbeknown to the MoS, by giving a witness statement to the police denying that she had been involved in giving stories about Huhne to the media.

At the same time, Huhne’s team shared the same suspicions and were keen to discredit Briscoe so that her hearsay evidence about what Vicky Pryce had told her about the speeding points could not be admitted to the prosecution case.

In October 2012, the CPS applied to a judge for an order requiring the MoS to produce material which had been provided by Pryce and Briscoe. The CPS application was made under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE), which acknowledges that journalistic material held in confidence – including the identity of confidential sources – must only be disclosed to the police in exceptional circumstances when very serious crimes are being investigated.

After a legal fight, material was disclosed – but the judge agreed that the name of our source should be redacted from the material.

Soon afterwards, the CPS confirmed that they would drop Ms Briscoe as a witness as she had clearly lied to the police.

Some of Ms Briscoe’s emails which were disclosed to both prosecution and defence referred to her having a ‘police source’. Huhne and his lawyers immediately seized upon this as evidence of a conspiracy against him, and claimed that the prosecution’s case was now fatally flawed.

Mr Justice Sweeney ordered that a different police force should investigate whether Briscoe had compromised the investigation.

That investigation was mounted by Kent Police, under the code name ‘Operation Solar’. But rather than use PACE, the officers decided instead to deploy RIPA, which meant they only needed the authority of a senior police officer to seize landline and mobile phone records and to identify the source, who turned out to be not a police officer at all, but Mr Alderson.

TWO Kent police officers made an unscheduled call to the writer’s five-bedroomed clifftop home in Portloe, Cornwall, on the cold night of November 9, 2012.

An email from 2010, left, with the source’s name hidden and Mr Alderson’s name being found in Mail on Sunday phone records in 2012  
These extracts from a Kent Police document show how detectives trawled through a year’s records from November 2011 for eight phone lines, including the MoS newsdesk, to expose our source.

A judge had ordered the MoS to hand over emails stretching further back, but said Andrew Alderson’s name could be redacted. But by obtaining phone records via RIPA, police identified his number and linked it back to the emails.

This has happened to me with over 50 Witheld calls since sept 9 2014,to Neil Scott the person making allegations of Falsified forensics and attempts on his life in police cells and at his home by Persons known to detectives in middlesbrough

telephone calls against the redacted emails to piece together the jigsaw.

NONE of which would help Huhne, however.

The judge agreed with the police that there was not – and never had been – any conspiracy, and the prosecution went ahead.

Huhne denied the charges until the day the trial began in February 2013, and subsequently received an eight-month jail sentence, as did his wife, for perverting the course of justice. Later, Briscoe was jailed for 16 months, for attempting to pervert justice.

In our strenuous efforts to protect our sources and resist handing over emails to Huhne’s lawyers, The Mail on Sunday ran up a £150,000 legal bill, none of which can be recovered.

Shortly after emerging from prison, Huhne reflected on the wreckage of his political career and – typically – blamed not himself but the newspapers for his downfall.

Writing in The Guardian of the ‘intrusive and hurtful’ media and the ‘corrosive effect’ on the public’s view of politicians, he seemed to have forgotten the judge’s damning words as he was jailed in 2013. ‘Despite your high office you tried to lie your way out of trouble by claiming you were innocent, by repeating that lie again and again during your extensive interviews by the police,’ said Mr Justice Sweeney.

Last night, when contacted by The Mail on Sunday, Mr Huhne, 60, said simply: ‘Thanks very much’ and ended the call.

The 2011 exclusive by the Mail on Sunday revealing he had put penalty points for speeding on to his then wife’s driving licence 
In May 2011, The Mail on Sunday broke the story that Energy Secretary Chris Huhne had, in 2003, put penalty points for speeding on to his then wife Vicky Pryce’s licence.

We had been contacted several months earlier – via an intermediary – by Huhne’s ex-wife and her friend Constance Briscoe. Huhne continued to deny the offence both in public and to police until the very last moment.

Almost two years later, in March 2013, Huhne and Pryce were sentenced to eight months imprisonment. And, in May this year, Briscoe was jailed for 16 months, and was subsequently removed from the judiciary.

Thanks to the Mail on Sunday reports.
