Britain’s police chiefs are drawing up draconian rules under which the identities of people they arrest will be kept secret from the public.

The move, which follows a recommendation by Lord Justice Leveson in his report into press standards, has been branded an attack on open justice and has led to comparisons with police states such as North Korea and Zimbabwe.

Under current arrangements, police release basic details of a person arrested and in many cases will confirm a name to journalists. But the practice varies from force to force.

Under the new guidance, to be circulated by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO), forces will be banned from confirming the names of suspects, even when journalists know the identity of someone who has been arrested.

  1. Here we go more freedoms taken away from the citizenry, it looks as the police are becoming a secret police. What is next holding citizens in secret for an unspecified length of time? Freedom and liberty are very fragile even in The UK, USA, Canada, the EU and most countries with elected democratic rule of law. We all know it does not take much for devious politicians to circumvent the legal system. God forbid are western nations going back to a pre Magna Carta era, when no one had rights?

  2. It is a Muslim outreach. When most of your scum have “Mohammed” tucked into their moniker, it may fan the flames of dreaded Islamophobia. Just another cowardly act by a nation of cowards. The irony is that it makes them look like Nazis. Heh!

  3. Frank way too many politicians want to take away all of our rights, they want a neo feudal system where they are the nobles and royals and we are peasants at best and serfs if they get their full wishes.

    The next thing will be indefinite incarnation before the trial with the trail being a star chamber trail.

  4. This the way elitists prevent the public from being angry with government policies or with subcultures with in a country is say said subculture was say 10% of the population but committed 50% of the crimes.

    Plan A is for the liberal elitists to say that groups not not often more than other groups.

    For example when I said in the U.S. there might be 4,000 less traffic a fatalities a year (10% less) in the U.S. if illegals were not present. Their pro undocumented worker argument was that illegals can no more fatalities than their proportion of the population.

    Plan B is to say controlled for poverty or whatever that a particular subculture does not offend more than average or that it is slight.

    Plan C is to not tell you who murders, robs, rapes or pimps by name, ethnicity of subculture. We are not to do statistics and make inferences by using mathematics on paper or using Statistica or Mathtab or by internal calculation. The elites want to do all the thinking for us.

    They could say that they will not give out names for 24 or 72 hours (to prevent riots) and then they will give out information, but you know they won’t do that. They will stimmy FOIA requests, ignore & dissemble. This is to shape the news cycle & the political forum by denying information. This is mind control.
