Today the PSNI has agreed to delete the unlawfully seized data from their computer systems. But Computer Weekly has learned that the PSNI is unable to delete data that is being held on the PSNI’s back-up tapes for 10 years. @trevorbirney @Barry_TheDetail #NoStoneUnturned

Barry and Trevor have fought for over two years in the courts for the PSNI to delete the data it unlawfully held on its computer systems. Today they, and the film company Fine Point Films, were awarded £875,000 – a record amount. @trevorbirney @Barry_TheDetail #NoStoneUnturned
