Fury as homes raided in hunt for Matt Hancock affair whistle-blowers despite YOUR right to know about his rule-breaking
The Sun says: BRITAIN’S data watchdog was hit by a furious backlash last night after they raided homes in their hunt for the Matt Hancock scandal whistle-blowers.
The former Health Secretary quit after The Sun last month revealed CCTV of his office clinch with aide Gina Coladangelo, which broke lockdown rules.
Yesterday the Information Commissioner’s Office seized computers and other devices after searching two properties in the south of England.
But their “overkill” probe was branded a menace to the free Press by MPs, campaigners and the public — who said the tipsters should be “given a medal”.
The Information Commissioner’s Office was accused of behaving like the East German Stasi.
Plasterer Craig Wells said: “The whistleblowers should be getting medals for this.”
There were also fears the raids may act as a deterrent to other whistle-blowers — leaving other scandals uncovered as a result.
