A whistleblower has alleged that the destruction of ‘spycops’ files by Metropolitan Police Service undercover units was far more extensive than admitted. Additional information about this has been sourced by The Canary. The whistleblower made the claims in a letter to Green party peer Jenny Jones.
The whistleblower also alleged that the Metropolitan Police Service organised the illegal hacking of communications of hundreds of political activists, some from Greenpeace. The alleged hacking included Guardian journalists and photojournalists.
Also listed in the letter were hacked passwords of environmental campaigners, four of whom were from Greenpeace. The whistleblower claimed that the hacking of communications by the Met was organised by contacts within the Indian Police.
