“What was accessed was the records of calls, not the content of those calls. Just the fact of the existence of the calls in the first place.”“A result of this matter and as a result of us identifying this breach, we have been reviewing our internal practices and procedures to make sure they are as robust as possible.”
Shockingly, the AFP asserted that due to the investigation being “on-going,” the journalist whose metadata was improperly and illegally accessed has not been notified, nor has the AFP investigator who illegally accessed it been disciplined in any way.
1. The nations top police force accessed journalists metadata illegally
2. Then destroyed the evidence
3. Didn’t tell the journalist.
