Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for the reply. I am unsure of what you mean about not being party to the court proceeding as I am the main witness to the case of breach of peace and threatening my life?
It would appear the previously convicted neighbour is wanting the tapes in some sort of attempt to discredit me as I was upset/angry when talking to taxi compay but even at that at no time did I say anything defamatory.
I thought by data protection laws the recordings could not be passed on to a third party without their permission?
The taxi company being a business though, I thought were only allowed to use tapes for their own business use and nothing else unless it was to prevent crime.
As I didn't do anything to cause a crime other than explain why I could not approach my neighbour are they allowed to release these?
Thanks for your help.
