Twitter users can land up in ‘rude shock’
London: Thousands of Twitter users may find themselves in a ‘rude shock’ if they flout injunctions, the way they did in the case of ‘Big Brother’ participant Imogen Thomas and premier League footballer Ryan Giggs.
Attorney General Dominic Grieve declared that until MPs decide upon refitting privacy legislation, it was up to the judges to interpret the law and punish whoever breaks it.
His warning came as Prime Minister David Cameron announced a major review of the law.
Cameron admitted that even he knew that Ryan Giggs was the footballer at the centre of the furore, hours before his name was revealed in Parliament.
Mr Grieve, in an emergency debate in the ‘Commons’ sounded serious about the issue.
“Those who I think may take an idea that modern methods of communication mean they can act with impunity may well find themselves in for a rude shock,” the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.
“The courts do have the power to punish those who breach injunctions. Those who decide flagrantly to do so should bear that in mind,” he added.
