Demon Founder Charged Under R.I.P.A

Posted: 14th Feb, 2004 By: MarkJ
Shockingly the founder of UK ISP Demon Internet (THUS), Cliff Stanford, has been accused of intercepting e-mails sent by Redbus chairman John Porter. The charge (conspiracy to blackmail and the illegal interception of communications) was made under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers (RIP) Act:

Stanford, who was arrested by officers of the National High-Tech Crime Unit and charged on Thursday, is accused of illegally intercepting the emails of John Porter, chairman of Internet company Redbus. A second man, George Liddell, was charged with the same offences last month.

Stanford, who founded both Redbus and Demon Internet, is reported to have denied both charges. He and Liddell, described in reports as a corporate troubleshooter, are due to appear in court next month.

Police began investigating Stanford last year after he resigned from Redbus and sold all his shares in the firm. It is understood that the charges against him relate to allegations that he secretly intercepted emails sent to John Porter from his mother, Tesco heiress and disgraced former politician Dame Shirley Porter.


Stanford left Demon sometime ago and has denied the allegations. More @ ZDNet.
