Official efforts to stop publication of the JET report into child abuse in Nottingham have come under fire from the UK's Cyber-Rights & Cyber-Liberties group, which has called for web sites worldwide to mirror the disputed document.
"The genie is out of the bottle," said Yaman Akdeniz, who heads the group.
"The issue at stake is now public interest and freedom of information."
As reported in PC Week (10th June), The 1990 JET report by Nottingham police and social services, concentrates on a case involving satanic rituals and abuse in which 10 people were sent to prison. Nottinghamshire County Council has threatened legal action against sites in the UK, Canada, and the US for setting up links to the report.
A spokesman told PC Week: "These children are still in care. It's not acceptable that this report should now be available for everyone to read, complete with the names of those children."
