My position is clear: a robust attitude needs to be taken to any
unauthorised interception and investigations should not be inhibited by a
narrow approach to the provisions in issue. The approach I have taken is
therefore to advise the  <http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/police> police and
CPS prosecutors to assume that the provisions of Ripa mean that an offence
may be committed if a communication is intercepted or looked into after it
has been accessed by the intended recipient.
