Two face charges over BNP web list.

TWO people have been charged under the Data Protection Act after a British National Party membership list, which included North Walians, was leaked onto the internet police said yesterday.

Dyfed-Powys Police said the two people were arrested as part of a joint investigation with the Information Commissioner's Office.

They are a 27-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman living in Nottingham at the time of the offence.

They are due to appear in Nottingham Magistrates Court on September 1. The far-right BNP called for a police investigation last November after the names, addresses and contact details of some 10,000 of its members were published online.

It included more than 170 people from North Wales including a former police officer, an ex-Tory councillor, a former social worker, a former North Wales Ambulance worker, and a Christian lay preacher.

All six North Wales counties had people listed as being BNP members with Wrexham and Conwy having the highest, on 42 listed members each.

Party leader Nick Griffin described the publication as "a disgraceful act of treachery" by former BNP staff members who were subsequently sacked.
