Fill in the face?

According to a press release by the Liberal Democrats, over 15,000 people have disputed their criminal records check since the inception of the CRB in 2002 and last year over 2,500 were in dispute.

Disclosures can be disputed if your name is the same as a criminal, if inaccurate information is held by the police or if you are the victim of identity fraud.

Chris Huhne said:“These disputes do not fill you with confidence that the Government can run the new Vetting and Barring Scheme and check millions more people without making the same mistakes.”

It is estimated that at least 11 million people are to be on the ISA database.
