I opened mail that was addressed to my house, but not addressed to me. The contents of which I read, is a police matter. Now I have a letter from Cobbetts trying to silence me.....

 

What is the law on this????

You'll have to give more detail. Was it in relation to this site?

It's illegal under the Postal Services Act 2000, but there are many loopholes to this act - the main one being that there has to be intent to cause a detriment to another. Therefore, the chances of any prosecution going ahead is minimal - but that is for the act of opening only...

 

If you were privy to information that is priviledged, then they are entitled to pursue a "gagging" order to stop you from passing that information around. Worst case scenario, a court order could be issued by a judge to prevent you from passing on or using the information to which you have seen.

 

However, how did they know that you had opened it? Or was it that you contacted them to tell them that this person did not live there?

Lived through bankruptcy to tell the tale! Worked in various industries and studied law at university. All advice is given in good faith only :)

yes i phone the company to tell them that they had sent the info to the wrong house, the info that i read, was so bad that it's is a criminal matter. Ive phoned cobbetts to let them know that I have informed the police, they weren't very happy to say the least. threatening me with court today at 12 noon.

if their letter shows they intend to commit a criminal act , then there is a duty to report their criminal intention, there is sweet FA they can do if you reported it to the Police, and there is no Judge in the land that would go against you for reporting their intentions.

 

and just how do they think they can decide a court time date ?? > quote; threatening me with court today at 12 noon

 

I would also inform the Police of their further threats to you

NEVER FORGET

No, it's not.

 

The legislation applies to mail whist in transit. That ceases legally on delivery to the written address.

 

Once it is on the door mat, anybody can open it without committing an offence under the Act

Hi

I agree with advice given by kiptower you should inform the police of any threads received.

if it really had went to court you would have been informed about it , allowing you to defend your self, have you updated the police about their latest threats ? if not do it ASAP

 

sounds like you have caught them with their trousers down and are trying to gag you with threats of what they MAY do , if the contents are that serious you must get the POLICE to take this up, only the Police or a Court of Law with an injuction can stop you speaking about the contents, and until this is served legally on you it does not apply, they can make threats of what they may and can do , but until it really goes to court and you had a chance to defend yourself , any thing they say comes from fairyland, and they know it

 

as for opening the letter there is nothing in law that stops you opening it once it went through your letter box, the actual law refers to mail in transit via royal mail, and this has already been highlighted in a post a few up

It will be out soon

That's an intriguing comment.

 

Did they give any reason they would be going for the gagging order. We do still have freedom of speech except in a very few cases - they would need to convince the court that this was one of them

Would the media be interested in this?

It's not for them to tell you what to do. It's interesting that they say don't tell the media though; a) because the information contained in the letter is obviously going to be interesting to a large number of people (otherwise the media wouldn't be interested and b) they obviously haven't got, and doubt that they would get, a gagging order (otherwise you'd have been sent that rather than a letter)
