A JUDGE yesterday hit out at police and the Attorney-General's chambers for 'insensitivity' after the names of two alleged blackmail victims appeared on trial papers. Mr Justice Stuart-Moore said it was highly irresponsible to reveal the identities, addresses and telephone numbers on witness statements. The judge warned that blackmail victims would stop coming forward if they feared their names could be published. He said the true names could be replaced by 'Mr X' or 'Mr Y' and spaces for addresses and telephone numbers marked 'notified to the police'. Pseudonyms should also be used on indictments and in trials to protect complainants. Mr Justice Stuart-Moore was commenting after making a court order banning the publication of the names of a couple allegedly blackmailed with semi-nude photographs. 'In the present case, the witness statements show not only their full names, but disclose their address and telephone numbers. 'It is highly insensitive to the victims to require them to write out all their telephone numbers and home addresses for everyone to read on the witness statement. 'There's no reason why in many cases of blackmail the real name of the victim should be disclosed. It's the fear of disclosure which leads many people not to report the offence.' The judge said the Attorney-General's chambers should also proceed 'with care and sensitivity' in preparing the indictment and use pseudonyms where appropriate. 'Unfortunately, this was not done in the present case. The result is that the media generally areaware of the true identity of the victims of this alleged blackmail,' he said.
