Jimmy Tarbuck child abuse claim: police must end 'secret arrests' says Brian Paddick
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/1004...n-Paddick.html
Secret arrests, were they secret or just not announced to a baying media ? has he considered that if this was a normal person we would probably know absolutely nothing about it, does he mean that all celebs should be named in the press to show action is being taken whilst ordinary people are not or does he want all ordinary people to receive as much print space ? Or does he mean they are secret as in less police officers are tipping off the press for cash these days.

As for his comment

Its a fundamental principle that the openness of the criminal justice system starts when someone is arrested.

Does he need reminding that so does the Contempt of Court Act.
