UK police stole dead children's identities: report

World Bulletin / News Desk

A UK report said, British police have been stealing the identities of dead children and using them as aliases for their undercover operations, some of which lasted for as long as ten years.

­It is estimated that around 80 identities have been adopted by the Metropolitan police with passports, national insurance cards and driving licenses issued for the stolen identity, the Guardian investigation has revealed.

The probe alleges that the Metropolitan police secretly authorized such activities back in the 1960’s to infiltrate protest groups. They did so without informing the parents of the dead children.

The practice was reportedly stopped in the 1990’s with the introduction of digital technology into public records. But the Metroplolitan police said they were investigating a case from 2003.
