Former MLC's trial continues

The prosecution and defence will begin summing up this morning in the trial of a former Tynwald member.

Juan Turner, who sat on the Legislative Council, is accused of breaching the Data Protection Act.

He's company secretary of Island FM - which is alleged to have failed to register as a data controller.

A charge against his father David Turner was dismissed yesterday, although Carrick Creative - of which he’s a director - is also on trial for the same offence.

Mr Turner and both companies deny the charges, which date from April to October last year.

Yesterday, Deputy High Bailiff Jayne Hughes heard Island FM held a broadcast licence for Energy FM and was obliged to hold recordings of its output for 42 days.

Information Commissioner Iain McDonald told the hearing news bulletins in those recordings would be classed as sensitive information and so the company needed to be registered.

All of the defendants have declined to give evidence and the case continues today.
