(follow-up) UK: Rapists demand cash over lost data stick

From the jailhouse-lawyers dept:

Laura Clout of The Daily Express reports that 13 prisoners, including two serial rapists, have submitted claims for compensation of up to £30,000 each over a computer memory stick lost by a firm working for the Home Office, PA Consulting.

The prisoners claim that that the loss of their personal data violates Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, and is a breach of the 1998 Data Protection Act.
