Police files suspension warning

States of Jersey chamber
The States was told about the Operation Blast files in June

A member of Jersey's police force could be suspended in relation to secret files kept on island politicians, the home affairs minister says.

Minister Ian Le Marquand revealed last month that police have held secret files - known as Operation Blast - on Assembly members since 2006.

Mr Le Marquand told the States earlier that suspension was currently being considered for one person.

A final report on Operation Blast is expected in the autumn.

Mr Le Marquand was made aware of the existence of the files in April by the solicitor general.

The files contain a photograph, a criminal record search and information from local and UK police intelligence.
