MP argues that data breaches will force “left-behind” Afghan interpreters to move

A former Conservative defense minister claims that Afghan interpreters “will move home again tonight” after data on people coming to Britain have been compromised.

The Ministry of Defense (MoD) has begun investigating violations, contacting affected people, and authorities providing advice on how to manage the potential risks posed by revealing data. Said.

According to media reports, some of the people whose information was released have been hidden from the Taliban after militants ruled a war-torn country last month.

Johnny Mercer tweeted. “The truth about how we treated Afghan interpreters will be revealed.

“All slapping operations in pitching obscures the performance of negligence by the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Interior in fulfilling our obligations to these people.

“Again, the majority are left behind and will probably move home again tonight.”

He spoke to PA news agency and added that the treatment of Afghan interpreters was “very shameful.”

He believes that concerns about Afghanistan’s relocation and support policy, the Arup program, are a reaction to “serious false alarms” after he and other defense officials wrote to the Defense and Interior Ministers. He added.

“Their arrogance is life-threatening. This latest episode only accelerates it. It’s very embarrassing,” he said.

Authorities said it was “inappropriate” to comment on the details of the case, but the BBC said the breach referred to an email.

Broadcasters reported that more than 250 people seeking immigration to the UK, many of whom were hidden, were mistakenly copied to an email from MoD seeking up-to-date information on the situation.

The report suggests that some email addresses had photos attached.

Labor Party Shadow Defense Minister John Healy said:

“The current priority is to urgently step up efforts to safely bring these Afghans to the United Kingdom.

“This is the second serious data breach from MoD this year after a confidential document was discovered at a bus stop in Kent in June.

“Obviously, the Defense Minister needs to tidy up his house.”

A Defense Ministry spokeswoman said: “A survey on information leaks from the Afghanistan Relocation Assistance Policy Team has begun.

“We apologize to everyone affected by this breach and strive to prevent it from recurring.

“The Ministry of Defense takes the responsibility for processing information and data very seriously.”

One source confirmed that Defense Minister Ben Wallace had personally ordered an investigation.

MoD said it will take all necessary steps under the UK GDPR regulations.
