Two people have today been charged with offences under the Data Protection Act for leaking the BNP's membership list last year.
The pair will appear before magistrates in Nottingham on 1 September, following a joint investigation by Dyfed-Powys Police and the Information Commissioner's Office.
They were arrested in December after a file containing details including names, occupations and addresses of more than 10,000 members of the far right party was released by an anti-fascist group and quickly spread online.
At the time BNP leader Nick Griffin claimed the leak was a deliberate attempt to damage the party by disgruntled former members. He lodged a criminal complaint with Dyfed-Powys Police, his local force.
Meanwhile net-savvy opponents used the data to map support for the BNP and uploaded it to Wikileaks, beyond the reach of a court injunction banning its publication. ®
