Mug shots of London’s most wanted criminals will soon be accessible from the Metropolitan Police Web-site. The new section, which Scotland Yard estimates should be up and running in the next few months, will also feature details of suspects alleged crimes. This announcement comes just two weeks after a man, wanted for the brutal murder of four people, was captured at Amsterdam airport thanks to the Metropolitan Police Web-site. Ibrahim Aderdour, 40, was arrested by Dutch customs officials who recognised him from a picture posted there. Scotland Yard has admitted that its list will be based on format of the FBI’s site which posts pictures and details of it’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives. The possible implications of officially posting this sort of information are, however, slightly worrying. A search engine showed that there are a large number of hoax FBI lists that could by confused for the real thing by a particularly hysterical member of the public. Also, unless there are some general improvements to the existing Metropolitan Police site, suspects could well be half way to Rio by the time their picture has loaded. ®
