Why are the tabloid media hounding the notorious Maxine Carr ? They seem to be intent on exposing her new ID, even to the extent of challenging the court injunction which is meant to protect her new identity. The voyeuristic press hysteria has lead to the real risk of illegal vigilantism, despite the fact that she is also one of the Soham murderer Huntley's victims.
The fact that the Home Office cannot be trusted to keep confidential documents regarding her new identity safe, further reduces any trust that might still exist that they are likely to be able to secure the proposed Compulsory Biometric National Identity Register.
Under the Government's proposed Draft ID card Bill, it will be an offence, punishable by repeated ?1000 civil penalty fines, not to provide the National Identity register with accurate details of all current and other names and all current and former addresses, and the times and dates at which you resided at those addresses.
These name and address requirements are even more stringent than even the Violent and Sexual Offenders Register (ViSOR), yet, unlike ViSOR entries, they will last for the rest of your life:.
