LAWYERS representing Senator Stuart Syvret have written to the Attorney General and the police to complain that they have acted illegally against him.
They claim that the legal authorities have misused a law designed to combat public disorder and low level nuisance in an attempt to gag him.
And they say that the States police and the law officers are breaching his right of expression under the European Convention for the Protection of Rights.
The Senator’s Grouville home was searched on 6 April in relation to an alleged breach of the data protection law. Eight days later, he was handed a States of Jersey Police allegation of harassment form relating to the alleged breach.
