Man takes legal action against Labour political spam emails
Tired of being harassed by unsolicited emails from the Labour Party, Alfred Mangion decided to take action of the legal variety.
Mr Mangion has filed a formal complaint against Labour leader Joseph Muscat and the Labour Party on the basis that he never gave consent for his personal email to be used for unwanted political emails.
His lawyer, Daniela Mangion, claimed that the fact that the Labour Party had acquired Mr Mangion’s email without his knowledge was a breach of the Data Protection Act, and is seeking clarification to see whether this was done legitimately or not.
Dr Mangion asked the Commissioner for Data Protection, Joseph Ebejer, to launch an official investigation into whether the Labour Party was obtaining its email addresses lawfully, and has also ordered the PL to cease and desist harassing her client with unwanted political emails, as well as to delete Mr Mangion’s email from its database.
