The officers are both facing charges of misconduct in public office after evidence from the Independent Office for Police Conduct . “The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against both defendants are active and that they have a right to a fair trial.” Danyal Hussein, 18, from Blackheath, has been charged with two counts of murder and possession of an offensive weapon in connection with the deaths of Ms Henry and Ms Smallman, and is set to stand trial later this year.
The monthly controversy for the new privacy rules at WhatsApp has for Facebook's chat service so far only low consequences in Germany. In a survey on behalf of the German Press Agency, 79 percent stated that they have the app on their smartphone and also use them. Half of the WhatsApp users (52 percent) already approved the new provisions entered in mid-May.
At the same time, 13 percent assessed that they pretend to delete the app. About half of them have previously had privacy concerns, five percent of Yougov Germany surveyed came first with the debate about the new provisions doubt - and two percent would like to leave because many of their contacts would have removed WhatsApp.
finds fences and gentures here as a visual protection
You wish you more privacy in your garden? PassersPant should not look directly into the entrance area? You have a pool in which you would like to dangle the soul undisturbed in summer? Then you are certainly looking for a lookout. Safety and discretion offer you the fences and gentairs of northern fence.
Whether it actually comes to the lasting farewell of WhatsApp, however, is another question. Over the past twelve months, only three percent of respondents deleted the app from their smartphones. And in total, eight percent stated that they had already removed WhatsApp - but then returned because to reach many of their contacts about the service.
At the same time, almost half of the WhatsApp users have no good feeling about privacy. Although every third one has concern - but remains because the contacts are reached there. Another 14 percent doubt, but do not know a good alternative. No privacy concerns have 28 percent.
WhatsApp has more than two billion users. In recent months after the announcement of new usage rules, the service had to fight with clear criticism. Trigger was the assessment that the update could be shared with more data with the Facebook Group nut. WhatsApp rejects this as a misunderstanding and explains the changes should create a basis for communication between companies and their customers. At the same time, the service had plans fall, over time the functionality for users who do not agree to the rules do not restrict.
Nicola Sturgeon fights to hold on to her majority
Counting continues in Scotland today, with the SNP leader's hopes of achieving a majority on a knife edge - but it is almost certain the party will win its fourth term in power at Holyrood. Ms Sturgeon said 'when the time is right' she will offer Scots 'the choice of a better future' in a second referendum on independence - but Mr Johnson hit back, insisting he would not back the 'irresponsible' move and senior minister George Eustice warned it was the wrong time to be considering another plebiscite.
The communication between companies and their customers is the current plan, as Facebook finally wants to earn money with WhatsApp. The world's largest online network took over WhatsApp 2014 for around 22 billion dollars at the end. With the purchase took Facebook a potential rival from the market, but the service has hardly contributed to the consolidated profit so far.
The most popular WhatsApp alternative among the few potential wanderers is the survey according to 27 percent signal. On the technology of this app for so-called end-to-end encryption also takes back WhatsApp. In the complete encryption, content of communication is basically only visible to the participants in plain text, but not for the operators of the platform. Signal is now financially supported by WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton, who left the Facebook Group.
almost equal to signal was in the favor of possible WhatsApp migrant telegram. For those of the founder of the Russian Facebook clone Vkontakte, Pawel Durow, operated app, 26 percent want to decide. The Threema service came to 16 percent, on Facebook's in-house alternative Messenger want to change 13 percent. On the classic SMS instead of end-to-end encrypted chat services, 15 percent want to resort.
Even with those who have already left WhatsApp, signal with 28 percent as an alternative. Around every fifth among them, Threema and Telegram uses the Facebook Messenger, as well as 15 percent.
In the representative online survey, Yougov Germany responded in mid-June 2029.
