We are aware of a number of social media posts circulating which may identify potential victims of sexual offences in connection with the live investigation into Reynhard Sinaga.
We would like to stress that under the Sexual Offences (Amendment) Act 2000, victims of sexual offences have a lifelong right to anonymity and therefore any post which identifies victims of sexual offences constitutes a criminal offence. Additionally these posts risk jeopardising an ongoing investigation into serious crime.
Please be mindful when sharing any social media posts.
The UK Film and TV Registration Scheme is for supporting artists (SAs) who own police costume, uniforms, vehicles or equipment. The scheme protects SAs when they’re travelling with these items, reducing the risk of misunderstandings if stopped by the police and of the equipment falling into the wrong hands.
How to register
To join the UK Film and TV Registration Scheme, visit ukfilmandtv.com. You’ll be issued with a photo ID card you must carry with you whenever you're travelling with police equipment.
All UK police forces are aware of the scheme and how to verify the identity of an SA who produces a UK Film and TV Registration Scheme card.
