Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
I have been asked to look at this.
What is the nature of the grooming?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She was groomed online with an app called kik. She did what he asked her to to he has pictures eat and he showed hi privates to her. The total time this went on was just over a year.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Do you mean she was in contact with somebody online?
How old is she?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My daughter is 14 now but was 13 at the time. Yes she was in contact with this man online through the app called kik. Police Scotland asked them to tell them his details but they refused. The police have evidence of what this man has done I wanted to know if we could persure this company for an answer. They are protecting this man what about my daughter and all the children he will be still doing this to.

Ok. I see the problem.
Yes, you can ask. You have no power to force and therein lies the problem.
Come what may, they are outside of the jurisdiction which is the issue for the police. The other problem is that even if they do disclose this information if he is outside the jurisdiction the action fails.
So, in short, it is possible to ask but there is no power to force them I'm afraid.
If they were based in Scotland there would be powers for the police to seize information.
I'm very sorry but that is the reality.
Can I clarify anything for you?

thanks for your help it's very difficult for me and my husband to be so powerless
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Yes, I know.
Unfortunately that is what happens when Parliament creates offences that can't be enforced. The downside of Government by the ballot box is that politicians just pass laws that are vote winners rather than doing the right thing.
