Crates of documents removed from the same building as Cambridge Analytica's HQ.

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/mar/20/officials-seek-warrant-to-enter-cambridge-analytica-hq

The UK’s information commissioner has announced her intention to investigate CA, but on Tuesday she was still awaiting a warrant to enter its central London offices. A Huffington Post reporter said he had seen around 10 crates of documents being removed from the building, which is shared with other tenants.

1. I hope someone got the van's license plate numbers.

He knows where they went.

5. Hope they can get a warrant soon to stop the removal of evidence. Between this and the

specialist team hired by Facebook, looks like scrubbing is in full cycle mode.

16. In the US, the moment you expect litigation

you send a preservation of documents letter. If documents are destroyed after that letter, there are legal consequences for acting in bad faith.

I don't know if the UK has similar laws.

18. Very good point. Would like to know if UK has similar laws or not. Sure seems like they are purging

incriminating info.

7. Why on earth would you "announce" your intention

to investigate before doing the paperwork necessarily to secure the documents you want to examine?

It seems to me to be pretty sloppy work on the part of British investigators.

Edited to add: I meant to post this in reply to the OP. Sorry for any confusion.

19. I've looked for updates

Seems no update to the warrant story. So it's obvious those files were taken by someone other than UK officials. Pretty stupid to give them a heads up.

the new operation they’ve started with Erik Prince.
