Minister Young says he is very concerned about the information brought to light in Wylie's book about how the UNC sanctioned a breach of citizens' privacy.
 
He says he is also alarmed at how the information was used by a political party and not the State. 
 
As such the National Security Minister says he will ask for the launch of a criminal investigation into the matter. 
 
He adds, parallel to that probe along with the Attorney General's office will make an official request for assistance from international jurisdictions. 
 
The Minister says a Special Prosecutor to look into this information. 
 
Minister Young says he has reason to believe the information is still being used by the UNC and the party is continuing to abuse the privacy and rights of citizens.
