A practical case: There is an ongoing case by DCI about an alleged online
child pornography/sex tourism. The case was brought to DCI's attention by
the public. DCI in response posts the picture, ID number, phone number,
full names, workplace and residence of the suspect on their Facebook page.
(Its in form of a mugshot)
The reason for the post seems to be feedback to the public that the suspect
they reported has been arrested.
My question is, what aspects of such cases should be covered under data
