Encrochat urging users to destroy their phones.

Thirty defendants charged with a raft of offences when police busted an encrypted phone network were left reeling after senior judges in England refused to throw out evidence in their cases.

In a ruling delivered at the Court of Appeal in London, Lord Chief Burnett of Maldon, Lord Justice Edis and Mrs Justice Whipple ruled that messages accessed by French police through the cracking of the Encrochat network were not obtained through interception.

Had the ruling gone otherwise, the messages would have been inadmissible.
