The Metropolitan Police said it hopes the guilty verdict handed down to cyberstalker Andrew Meldrum will act as a deterrent and bring "some consolation" to his victims.
I would like to thank all witnesses in this investigation but especially the three victims who gave evidence on matters that were clearly of a private, intimate and personal nature to them. Meldrum effectively hacked into their lives.
I hope that they can take some consolation in the guilty verdict that sends out a clear message to anyone that this type of intrusion into a person's private life is not acceptable and the Metropolitan Police will support all victims and pursue all suspects.
