The Department is unable to comment on individual cases. Where to do so would involve a breach of data protection principles concerning sensitive personal data, which state that personal data should be handled fairly and lawfully, and should not be disclosed unless certain specified conditions are met.
In general, decisions on whether to include an individual on list 99 are taken following consideration of information from a number of sources. These may include the police, the individual, social services, local education authorities, schools and medical experts. This list is not exhaustive and representations may be sought from other sources appropriate to the circumstances.
