UK intelligence sued for using sex to infiltrate activists

UK intelligence sued for using sex to infiltrate activists --Evidence uncovered by the Guardian suggests practice of undercover officers sleeping with their targets 'routine' 21 Nov 2012 Undercover police officers had long-term sexual relationships with political activists and joined them at family gatherings and on holidays to make their targets "emotionally dependent" on them, according to papers submitted to the high court. The allegations were revealed at the start of a legal attempt by the Metropolitan police to have the claims heard in secret. Ten women and one man have launched a legal action claiming they were conned into forming "deeply personal" relationships with the police spies. The case is the first civil action to be brought before a court since the Guardian revealed police officers frequently slept with political campaigners as part of a spy operation over four decades.
