A man has been charged with obtaining the details of employees at an accountancy firm.

Liam McCreath allegedly took the particulars of those working for Nicolson Accountancy in Glasgow on September 15, 2020.

Prosecutors state the 33-year-old did knowingly or recklessly obtained personal details without the knowledge of the company’s data controller.

It is alleged McCreath removed a quantity of files from their office in the city’s Kelvinbridge related to people employed by Nicolson Accountancy and their clients.

No plea has been tendered by McCreath at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

A further hearing has been fixed for December.

McCreath, of Paisley, Renfrewshire, remains on bail meantime.
