Private Investigations and Personal Security/What happens when you try and get information from ?


QUESTION: What happens when you try and get information from a person? He says that you canít get it with out a valid Icelandic court order or similar order from Icelandic authorities. This is because all the data is hosted on a computer server in Iceland, and outside the US and EU legal jurisdiction.

ANSWER: It is too difficult to answer your question as written. You need to provide more factual information. Is the "person" a private party, a governmental agency, a corporation, etc.? What type of information are you seeking? Where are you? What is the purpose of the inquiry? Once you pose the question in a manner that makes sense, I will do my best to give you a response.

---------- FOLLOW-UP ----------

QUESTION: Would the FBI/US Attorney try to obtain this information in violation of Icelandic law?

Once more, you are not forthwith with enough information for anyone to give you an intelligent asnwer. Look at your reply question......WHAT information? In addition to being a very well known private investigator, I am also a ranking police officer. There is no doubt I can answer your question but until you start talking in specifics, this is regretfully a waste of time. What Icelandic law are you speaking about?

Give me a narrative. Tell me the story with no names. I need specifics as would sny other professional.
