Sensitive data dumped at recycling center. Indian Consulate tossed visa applications from business, political figures at S.F. facility.
Among the papers were visa applications submitted by Byron Pollitt, chief financial officer of San Francisco's Gap Inc., and Anne Gust, wife of California Attorney General Jerry Brown.
"As we see it, the documents are not confidential," said B.S. Prakash, the consul general. "We would see something as confidential if it has a Social Security number or a credit card number, not a passport number."
My Question to Mr. Prakash - Don't you have shredders in your offices? And what kind of message are we sending here to the world ?
