Avon and Somerset's chief constable Colin Port has been served with a summons alleging he is in contempt of court for refusing to hand over a horde of suspected child abuse images.
The Bristol Evening Post reported last week how Mr Port could risk jail after threatening to defy a High Court order requiring his force to return the material.
His officers are holding 87 computer hard drives and about 2,500 photographs seized from the Leicestershire home of discredited computer expert Jim Bates, who previously gave his opinion in court cases involving child pornography.
But before Avon and Somerset Police said they had a chance to examine the items, Mr Bates obtained a High Court order preventing officers from proceeding with the investigation.
Two senior judges declared the warrant and seizure of the property unlawful and ordered police to hand back the hard drives, forbidding any examination of them.
Yesterday Mr Port released a statement in which he said: "I can confirm that proceedings alleging that I am in contempt of court have been served on behalf of Mr Bates.
"I am taking independent legal advice as to my position.
"In the circumstances, I will address my response to these allegations to the court and will not be responding to media comment while the proceedings are continuing."

Mr Bates may well know he has some influential friends in high places that will help get him off the hook.

Operation Ore - Police chief Colin Port forced to back down in hard drive stand-off
author by Tony Goslingpublication date Wed Jun 17, 2009 00:29Report this post to the editors

Detectives involved in Operation Ore discovered the owners of some pornographic websites were punching stolen credit card details through their sites to generate cash. But police didn't arrest these fraudsters, they raided - you guessed it - the credit card fraud victims.

June 16, 2009 - The Times
Police chief Colin Port forced to back down in hard drive stand-off
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/crime/article6512468.ece

....Lord Justice Stanley Burnton said Mr Bates had held all the material “in a professional capacity” and that that Mr Port’s delayed compliance with a court order was “regrettable”. The judge added: “The conduct of the chief constable since the order was made has been of concern to us”.
Mr Bates, 68, is regarded as a pioneer of forensic computer examination and was widely used as a prosecution and defence expert witness for many years. But the Crown Prosecution Service stopped using him and in 2006 issued confidential guidance concerning him to prosecutors.
In March 2008, Mr Bates was convicted of four charges of making a false statement and one of perjury relating to claims he had made over many years about his qualifications.
Avon & Somerset police began a fresh investigation into him last September after he obtained a copy of the hard drive of a man charged with possessing child abuse images on computer. Mr Bates was given the material at a Bristol police station when he arrived in the capacity of assistant to another expert witness.
Police later raided his Leicestershire home and he was arrested on suspicion of conspiring to possess indecent images of children. That investigation has now been dropped.
Mr Bates has long contended that the actions against him are an attempt to discredit him because he now acts as a defence expert and is an outspoken critic of police investigations. He is particularly critical of the conduct of Operation Ore, a nationwide inquiry into online child abuse which led to thousands of arrests, convictions and cautions.
He claimed in court papers that he had been subjected to “intimidation, bullying and even threats of violence by the police and some of their misguided supporters”.....

On Tuesday week, 27th March, Avon & Somerset Chief Constable Colin Port is due to appear before the Leveson Enquiry to explain how Chris Jefferies' name and particulars were leaked implicating him to the press - and why ITN were banned from press conferences after they transmitted a report critical of the Jo Yeates murder investigation.
