Police and Politics
It’s not unusual for notable individuals to write the Wikimedia Foundation and ask us to remove information from the projects. It is unusual for the police to do it on their behalf. In September 2018, Italian police requested that we delete content from an Italian Wikipedia article about a politician. We directed them to the article talk page, where they could raise their concerns to project editors. Around the same time, Italian Wikipedia contributors were discussing various improvements to the article, many of which they carried out. Perhaps the resulting changes addressed the issue, because neither the police nor the politician has contacted us again.
