Confidentiality and Crime   
The right to privacy in general requires confidentiality concerning personal issues, but there are some situations which may cause confidentiality to be forfeited. These situations are those that involve the welfare of other persons.
 
For instance, actions that facilitate or cause loss or injury to others cannot be kept confidential – unless, either:
 
1. 
Firstly, the issue is being dealt with by some authority, such as law enforcement, in the process of preparing evidence for submission to a court of law; or,
 
2.  Secondly, it is in the interest of the victim or victims to maintain confidentiality.  
So, if neither of these two applies, then any demands for the maintenance of confidentiality are often really a cover to prevent embarrassment and save face, or to avoid culpability/accountability of some kind.
A COMMUNITY THAT DOES NOT CARE IS COMPLICIT
 
"To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice [than religious practice]." (Proverbs 21:3 ESV)
Justice is a global issue . . .
