Re: It seems that ABC is well aware of the Streisand effect

Note that there are at least two people who have sued Google in UK under the Right to be forgotten, one has won, the other has lost, and as far as I know their name has been kept out of the media. This was extensively reported on this excellent website:

https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/04/13/google_right_be_forgotten_trial_nt2_victory_nt1_loss/

I remember that at the time I did not manage to figure out from tantalising clues the identity of these people, despite spending a couple of hours on the internet. I believe the gag order on their name is still in effect, so even if you know who they are, you are forbidden to reveal it.
