Police arrest Sun royal editor for phone-hacking
Thursday 19 April 2012
by Paddy McGuffin, Home Affairs Reporter
The Sun newspaper’s royal editor and a former member of the armed forces were among three people arrested on Thursday by detectives investigating alleged illegal payments to public officials.
Officers from Scotland Yard’s Operation Elveden carried out dawn raids on homes in Kent and Lancashire.
A total of 26 people have now been arrested since last July as part of the operation, which is linked to the Metropolitan Police’s continuing phone-hacking investigation.
Police said detectives arrested a 42-year-old former serviceman and a 38-year-old woman at their home in Lancashire at about 6am.
A man was held on suspicion of misconduct in a public office and a woman on suspicion of aiding and abetting misconduct in a public office. They were being questioned at a police station in Lancashire.
Sun reporter Duncan Larcombe was arrested at his home in Kent on suspicion of conspiracy to corrupt and conspiracy to cause misconduct in a public office. He was being questioned at a police station in Kent.
Scotland Yard said: “Today’s operation is the result of information provided to police by News Corporation’s management standards committee.
“It relates to suspected payments to a public official and is not about seeking journalists to reveal confidential sources in relation to information that has been obtained legitimately.”
Meanwhile Labour MP Tom Watson, in a new book Dial M for Murdoch co-written with the Independent‘s Martin Hickman, has detailed the pressure applied to MPs to hold off from investigating the phone-hacking scandal.
In particular the book will highlight the behaviour of News International towards members of the Commons culture, media and sport committee while it was challenging the cover-up.
