Sun journalist held in privacy investigation
Friday 20 July 2012
A journalist from The Sun newspaper was arrested yesterday by police investigating alleged criminal breaches of privacy.
The man – understood to be reporter Rhodri Phillips – was held at his home in north London by officers from Operation Tuleta, which is investigating alleged computer hacking and wider privacy offences.
He is the seventh person to be arrested as part of the inquiry, which operates in conjunction with the phone-hacking investigation.
A spokeswoman from News International said: "We can confirm a journalist from The Sun was arrested this morning."
Scotland Yard said they were releasing no more details for "operational reasons".
