A former editor on the Sun’s night newsdesk was arrested today by police investigating a suspected conspiracy involving data taken from stolen mobile phones.
The 37 year old journalist who still works at the Sun, was not named by the Metropolitan Police or News International. He was arrested at an east London police station by appointment.
Yesterday the Sun’s chief foreign correspondent, Nick Parker, 51, was arrested as part of the same Operation Tuleta investigation into criminal breaches of privacy
Three Sun journalists have now been arrested by officers investigating events allegedly related to a missing mobile phone belonging to an MP. The phone is understood to have been found by a member of the public who contacted the Sun.
Last month reporter Rhodri Phillips, 35, was questioned and bailed by Tuleta detectives. Mr Phillips had worked a night news reporter for the Sun.
Scotland Yard repeated assurances given after previous arrests which said their action was “not about seeking journalists to reveal confidential sources in relation to information that had been obtained legitimately.”
The Operation Tuleta investigation into computer hacking and other linked privacy laws has now arrested nine people.
