Two bailed in computer hacking inquiry
Two men arrested as part of Scotland Yard's investigation into computer hacking have been bailed.
A 50-year-old, who was arrested at his home in Hertfordshire yesterday morning, and a 51-year-old, who was detained in Surrey hours later, are both suspected of committing offences under the Computer Misuse Act 1990 and the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000.
They have been bailed to dates in June and July.
Scotland Yard said the arrests were not directly linked to any news organisation or the activities of journalists.
The arrests were made by officers from Scotland Yard's Operation Tuleta, which is investigating allegations regarding breach of privacy that fall outside the remit of Operation Weeting, the force's phone-hacking probe.
There are currently 16 police staff working specifically on Operation Tuleta.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Sue Akers recently told the Leveson Inquiry that the operation is investigating 57 separate allegations of data intrusion. Some related to Metropolitan Police inquiries going back as far as the late 1980s, she told the inquiry.
