Scotland Yard detectives have arrested a 32-year-old woman under an operation code named ‘Operation Elveden’. She was arrested on suspicion of corruption and aiding and abetting misconduct in a public office and conspiracy in relation to both offences.
This is the twenty third arrest as part of Operation Elveden, the Metropolitan police said. The Operation Elveden is about investigating suspected payments to police officers and public officials and is not about seeking journalists to reveal confidential sources in relation to information that has been obtained legitimately.
The information to the police came from News Corporation’s Management Standards Committee.
