Arrest in privacy breaches investigation

19:02 04 December 2012

Police have arrested a man as part of an investigation into alleged breaches of privacy.

Scotland Yard said the 55-year-old was arrested at his home in East Sussex at about 7.30am this morning on suspicion of conspiracy to commit offences under Section 3 of the Computer Misuse Act 1990 and Sections 1 and 2 of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000.

The arrest is the 19th under Operation Tuleta, a Metropolitan Police investigation into privacy breaches including the alleged hacking of computers and stolen mobile phones.

The operation is being run in tandem with two other investigations: Operation Weeting, which is looking at alleged phone hacking, and Operation Elveden, an inquiry into claims of corrupt payments to public officials.

The man is being questioned at a Sussex police station.

Scotland Yard said the arrest was not directly linked to any news organisation or the activities of journalists.
