Two people arrested as part of an investigation into inappropriate payments to police and public officials have been bailed.
A 42-year-old man, a serving member of the Armed Forces, and a 32-year-old woman were both arrested in Surrey yesterday morning.
The man was arrested at an address in Camberley on suspicion of corruption, contrary to the Prevention of Corruption Act 1906; suspicion of misconduct in a public office, contrary to common law; and suspicion of conspiracy to commit both offences, contrary to the Criminal Law Act 1977.
The woman was arrested at her home in Chertsey on suspicion of conspiracy to commit corruption, and suspicion of conspiracy to cause misconduct in a public office - both contrary to the Criminal Law Act 1977.
Both were interviewed at a police station in Surrey and have been bailed pending further inquiries until March 2013.
Operation Elveden is the investigation into allegations of inappropriate payments to police and public officials, and is being supervised by the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC).
It is running in conjunction with Operation Weeting, the Met Police’s inquiry into the phone-hacking of voicemail boxes.
