Police Payments: Sun Reporter Bailed By Met









  • 6 Comments










Sun reporter Jamie Pyatt has worked for the tabloid for two years





2:33am UK, Saturday November 05, 2011





A 48-year-old man arrested by detectives investigating
illegal payments to police officers by journalists has been released on
bail.



Jamie Pyatt, 48, has worked for the paper for more than two years and
is the first non-News Of The World journalist to be arrested as part of
the wider phone hacking and police payment investigations.


As a district journalist for the tabloid based in the Thames Valley,
he covered the murder of teenager Milly Dowler, whose own phone was
hacked by the News Of The World.


The revelation that Milly's phone was hacked triggered a storm of outrage which led to the Sunday tabloid's closure in July.


News International confirmed in a statement that an employee had been arrested.


"News International is cooperating fully with the Metropolitan Police
service in its various investigations," the statement said.












Jamie Pyatt is a district editor for The Sun





The arrest, in connection with allegations of corruption, took place
at about 10.30am on Friday morning at an address outside London.


It is the sixth made by detectives working on Operation Elveden, set
up following claims that police officers had received thousands of
pounds from the News of the World for information.


Police are also investigating phone hacking under Operation Weeting, and computer hacking under Operation Tuleta.


Around 5,800 people are now thought to have had their phones hacked by the News of the World, police have revealed.


Carol Caplin, the guru who worked with former prime minister Tony
Blair, is the latest high-profile figure to emerge as a possible victim.

A spokesman said she had recently been notified by police that her
mobile phone messages were hacked by private investigator Glenn Mulcaire
while he was working for the now-defunct Sunday paper.


A total of 16 people have been arrested and bailed as part of the phone hacking scandal so far.


A High Court judge is due to hear evidence from a group of "lead
claimants" at a trial in January. Any rulings he makes are expected to
provide a blueprint for the way other claims are dealt with.


A separate public inquiry is also due to hear evidence on media ethics and hacking over the next year.
