One2One man accused of spying

Former employee is now helping police with their inquiries

A former employee of One2One is the subject of a police investigation, following claims that he was passing sensitive information about the company to one of its rivals, according to The Guardiannewspaper. The man was arrested a fortnight (that's two weeks, for anyone reading this in the US - Ed) ago, but so far has not been charged with any crime. One2One employed the man on a short term contract, but became suspicious after his password was used to access the company's network after his contract had expired. One2One was able to confirm that an ex-employee was "assisting the police with their enquiries" but could not reveal further information. The Guardian reports that the man was working in a department where he would have had access to information about dealers and commissions. The man has been bailed to return on 7 September, pending further inquiries. ®
