Met's email hack probe turns spotlight on The Times - MP

Scotland Yard keeps mum

Security for virtualized datacentres

Scotland Yard officers investigating allegations of computer hacking by News International staff have declined to "give a running commentary" on their probe, batting away MP Tom Watson's narration of the saga.

The Labour backbencher and member of the culture, media and sport select committee had said earlier on Twitter:

The Met police have confirmed to me they are investigating @rupertmurdoch's newspaper The Times over email hacking.

Watson wrote to Met deputy assistant commissioner Sue Akers on 23 January urging cops to look into accusations of computer misuse at The Thunderer, which is published by Murdoch's News International.

Scotland Yard gave The Register this statement:

Officers from Operation Tuleta are in contact with Mr Watson in relation to specific issues he wishes to raise. We are not prepared to give a running commentary on the Operation Tuleta investigation.

One man has been arrested by the Met team working on Operation Tuleta, an investigation into alleged breaches of privacy including computer hacking. ®
