Three people from the Manchester area have been charged over allegations they hacked into computer systems at English football governing body, the FA.

Dean Mohareb, 30, of Weybourne Drive, Woodley, Stockport has been charged with perverting the course of justice and unauthorised access to computer data. Liam Cliff, 19, of Woodlands Road, Manchester and Vincent Rossi, 46, of Wingfield Avenue, Wilmslow have been charged with perverting the course of justice.

All three accused are due to appear before Stockport Magistrates Court on 5 December 2013. In a statement, Greater Manchester Police said they made the arrests as part of an investigation into computer hacking and the dissemination of private information at the Football Association.

Mohareb, a Football League referee, is a national referee development manager at the FA. He faces allegations he hacked into a colleague's email account in October last year. ®
