Rupert Murdoch UK Phone Tapping Scandal Leads to More Arrests

As predicted by the Morton Minute two weeks ago, there have been more arrests in the long-running phone tapping saga that has embroiled the British media.

The latest journalist to be questioned and arrested is Laura Elston, the former royal correspondent for the Press Association news agency. This follows the questioning of Terenia Taras, a freelance journalist from Leeds in the north of England who was a former girlfriend of Greg Miskiw, a senior executive at the News of the World tabloid, the newspaper at the centre of the investigation by a 45 strong team from Scotland Yard.

In a separate development, a judge has ruled that Scotland Yard must hand over the notes and other documents seized from convicted private investigator Glen Mulcaire to public figures including actors Steve Coogan and Jude Law who are suing News International, the owner of the Sunday tabloid.

With so many police officers on the case and so much information being uncovered, this case will run and run.
