British police make new phone hacking arrest
London: British police investigating tabloid
phone hacking have arrested a long-serving former assistant to
ex-News of the World editor Rebekah Brooks and other
executives at Rupert Murdoch`s News International group.
A person briefed on the arrest, who demanded anonymity to
discuss details of the sensitive police investigation, said
the woman was Cheryl Carter, the longtime personal assistant
of Brooks also an ex-News International chief executive and
other senior staff. News International declined to comment.
The person said Carter`s arrest was linked to the
recovery of incriminating company emails from a data center in
India last year.
Police said Friday that the 47-year-old woman was
arrested on suspicion of attempting to pervert the course of
justice and later released on police bail to return for more
questioning later this month.
Officers said the woman was detained at her home and
taken to a police station in Essex, east of London, but did
not confirm her name.
