Pretty sure that for now this is a Daily Kos exclusive, because while the official news story, from The Milton Keynes Citizen merely has this headline:
EXCLUSIVE: Rebekah Brooks questioned at Milton Keynes Police Station...I just received an email from Brit saying this:
Just spoke to the police. They confirmed arrest but didn't know if charges were to be brought yetSo there you have it. The frizzy, red haired lady has been arrested for a third time.
From The Milton Keynes Citizen:
FORMER Sun editor and News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks has been at Milton Keynes Police Station today.http://www.miltonkeynes.co.uk/...
Ms Brooks, who was arrested as part of the national phone hacking investigation on March 13, arrived in a black BMW at around 10am.
She has not yet been seen leaving.
Kudos to Kosack Brit, a.k.a Peter Jukes, for giving us this gem. Ooh - I'm just getting word from him that this latest Brooks arrest has to do with illegal payments to the Ministry of Defence! More as I get it....
...Okay, a very short news bulletin from itv news (h/t Brit):
The former Chief Executive of News International, Rebekah Brooks, reportedly faced questions from police about payments made to officials at the Ministry of Defence.http://www.itv.com/...
Mrs Brooks has answered bail in Milton Keynes over allegations of phone-hacking.
According to the Daily Mail, Ms. Brooks' arrest today relates to evidence handed over by News Corporation's Management and Standards Committee.
From ceebs in the comments:
Reports are that she has been bailed to return at a date in May.Please support the soon-to-be-released book by Peter Jukes (Brit), which I'll be illustrating, titled, THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF MURDOCH:
I think we must be getting close to actual charges being laid against people, time between interviews and bail returns are getting much closer together.
