Rebekah Brooks among six arrested in phone-hacking investigation
Former Sun editor held by Operation Weeting detectives on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice

Rebekah Brooks is among six people arrested by Scotland Yard detectives on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, as part of the investigation into phone hacking.

 The former News International chief executive was arrested at her home in Oxfordshire by detectives from Operation Weeting. Sources also said that her husband, race course trainer Charlie Brooks, was also arrested. . .

 . . . . Brooks was also previously arrested on 17 July last year on appointment at a London police station on suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications, contrary to Section1(1) Criminal Law Act 1977 and on suspicion of corruption allegations contrary to Section 1 of the Prevention of Corruption Act 1906. . . .  (more)

Arrests at The [UK] Sun newspaper and the link to David Kelly’s murder

14 02 2012

Trowbridge H. Ford has new details on the connection between the arrests this week at The Sun (Rupert Murdoch phone hacking scandal) and the murder of David Kelly. 

Kelly knew the US stories about WMD on the run up to the Iraq invasion were phoney.

British Court to Re-examine (WMD whistleblower) David Kelly’s Death – UPDATE: They Kill It

19 12 2011

New Inquiry by Britain’s High court tomorrow

As told to –   Trowbridge H. Ford

Jürgen Möllemann was killed when it was feared that he would make a big deal of the Mossad having used a single sourse, Curveball, to go after Saddam’s alleged WMD – what the BND (German Bundesnachrichtendienstes ) had provided the Americans from the unreliable drunk without any confirmation – and the crazies in Washington had used to oust the Iraqi dictator.

While Bush had announced, thanks to this disinformation, at the end of May 2003 that the weapons of mass destruction had been found, the Mossad and the BND knew that they were in big trouble, especially since no-nonsense investigator David Kay had just been appointed to get to the bottom on the troubling tale.

The Germans knew that Möllemann was bound to make a big deal out of the matter when Kay reported it, so they and the Mossad got rid of him by cutting the straps on his main parachute, leading to his death on June 5, 2003.

When David Kelly joined the controversy when he told his line handler at the MoD that he was the source talking to the BBC’s Andy Gilligan, questioning the claims about Saddam having the same weapons, parachutist Stephen Hilder was killed in essentially the same way, making it look like such rare accidents are quite common, and hoping to dilute interest in what happened to Möllemann.

When this seemed to be happening, the Mossad kidon, it seems, killed Kelly on the night of July 17, 2003.

Being state-sponsored murders, it is hardly surprising that none of them have been solved in the slightest. The Möllemann and Hilder deaths are simply unexplained, and Kelly’s is being considered again by a judge of Britain’s High court tomorrow as to whether there should be a new inquest into his killing.

Addendum –

The German BND ( Bundesnachrichtendienstes ) took out Möllemann because the government and it were divided over Saddam’s alleged WMD.  The government voted against the resolution, calling for his ouster, though it passed because there were enough votes in the SC without it.  With the finding by Kay – what showed that Curveball should not have been believed by anyone, and Jürgen going to make a political comeback in spades because of it – the BND gave the green light to his killing, most likely by the Mossad which cut the straps on Hilder’s parachute too.


They kill the new inquiry.

Dr David Kelly inquest ruling challenge fails


Feb. 14 – Trowbridge H. Ford writes:

Readers may be interested to know that the Metropolitan police arrested last week five leaders of The Sun newspaper, the Dominc Wilsons, and an unnamed Surrey police officer.

The arrests seems to revive official interest in the murder of Dr. David Kelly.  Mrs. Kate Wilson was the Ministry of Defence’s Chief Press Officer at the time, and she and its Director of News Pam Teare worked out the details of a Question and Answer scheme for disclosing who had told the BBC’s Andrew Gilligan about Iraq’s alleged WMD during the period from July 4-9, 2003.

It seems that her husband Dominic, the privale secretary for the MoD’s permanent secretary Sir Kevin Tebbit, informed Rupert Murdoch’s Sun about what was afoot, and it hired the Surrey policeman to give it the eavesdropping ability of wireless communications to determine what was going on.  The Murdoch papers took the lead in outing Kelly – what resulted in his public humiliation, and subsequent murder.

The only problem is that a Sun reporter at the time, Sean Hoare, knew about what was going on, telling first reporters for The New York Times and then The Guardian, and then the Metropolitan police about what had gone on – resulting in his murder in July 2011. 

Now it seems that the Met, after the forced resignations of corrupt Chief Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson and his associate John Yates just after Hoare’s murder in the hope of limiting the most damaging blowback, has revived the possibility of finding out who killed Kelly, and why unless this is just another dead end.

What may determine what results lies in the hands of Pam Teare, Kate’s former boss, and now an important official in the Crown Prosecution Service:
Will she promote going after Kelly’s killers at this late date, or will she just cover it up again?
In the meantime, I am writing a long article about the whole mess.

Emphasis ours. The next installment will be posted here. Stay tuned – F.C.

Another News of the World Exec Arrested

2 08 2011

From the Guardian (UK) –

Stuart Kuttner, the public face of the News of the World and its most vocal public defender for 22 years, has been arrested by police investigating allegations of phone hacking and of bribing police officers to leak sensitive information.

As managing editor until his resignation in July 2009, Kuttner was in charge of finances at the now-defunct tabloid. . . .

. . . .   Kuttner is believed to have been arrested on suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications, contrary to section 1 (1) of the Criminal Law Act 1977, and on suspicion of corruption contrary to section 1 of the Prevention of Corruption Act 1906.

They are the same allegations that Rebekah Brooks, the former News of the World editor and ex-News International chief executive, faces since her arrest last month.

When Brooks faced a Commons culture, media and sport select committee hearing last month she told MPs that payments to private investigators were the responsibility of the paper’s managing editor’s office.

Brooks admitted using private investigators during her time as editor of the tabloid between 2000 and 2003 for, she claimed, “purely legitimate” purposes.

When asked whether she had ever discussed individual payments to private investigators with Kuttner, she admitted that “payments to private investigators would have gone through the managing editor’s office”. But, she added: “I can’t remember if we ever discussed individual payments.” . . .   (lots more)

The mother of a murdered British schoolgirl was targeted by a private investigator working for Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World, her charity said on Thursday, reigniting a phone-hacking scandal that has shaken his global media empire.

The Phoenix Foundation, a children’s charity that Sara Payne co-founded after her daughter was killed by a pedophile in 2000, said her details were found in notes kept by investigator Glenn Mulcaire, employed by the top-selling tabloid.
