U.K. Police Computer-Hacking Probe Expands Beyond Media Industry

July 30, 2013

London police expanded an investigation into computer hacking and corporate spying to include people and companies beyond the press.

Operation Tuleta, opened in the wake of two other probes into reporting practices at News Corp. (NWSA:US) newspapers, is now looking into “companies and individuals outside of the media industry,” a Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said. She declined to comment further on the details of the case.

Police opened the investigation in July 2011 following probes into hacking of mobile-phone voicemails and allegations of bribery at British newspapers. At least 20 people have been arrested as part of the computer-hacking investigation.
