Leveson Inquiry :Statement on behalf of Peter Hain regarding Operation Tuleta

Computer hacking: A spokesman for Peter Hain said:

“Earlier today Peter Hain met with Metropolitan police officers leading Operation Tuleta regarding an investigation into the alleged hacking of his official and personal computers during his time as Secretary of State for Northern Ireland.

I can confirm that Mr Hain has instructed the lawyer Charlotte Harris of Mishcon de Reya to act on his behalf.

Given the serious and sensitive nature of this on-going investigation, it would not be appropriate to comment further at this stage.”
