UK Tabloid “News of the World” paid bribes worth £100,000 to up to five Met officers.
Cash total said to have shocked Metropolitan police as IPCC vows to oversee Scotland Yard corruption inquiry
Investigators inside Scotland Yard are trying to identify up to five officers who were paid between them a total of at least £100,000 in cash from the News of the World, the Guardian understands.
Documents sent to the police by News International did not name those involved but contained pseudonyms which investigators within the Yard are trying to match with individual officers.
The revelation comes a day after Sir Paul Stephenson, commissioner of the Metropolitan police, said that the amounts involved had been paid to a small number of officers.
News that officers were allegedly paid so much in bribes has caused shock and concern within Scotland Yard, where the directorate of professional standards is now investigating the matter. There have been calls for an external force to be brought in to investigate the scandal – Boris Johnson, the mayor of London, has said someone else should wash the Met’s dirty linen in public.

Another example of the danger around digital information.
If you think thief’s and robbers of confidential information will be sent to prison, think twice. The biggest experts on hacking, is not the criminal youth next door. They are all on the pay roll of the government, and many off them police officers.
The Post-Christian British community is morally bankrupt.
2 Peter 1:4
Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.
Ruppert Murdoch’s News Corp tries its best to wash its hands of the latest corruption scandal in the UK.
If this scandal did not post a treat to billions of dollar in advertisements for Murdoch’s media empire, He would not have lifted a finger.
Money talks around Murdoch. Either the cash is delivered in to the pocket of the Scotland yard, or is paid by lobbyists in Italian style suits, to charities controlled by British politicians.
