UK charge 2 journalists for The Sun newspaper

World, UK News : British officials are charging two journalists for The Sun newspaper as part of an investigation into bribery of public officials.

The Crown Prosecution Service said Friday that The Sun’s Jamie Pyatt and John Edwards will be charged along with Robert Neave, a former healthcare assistant at Broadmoor, Britain’s hospital for the criminally insane, with conspiring to commit misconduct in a public office.

Prosecutors allege that over nearly nine years, The Sun paid more than 30,000 pounds to public officials, including Neave, for information including about the health and activities of Broadmoor patients and details about a royal family member’s work.

The charges are being brought as part of Operation Elveden, an investigation being run in conjunction with probes into phone hacking.
