Former News International CEO Rebekah Brooks Arrested Again

Former News of The World Editor and CEO of News International Rebekah Brooks has been arrested once again. The New York Times reports that her she and five other individuals were rounded-up early this morning on suspicion of “conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.” In American terms that’s obstruction of justice.

Brooks was arrested — then bailed out — last summer in connection with the phone hacking scandal. She has maintained that she wasn’t aware of anything illegal going on at the paper or News International. Her husband, Charlie Brooks, was also arrested.

The identities of the others arrested was not disclosed.
