The Guardian in the UK is among those reporting that a woman who served as former News International CEO Rebekah Brooks’ personal assistant for 19 years has been arrested in connection with the News Of The World phone-hacking scandal. UK press report that Cheryl Carter was picked up this morning on suspicion of attempting to pervert the course of justice in a police probe. It’s the latest evidence that investigators are still focused in on the top brass of News Corp’s UK newspaper arm and have not backed away from looking at Brooks, who was arrested in July after the scandal that shuttered NOTW broke open. Carter no longer works for News International or Brooks, the Guardian said.
