Millionaire Hacker Story Not True

    Date14 Feb 2006
    Posted ByBenjamin D. Thomas
    In our news story published on 2 February 2006 entitled "Millionaire charged over hacking affair" we reported that Matthew Mellon, the well-known member of the Mellon family and successful businessman, had been arrested and charged in connection with allegations of phone tapping and illegal access to NHS systems and private medical records for the purpose of blackmailing famous individuals over controversial medical records.

    We accept that our report was entirely untrue and defamatory and that Matthew Mellon has not been arrested or charged in relation to such offences at all.
