Proceedings discontinued against Operation Elveden

05.06.13 | |

James Wood QC was leader of the team representing Virginia Wheeler, a journalist with the Sun newspaper, and their defence editor. She was charged with conspiracy to commit misconduct in a public office. Proceedings at Southwark Crown Court before Mr Justice Saunders were discontinued by the prosecution, after representations were successfully made to the Attorney General that he should enter a Nolle Prosecui in her case. She is the first journalist charged as part of Operation Evleden to have proceedings discontinued.
