'Sun' executive attacks police - The Irish Times - Mon, Feb 13, 2012

A senior figure at the Sun  today attacked police who arrested five Sun  journalists, claiming his colleagues had been treated like "members of an organised crime gang".

The journalists were among eight people arrested at the weekend over allegations of improper payments to police and public officials.

Trevor Kavanagh, the newspaper's associate editor, said the police investigation into alleged press malpractice was regarded by many as a "witch-hunt" and suggested that free speech in the United Kingdom was under attack.

In a strongly worded article printed in the tabloid, he argued that those arrested had been released on "draconian" bail terms like those imposed on suspected terrorists.
