The civil servant at the heart of a Whitehall leak investigation was in hiding last night as a political storm raged over the arrest of the Tory frontbencher Damian Green.
The 26-year-old civil servant was detained at his home in Middlesex at 6am on November 19. The assistant private secretary, who has been suspended from his job, is being looked after by the Home Office at a secret location because it owes him a “duty of care”, officials said.
The suspect is being held at an undisclosed location by the Home Office?
That’s all a touch Stalinist isn’t it? After he’s been charged and released they keep him in custody?
