CCG chief quizzed over e-mail hacking

Warrington Guardian: CCG chief quizzed over e-mail hacking CCG chief quizzed over e-mail hacking

A SENIOR member of the town’s health body Warrington Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has been quizzed by cops in Salford after being accused of hacking into an e-mail account.

Chief finance officer Stephen Sutcliffe was interviewed under caution in December over the allegations which are contrary to the Computer Misuse Act.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman confirmed he had not been arrested.

It is thought Mr Sutcliffe was forwarding information from intercepted e-mails to a third party and was caught out when the other person mistakenly replied to one of the e-mails.

A Warrington CCG spokesman said: “‘This issue has been brought to the attention of the CCG and we are currently looking into the allegation.”

It seems there is a lot not said in this report.
'It is thought Mr Sutcliffe was forwarding?' Was he, or was he not? Surely the police would not have interviewed this person had there been any doubt that they had suspicion that he had broken the law.
I would have thought that someone in his position would not just have to be squeaky clean, but would have to be seen to be squeaky clean.
I was always under the impression that an accountant was someone you quite naturally had the greatest trust is. Now, I'm not so certain.
