This relates to one case where the public official was a prison officer at a high security prison during the periods when the payments were made and the related stories were published.

In this case, the individual's former partner has acted as the conduit and facilitated the payments into their bank account. And that bank account, from the former partner, reveals numerous payments from News International, Trinity Mirror and Express Newspapers between April 2010 and June 2011.
