LOVING this! Their statement will be interesting,

Which one of the following paths might they take?

Flat denial: We did not and do not condone such activity...
Ignorance: We take these allegations seriously and will conduct a full internal investigation...
Deflection: In the light of the employment of West Ham of a 'consultant' within the awarding body....
Arrogance: We conducted these investigations in good faith and in the public interest...

I've just seen a Tweet from a BBC journo where he says that a 29 yr old man has been arrested in connection with this case. Spurs also deny they have commissioned any surveillance on OPLC board members. Well they would do would'nt they!

baroness ford might have said to much.

1. it is not illegal to put anyone under survielance.

2. levy did not make that statement in the press. if anyone can find it and prove me wrong then feel free to do so.

any records obtained illegaly is our best bet of any prosecutions. then i'm sure spurs will pay an individual to take the hit.

The telephone records of the vice-chairman of a leading soccer club were 'unlawfully obtained by subterfuge' - and copies found their way into the hands of accountants 'engaged' by a rival club, a High Court judge said.

Mr Justice Coulson said telephone records belonging to West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady were obtained at the height of a dispute over the future use of the 2012 Olympic Stadium.

And he said copies had found their way to a firm of accountants - PKF - engaged by Tottenham.

The judge outlined 'basic facts' at a hearing in London after Ms Brady began legal action in an attempt to 'obtain information' and the 'wrongdoers responsible'.

'At the height of the dispute about the use of the Olympic Stadium, Ms Brady's telephone records were unlawfully obtained by subterfuge,' said Mr Justice Coulson.

'PKF was engaged by Tottenham Hotspur to carry out an investigation that was in some way connected with the Olympic Stadium.

'PKF have, in the last few days, said they do have copies of the wrongfully obtained telephone records.'

The judge was told that Tottenham had been given copies of the records by PKF. But lawyers for Tottenham said no one at the club had the records prior to the start of legal proceedings.

Mr Justice Coulson is due to hear more details about the case at a further High Court hearing in London next Wednesday.

Lawyers for PKF argued that today's hearing should have been held in private to prevent the 'risk of misreporting'.

But the judge said the hearing would be in public.

He said hearings could be held in private in 'wholly exceptional' circumstances and the arguments put forward by PKF came 'nowhere near' the necessary test.

West Ham And Spurs Take To Battle Again
There are more twists and turns in the Olympic Stadium legacy story than Tom Daley attempting an "inward four and half somersault tucked" in a diving final.

Today was the first day of legal action at the High Court brought by West Ham football club's boss Karren Brady.

Ms Brady brought the case against private investigators PKF and it's Partner Howard Hill. She alleges the investigators spied on her by obtaining her phone records during the period both clubs were bidding to take over the Olympic Stadium after the 2012 Olympics.

Spurs have strenuously denied the claims and today said there was no evidence to back them up. They also denied spying on all 14 members of the Olympic Park Legacy Board, the ones who made the decision on who got the stadium post 2012.


Their lawyer told the court that Karen Brady's claims were based on "insinuation, supposition and inuendo" rather than evidence.

After Spurs unsuccessfully applied to ban the press and public from court, a number of facts accepted by all parties were laid out by Justice Coulson.

1) At the height of the dispute around the Olympic Stadium, Ms Brady's telephone records were unlawfully obtained by subterfuge.

2) PKF were authorised to carry out an investigation into West Ham although the terms of that are not clear.

3) PKF have in the last few days accepted that they have copies of Karren Brady's phone record.

The case was adjourned until 2pm on Wednesday next week.

Whether children and sport benefit from the legacy of the stadium is yet to be decided. What is clear there are a lot of lawyers much wealthier from the whole saga and it's not over yet.

So both Tottenham advisers and Tottenham had Karren Brady stolen phone records in their grubby hands. Did it not occur to them that they should immediately give them back to Karren Brady, or to the police?

Do you think a professional investatagive company would not have made provision for something like this and will just bend over?

Perhaps because Spurs and PKF asked for more time to shred documents and cover their tracks?

The annoying thing is that they will. If this was us, the press would be all over us like an unwanted dose and would be shouting from the rooftops about us being kicked out of the league, fined etc etc. They on the other hand have managed to narrow all of this AND Harry's court case down to the odd line here and there.
