Identity Of The Sun’s Ministry Of Defence Mole Revealed

Bettina Jordan Barber is married to an Army officer, and had high-level security clearance which allowed her access to highly-sensitive information. The 42-year-old was respected by colleagues, and advised the Royal Family on military matters when Princes William and Harry were serving in the armed forces, writes Gaetan Portal for the BBC.

A veteran chief reporter at the Sun, John Kay, says that Barber regularly delivered exclusive stories, and was paid accordingly. The story has just came to light after legal restrictions were lifted, and we now know that Barber provided information for 65 stories between January 2004 and August 2011, for which she was paid £100,000.

After her arrest in February 2012, Barber played a major role in the trial of ex-Sun editor Rebekah Brooks, which resulted in Brooks being cleared of conspiracy to commit misconduct in public office.

Shortly after starting work at the MoD in 1997, Barber had to sign the Official Secrets Act. This did not stop her abusing the information that she began to have access to as she rose through the ranks of the civil service, and she would regularly pitch sensitive army stories to her contact, John Kay.
