Glenn Mulcaire wasn’t the only shady private investigator on News of the World’s payroll. Beginning in the 1990s, News of the World, as well as the Daily Mirror and the Sunday Mirror, solicited the talents of Jonathan Rees. According to The Guardian, Rees is a Freemason who set up a network of corrupt Masonic police, customs officials, taxmen, and bank staff to get access to private information on high-ranking public figures. He also got information through more traditional methods, such as commissioning burglaries or, in one case, hacking into the computer of a British intelligence officer. In 1999, after several years of earning a six-figure salary from News of the World, Rees was arrested in a plot to plant cocaine on a client’s wife.
