#AceFinanceNews – COPENHAGEN – May 14 – Police raided the journalists’ homes and the offices of Aller Media, just over a week after charging a man for supplying gossip magazine Se & Hoer with confidential information from an on-line payment company.
One of the men was Ken B. Rasmussen, a former journalist at Se & Hoer who last month released a purportedly fictional book detailing how the magazine used private credit card information to write stories about members of the royal family.
Se & Hoer scoops included Denmark’s Prince Joachim’s 2008 honeymoon in Canada, a story which baffled the tabloid competition at the time since it had been kept secret.
The credit card transactions of former Danish Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen were also said to have been monitored. Actor Mads Mikkelsen is among a handful of celebrities who have made allegations against Aller Media to the police.
