Terenia Taras

Freelance Journalist

The fourth journalist to be detained, Taras, 39, was arrested in her home on the morning of June 23. Police released her seven hours later without charge. Taras, the ex-girlfriend of former News of the World assistant editor Greg Miskiw, contributed to 36 stories for the tabloid over a six year period, and also wrote for other tabloids including the Daily Mail and the Sunday Mirror. As part of her bail conditions, she must return to a police station near her home in West Yorkshire in mid-October, and could face further questions.
