Publishing giant Aller fired three employees at the Se og Hør trash mag today – an editor, an accountant and a journalist – as Denmark's biggest ever media scandal continues to unfold.

In addition, two senior personnel and another employee have received a warning, Politiken reports, while the former news editor, Lise Bondesen, has been charged with illegal prying – taking the total number charged by the police to eight.

The scandal erupted after BT tabloid in April revealed how Se and Hør had pried into the credit card transactions of celebrities and royals through a then anonymous source who was an employee at the credit card IT service Nets. 

Board knew nothing
Aller's own internal investigation revealed that all of the employees who were fired today knew about the illegal source, who has since been revealed to be 45-year-old Peter Bo Henriksen.

While the investigation report concludes that more employees knew about the illegal activities, the current managing board is cleared of having any knowledge of the source.

Only the main assessments of the report have been main public, as the content is restricted to the board members.
