MP hired detectives to check on staff over leaks about expenses
"A justice minister hired private detectives to investigate aides and colleagues surreptitiously to uncover the source of media reports about his parliamentary expenses.
"Jonathan Djanogly, the under secretary of state at the Ministry of Justice, defended his actions, saying he wanted to identify who was behind "malicious allegations" made about him in the press, but he conceded he may have overreacted.
"A report by Morris Chase International, private investigators, in July last year found that aides in his local party in Huntingdon considered him "dishonest", "lazy" and a "disaster". They said he should be deselected, and they believed he had lied over his expenses claims, the Daily Telegraph said."
