    Levy was first arrested in July 2006 as part of a police investigation into a long-simmering party funding scandal that has hurt Blair amid a series of sleaze and mismanagement allegations surrounding members of his cabinet.

       

    In December 2005, Blair himself became the first prime minister since David Lloyd George in the 1920s to be interviewed by police in the cash-for-honours probe.

     

    No one at Blair's office was immediately available for comment.
