Channel TV also has a video on the story. In it Syvret claims that a number of journalists' numbers have been deleted too.
The politician arrested last week for allegedly breaking data protection laws says Jersey police have erased numbers from his mobile phone.
Officers held Senator Stuart Syvret at the police station for seven hours last Monday after arresting him at his home in Grouville.
Yesterday, they returned a number of documents that were seized in the arrest.
But, when he tried to recall the telephone number of the UK Liberal Democrat MP, John Hemming, Senator Syvret found it had been deleted from his phone.
He said he believed police had deliberately erased it in order to "stop the political fallout" from his arrest.
"The police had this phone and its SIM card for six hours last Monday. They've obviously taken it out, copied the contents of the SIM card and certain key contact numbers, they've wiped," he said.
