Up to nine Mirror Group journalists face ‘imminent’ phone hacking charges

Various Claimants v Mirror Group Newspapers Limited

Up to nine former Mirror Group journalists and executives could face “imminent” criminal charges over phone hacking.

A civil court heard this week that four files now in the hands of Operation Golding contained documents including emails and expenses claims for disposable mobile phones. These files were described by Met’s counsel Jonathan Dixie as “evidence” that had changed the assessment on whether criminal proceedings would be brought against individuals who have previously been arrested in connection with phone hacking.

Taylor Hampton’s Anjlee Saigol said: “After a three-day court hearing MGN has failed to limit the scope of documents it must provide relating to phone hacking. The order for further disclosure could be capable of dealing with what the judge called the ‘holes’ in MGN’s admissions of liability and the amount of compensation victims might be awarded.”

A civil trial remains scheduled for February next year.
