Murdoch’s News Of The World ‘Hacked’ Milly Dowler’s Phone: Rebecca Brooks Starts Planning For Maternity Leave?

by | 4th, July 2011

THE allegation is that Glenn Mulcaire, an investigator working for the News of the World allegedly, hacked into the mobile phone of Milly Dowler, the girl murdered by Levi Bellfield.

It is said that while the hunt for Milly was on, Mulcaire intercepted messages left by relatives and that some of these message were deleted when the message box became full. It is alleged that this made room for new messages.

So. One day a caller might have been told Milly’s message box was full. The next day they would have been allowed to leave a message.

The solicitor for Milly Dowler’s parents, Mark Lewis, says this alleged act of deletion gave his clients false hope their daughter was alive.

It is said that this hacking dated from 2002 when the paper was being edited by Rebekah Brooks (nee Wade). What happen to her? Well, she is now News International’s chief executive. Is it time for her to go? Will she be sacked? That could be troublesome. How about if she has a baby, and laves on extend maternity leave? Watch this space.

NORTE: By way of interest, the News of The World runs campaigns – campaigns are what differentiate one newspaper from the next.

Current campaigns are:

Click bullying into touch
Sarah Law – “The News of the World championed the scheme – named after murder victim Sarah Payne – which gives parents the right to know if someone with regular access to their kids is a child sex offender”.
Save Our Streets – campaign to save our streets form nasty people

Thanks goodness the NoTW is protecting the country’s wellbeing.
