Rebekah Brooks Phone Hacking Trial In Photos
THE Phone Hacking Trial: Day 1:
Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson are both accused of conspiracy to intercept communications in the course of their transmission. They allegedly conspired with former News of the World (NotW) head of news Ian Edmondson, 44, from Raynes Park, south west London, the tabloid’s ex-managing editor Stuart Kuttner, 73, from Woodford Green, Essex, and others to illegally access voicemails between October 3 2000 and August 9 2006.
Jurors hearing the case of former News International chief executive Mrs Brooks and ex-spin doctor Andy Coulson were told today that “British justice is on trial”. Mr Justice Saunders gave the panel of nine women and three men at the Old Bailey detailed instructions after they were sworn in today, warning them to consider the case only on the evidence and arguments presented in court.
