Phone hacking probe: Ex-News of the World editor Coulson arrested

Andy Coulson (l) and Clive Goodman were arrested as part of the investigation into phone hacking
Continue reading the main story
Phone-hacking scandal

Former News of the World (NoW) editor Andy Coulson has been arrested by police investigating phone hacking and corruption allegations.

It came as PM David Cameron defended his decision to employ Mr Coulson as his communications chief and announced two inquiries into the scandal.

Rebekah Brooks, head of the NoW's parent firm News International, denied closing the paper was a "cynical ploy".

Mrs Brooks is no longer heading the firm's own inquiry into the scandal.

A source present at the meeting Rebekah Brooks held with staff at the paper's headquarters in Wapping earlier on Friday, told the BBC she told staff they would eventually understand why the Sunday tabloid had to be closed, and she also apologised for the decision.

Fresh revelations
Mr Coulson, 43, was arrested at 1030 BST on Friday by detectives investigating allegations of hacking the phones of various people in the news and is also being questioned about corruption allegations.

He was arrested by appointment at a south London police station and is in custody.

Mr Coulson has denied any knowledge of phone hacking while he was NoW editor.

Operation Weeting - investigating phone hacking or intrusion into the private lives of hundreds of people. They aim to contact all those whose personal details were found in documents seized in 2006
Operation Elveden - investigating alleged police corruption. Documents handed over by News International on 20 June were assessed by police as including "information relating to alleged inappropriate payments to a small number of officers".
A number of suited men, thought to be police officers, entered his south London home with large plastic crates at about 1200 BST.

Mr Cameron said of Mr Coulson: "I became friends with him and I think he did his job for me in a very effective way. He became a friend and he is a friend."

In other developments:

Former NoW royal editor Clive Goodman, 53, who was jailed in 2007 for phone hacking, has been arrested over corruption claims

Mr Cameron says the Press Complaints Commission (PCC) should be scrapped and replaced with an entirely new system

Prosecutors have asked Strathclyde Police to examine specific claims of phone hacking in Scotland by the NoW

A number of charities - including the Salvation Army, Care International and the RSCPA - have rejected an offer to advertise for free in the final edition of the NoW on Sunday

News International has said it is shutting the NoW after this Sunday's edition following a spate of fresh revelations.

The 168-year-old tabloid is accused of hacking into phones of crime victims, celebrities and politicians. Police have identified 4,000 possible targets.

David Cameron: ''The buck stops right here''
Mr Cameron said the judge-led inquiry would look into "why did the first police investigation fail so abysmally; what exactly was going on at the News of the World and what was going on at other newspapers".

Mr Cameron said a second inquiry would look at the ethics and culture of the press.

The prime minister also questioned the tenability of Mrs Brooks as News International chief executive considering she was editor of the NoW at the time murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler's phone was being hacked.

The controversy has raised questions about the proposed takeover of satellite broadcaster BSkyB by Rupert Murdoch's New Corporation, the ultimate owner of the NoW.

And broadcasting regulator Ofcom has now written to the chairman of the Commons culture committee highlighting its duty to ensure that anyone holding a broadcasting licence is a "fit and proper" person to do so.

'Cathartic moment'
The letter says "in considering whether any licensee remains a fit and proper person to hold broadcasting licences Ofcom will consider any relevant conduct of those who manage and control such a licence".

In January 2007 Goodman, and a private investigator, Glenn Mulcaire, were both jailed for plotting to intercept voicemail messages left for royal aides.

Mr Coulson, who was the paper's editor at the time, said he took "ultimate responsibility" for the scandal but insisted he was unaware of any phone hacking by his journalists.

Labour leader Ed Miliband: "This is an opportunity for big change."
Discussing his decision to employ Mr Coulson as his director of communications in 2007, the prime minister said: "I decided to give him a second chance but the second chance didn't work. The decision to hire him was mine and mine alone."

Mr Cameron admitted politicians were to blame for "turning a blind eye" to bad practices in journalism but said the controversy had led to a "cathartic moment" for both the media and politicians.

Afterwards the Labour leader Ed Miliband said the prime minister "clearly still doesn't get it".

He said: "His wholly unconvincing answers of what he knew and when he knew it about Mr Coulson's activities undermine his ability to lead the change that Britain needs."

Mitchell, connected to both governments. And Scotland Yard implicated as well in the whole cess pool.

Anybody see a connection?

Anybody still doubt that a whitewash was planned?

I don't think that the investigation into Madeleine's disappearance stood a chance. No wonder it was shelved without any proper questioning of the Tapas 9, as the rogotary interviews show. The FSS suddenly back pedalled too.

I always thought the whole thing stunk to high heaven.



victor, Mitchell's connection with Murdoch is also through working for Freud Communications, Murdoch's son-in-law. ms

James Murdoch could face criminal charges on both sides of the Atlantic

As phone hacking scandal leaves News Corp open to prosecution, James Murdoch looks less likely to inherit empire

Article history

James Murdoch and News Corp could face corporate legal battles on both sides of the Atlantic that involve criminal charges, fines and forfeiture of assets as the escalating phone-hacking scandal risks damaging his chances of taking control of Rupert Murdoch's US-based media empire.

As deputy chief operating officer of News Corp – the US-listed company that is the ultimate owner of News International (NI), which in turn owns the News of the World, the Times, the Sunday Times and the Sun – the younger Murdoch has admitted he misled parliament over phone hacking, although he has stated he did not have the complete picture at the time. There have also been reports that employees routinely made payments to police officers, believed to total more than £100,000, in return for information.

The payments could leave News Corp – and possibly James Murdoch himself – facing the possibility of prosecution in the US under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) – legislation designed to stamp out bad corporate behaviour that carries severe penalties for anyone found guilty of breaching it – and in the UK under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 which outlaws the interception of communications.

Tony Woodcock, a partner at the City law firm Stephenson Harwood, said section 79 of the 2000 Act enabled criminal proceedings to be brought against not only a company, but also a director or similar officer where the offence was committed with their "consent or connivance" or was "attributable to any neglect on their part". Woodcock said: "This could embrace a wide number of people at the highest level within an organisation, such as a chief executive – not just the individual who 'pushed the button' allowing the intercept to take place or someone (perhaps less senior) who encouraged or was otherwise an accessory to the offence, such as an editor."

While the UK phone-hacking scandal has been met with outrage in the US, the hacking itself is unlikely to prompt Washington officials into action. But because NI is a subsidiary of the US company, any payments to UK police officers could trigger a justice department inquiry under the FCPA.

The 1977 Act generally prohibits American companies and citizens from corruptly paying – or offering to pay – foreign officials to obtain or retain business.

The Butler University law professor Mike Koehler, an FCPA expert, said: "I would be very surprised if the US authorities don't become involved in this [NI] conduct."

He said the scandal appeared to qualify as an FCPA case on two counts. First, News Corp is a US-listed company, giving the US authorities jurisdiction to investigate allegations. "Second, perhaps more importantly, the act requires that payments to government officials need to be in the furtherance of 'obtaining or retaining' business. If money is being paid to officials, in this case the police, in order to get information to write sensational stories to sell newspapers, that would qualify," he said.

Koehler said the US justice department was increasingly keen to bring cases against individuals as well as companies, because prosecuting people brought "maximum deterrence". He added: "Companies just pay out shareholders' money. There's not much deterrence there." Tom Fox, a Houston-based lawyer who specialises in FCPA cases and anti-corruption law, said most corporate cases were settled before going to court. But for individuals who are successfully prosecuted the penalties are severe.

In 2009 the former Hollywood movie producer Gerald Green and his wife, Patricia, were jailed for six months in the first criminal case under the FCPA. The Greens, whose credits included Werner Herzog's Rescue Dawn, were convicted of paying $1.8m in bribes to a government official in Thailand in exchange for contracts to manage the Bangkok international film festival.

FCPA charges can carry up to five years in jail for each charge but the Greens' short prison sentence was not the harshest element of their sentencing. The "biggest hammer" prosecutors hold is forfeiture of assets, said Fox. "The Greens lost everything. Their house, savings, retirement plan. They are destitute now."

Bringing an FCPA case against the company would be far easier than bringing an action against James Murdoch. As yet there appears to be no evidence that he was directly linked to authorising the police payments. "If you don't know about it, that is a valid defence for an individual," said Koehler. In New York, media executives believe that with or without an FCPA case James Murdoch has already fatally damaged his chances of taking his father's crown.

One said: "There has been a sense of unravelling at News Corp for a while. The Daily, MySpace, Project Alesia – they look like News is chasing rainbows. [Rupert] Murdoch is looking old. It affects his ability to appoint an heir and I don't think James even has the backing of his family any more." Speculation is that Chase Carey, the chief operating officer, is most likely to take the top slot when and if the media mogul steps aside. "He is the ultimate Murdoch operative. He is not interested in the trappings of the media business. What would he do? Close the New York Post, sell the Times. Why not? It's a rational thing to do."

Hacking: 'Coulson's NOTW Deputy Arrested'

A former deputy editor of the News Of The World (NOTW) has been arrested by police investigating alleged phone hacking, say Sky sources.


Scotland Yard officers have now made nine arrests over phone hacking
Detectives are understood to have swooped at the home of Neil Wallis, 60, in west London.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said a man was taken for questioning at a local police station on suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications.
Mr Wallis joined the NOTW as deputy editor in 2003, and served under editor Andy Coulson - who was arrested by detectives last week.
He became executive editor of the Sunday tabloid in 2007, when Mr Coulson left.

Abi Titmuss is the latest celebrity to take legal action, say Sky sources
Mr Wallis was previously deputy editor at The Sun and editor of The People.
The move is part of Operation Weeting - the probe into mobile interceptions made by News International journalists.
It is the ninth arrest Scotland Yard has made since the investigation was launched and came as Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg insisted Rupert Murdoch must allow himself to be questioned by MPs over the scandal.
Meanwhile, Sky sources have said Abi Titmuss is taking legal action against News International, the Sunday tabloid's publisher, after her phone was allegedly hacked.

Andy Coulson was released on bail after being quizzed by police
A police statement confirmed the latest arrest was carried out at 6.30am.
"The man is currently in custody at a west London police station," it said.
"It would be inappropriate to discuss any further details at this time."
Mr Coulson, 43, was released on bail along with ex-royal editor Clive Goodman, 53, last week.
They were held by detectives investigating the phone hacking scandal and payments to officers.
An unnamed 63-year-old man was also arrested last week in connection with allegations of corruption and later released.

Are they going to go right up the ladder and stop before they get to Rebekah Brooks and James Murdoch? I would have thought their underlings best strategy would be to throw them swiftly under the bus - it's been obvious from the outset that that is the strategy that will be used by Murdochs and Brooks - "we are saddened that the high ethics and standards we have were undercut by ONE PERSON and now because of him we have to shut the paper. Well, maybe not one. Maybe three. or nine. Or everyone all the way up to the Deputy editor. But not US."

I hope the people being hung out to dry for this sing like canaries as to who put the top down strategy into place. Brooks has already admitted she knew of it "generally" not specifics. Well, that is how top down strategies work. You put it out there generally and let the operational people deal with the tactics.

These people need to do JAIL TIME.
