No new charges in mobile phone 'hacking' investigation

The Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer QC, says there’ll be no new charges following an investigation into ‘voicemail hacking’ at the News of the World newspaper. He says a former reporter had refused to co-operate with police about claims he’d made in the New York Times, while a number of other witnesses either refused to co-operate with the police investigation, only provided short statements or denied any knowledge of wrongdoing.

As a result, he said “there is no admissible evidence upon which the CPS could properly advise the police to bring criminal charges”.
