UK Police Investigate Trinity Mirror Over Phone Hacking

By: The Irish Times

British police are investigating whether Sunday Mirror newspaper publisher Trinity Mirror is criminally liable for alleged phone hacking by former journalists, widening a probe that had centred on Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp.

Trinity Mirror said today it was being investigated by London’s Metropolitan police and it was too soon to say how the matter might progress.

The practice of phone hacking by journalists to illegally obtain material for stories came to light two years ago at News Corp’s now closed News of the World title.
