Rebekah Brooks Pleads Not Guilty to All Phone-Hacking, Corruption Charges (THR)
Rebekah Brooks, the former CEO of News International, on Wednesday pleaded not guilty to all criminal charges made as the result of investigations into phone hacking and corruption allegations. The pre-trial hearing focused on five charges against her in three areas — alleged phone hacking, conspiracy to make illegal payments to public officials in return for stories and attempts to pervert the course of justice at the height of the phone-hacking scandal. Brooks denied all the charges, which focus on her time at the U.K. publishing arm of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., in particular her time as editor of the News of the World and editor of the Sun. HuffPost / AP Brooks answered “not guilty” in a firm voice at a court hearing at London’s Southwark Crown Court, where she appeared along with a dozen others, mostly former News International employees, facing similar charges over the scandal that rocked Britain’s establishment. BBC Other News of the World employees who also pleaded not guilty to charges related to phone hacking included former assistant news editor James Weatherup and former managing editor Stuart Kuttner. All the defendants were released on bail and are due to face trial later in the year.
