Prince Harry is expected to give evidence at a high profile court case alleging illegal activity by tabloid newspapers targeting him and other celebrities.
Tabloids’ illegal behaviour covered up – Harry’s lawyer
Senior executives of Mirror Group Newspapers authorised widespread illegal activity at their tabloids including the targeting of a British royal, the lawyer for Prince Harry and others suing the publisher says.
Harry, King Charles’ younger son, and more than 100 others including celebrities and high-profile figures, are suing the publisher of the Daily Mirror, Sunday Mirror and Sunday People.
They allege the papers habitually accessed private information by phone-hacking, deception and other illicit means between 1991 and 2011.
MGN, now owned by Reach, is contesting the allegations, arguing some claims have been brought too late, and rejecting most of the others. It denies any senior figures had knowledge of unlawful acts.
