Mirror Review Whitewash Wonder

Trinity Mirror are set to announce that their review into phone-hacking has found that there was no widespread malpractice taking place at its newspapers, despite a growing list of allegations around Ulrika Jonsson, Frank Bruno and Noel Edmonds. An internal investigation whitewash? Sound familiar yet? 

Sky’s Mark Kleinman is reporting that:

“Paul Vickers, the group legal director of Trinity Mirror, told a meeting of the company’s board last month that a review lasting about six weeks had been completed and that there were no grounds for directors’ concern.”

This is despite clear allegations from a former member of staff at The People that, Kleinman reports, were not considered by Vickers. We know full well that the legal director had been made aware of the allegations in this letter from the Sunlight Centre. Add this to the fact the same former staff claim the Mirror Group’s HR department “urged colleagues to deny any knowledge of phone-hacking at the company on the same day that Clive Goodman was arrested in 2006.” Plenty here for the Guardian to really get their teeth into…
