In what seems like a never ending saga the News of The World phone hacking scandal took another twist over the weekend, Glenn Mulcaire, the so-called private investigator, has revealed the names of News of The World employees who gave him the instructions to carry out phone hacking duties prior to the scandal leak and his arrest.
Back in 2007 when Mulcaire and then NOTW editor Chris Goodman were jailed, News International made a global statement that no other member of staff was involved with the phone hacking. This latest move from Mulcaire may cause further revelations to appear in what seems an endless, ongoing investigation.
At Insight, we are taking a very keen interest on the way this scandal is evolving and developing as it may lead to changes within the private investigator industry. It remains to be seen if licensing changes or Government ruling will come into play, if this investigation continues to be a prolonged one due to new evidence brought up through new weekly revelations who would bet against changes?
We certainly would not and would fully support them!
Any action that reveals and stops private investigators from offering and carrying out illegal services is one that will benefit our industry as a whole and anybody requiring investigation services.
