Sky just posted and read out part of a letter or e mail to AC, very personal about how important the relationship was to her.

  There was a brief mention about the handling of the Milly Dowler case.  I think this trial will be an embarrassment for a few people and there will be an embarrassment of riches in what dirty little secrets are to be revealed.


 up to 6 months hey, that means some hefty barristers' bills, what do some charge, £ 800 per hour?

What is not speculation is that somebody thought LOL in a text message meant 'lots of love'. Tally ho!

They forgot about CCTV ! ! !
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/phonehacking-trial-rebekah-brooks-at-the-centre-of-coverup-operation-court-told-8920863.html
Rebekah Brooks and her husband, Charlie, were at the centre of a complex cover-up operation that used Hollywood-style code names, allusions to spycraft and the ruse of pizza deliveries as they attempted to keep incriminating evidence from the police, the phone-hacking trial at the Old Bailey heard today.
The former Murdoch executive, her husband and an array of security men – who used the script from the war thriller film Where Eagles Dare to communicate – were accused of working together to “pervert the course of justice” on the day Mrs Brooks was arrested in 2011 in connection with Scotland Yard’s phone-hacking investigation.
The operatives allegedly directed by News International’s former head of security, Mark Hanna, began their scheme initially at the Brooks’s Oxfordshire farmhouse and then later at the couple’s London address in Chelsea Harbour.
Andrew Edis QC, the chief prosecuting counsel, said: “Mrs Brooks knew she was likely to be arrested and, if she was, the police would have the power to search her property.” He added: “Arrangements were made to remove material from both these addresses [Oxford and London] with a view to prevent material coming into the possession of the police.”
The jury heard that security staff drove first to the Brooks’s country address near Chipping Norton the night before the former chief executive of NI was arrested. Material was removed and taken to the Murdoch organisation’s UK headquarters in Wapping.
When Mr and Mrs Brooks returned to London, she initially visited her solicitors and then went to Lewisham police station for a formal interview by officers from the Metropolitan Police’s Weeting investigation into phone hacking.
The cover-up operation, which was eventually discovered, the prosecution says, from phone records, CCTV from the Chelsea address, and a final flaw in its execution, was going on while Mrs Brooks was being interviewed by police. When the security team thought it had successfully completed its missions at the two addresses, a message was sent by one of the operatives which said: “Broadsword to Danny Boy. Pizza delivered and the chicken is in the pot.”
Mr Edis told the jury that the “Danny Boy” line was spoken by Richard Burton in the film of the Alistair Maclean thriller novel. “Burton was a field agent fighting the Nazis in Germany,” he added.

The prosecution said that as part of the complicated subterfuge at the Chelsea Harbour address, one of the security team posed as a pizza delivery man to avoid arousing suspicion during the operation. Contents of a text revealed a suggestion that the entire operation could be invoiced as a “pizza delivery”. Mr Edis told the jury: “Of course you cannot log any hours to ‘perverting the course of justice’. You have to say it’s something else don’t you?”   Mr 
Mr Edis said that part of the concealment plan was to hide material contained in a black bag and left behind a bin in the underground car park at Chelsea Harbour. One of the experienced organisers of the plan, on being told that it was apparently a success, texted back: “Fucking amateurs. We should have done a DLB or brush contact on the riverside. Cheers mate…”
This, Mr Edis said, was a reference to espionage terminology where DLB stood for “a dead letterbox” where items could be anonymously left and later picked up. But the bag left behind the underground bin was noticed the following day by a cleaner at the complex, who handed it over to the police. The jury were told that CCTV footage showed that when Mr and Mrs Brooks returned to their London flat, they and others were involved in a search to find out what had happened to the material left behind the bin.   big grin 

In another part of the prosecution’s opening, Mr Edis said that Mrs Brooks had taken steps – during the tense days surrounding the July 2011 decision to close the News of the World – to hide material that she believed could form part of the police’s investigations into phone hacking.
The court heard that she and her former personal assistant, Cheryl Carter, had removed seven boxes, containing Mrs Brooks’s personal notebooks, from NI’s company archive. The prosecution claimed that Mrs Brooks at the time knew there was a police investigation and a course of justice in existence which would be perverted if evidence was hidden.
The jury was told that Mrs Carter, along with her son Nick and Gary Keegan, the husband of Mrs Brooks’ other assistant, Deborah Keegan, went to the Murdoch company’s archive in Enfield in north London to collect seven boxes of notepads spanning 12 years of Mrs Brooks’ career at Wapping. It was alleged that the boxes were taken to Mrs Carter’s home.
Mr Edis said this group of people had been chosen to carry out this task two days earlier because they could be trusted. The jury were told the boxes of notebooks have never been found. During another part of the prosecution’s opening, Mrs Brooks was accused of taking a lead role in an email deletion policy inside News International in 2010.
Initially the deletion period was meant to cover the period up to 2007 when Clive Goodman, the former royal editor of the News of the World, and Glenn Mulcaire, a private investigator working for the paper, were jailed for phone hacking.
The jury were shown internal emails sent to other company executives where Mrs Brooks asked how the deletion process was progressing, and in one communication asked for it to be extended from 2007 to 2010.
When this suggestion was questioned she replied: “Yes, January 2010. Clean sweep, thanks.”
Mr Edis said: “So there’s a change in the date. Now it is anything before January 2010. Which happens to catch her entire time as a working editor at News International.” The prosecution will begin its first full days of calling witnesses on Wednesday.
The trial is expected to last until Easter next year.

Priceless.   Btw when the report came from the courtroom immediately about the B/C affair it gave dates which have since been revised I believe? Initially as 6 yr affair from 2004, then amended to ending that year, so started 1998.  Dates will be crucial for the activity of the pair and their level of involvement and joint subterfuge.

Mr Edis said Mulcaire pleaded guilty to conspiracy to unlawfully intercept mobile phone voicemail messages in November 2006. Earlier this year, in these proceedings, he also admitted three counts of conspiracy to commit phone hacking, along with a count of phone hacking, he added.
The barrister said that Miskiw, Weatherup and Thurlbeck had also each pleaded guilty to conspiracy to illegally access voicemails.
He said: "Now what we say about that is, using all of that information that I've just given about those pleas, that there was a conspiracy which involved a significant number of people and it was quite a substantial conspiracy.
"And that may help you to decide now. Because those names, they knew. So who else knew?"
Not good for the others.
Miskiw, Weatherup & Thurlbeck?

Jury in. Judge reminds the jury to ignore any reporting of the case they come across in the media. "Some reports ... may be misleading."
10:30 AM

Judge warns them that sometimes short headlines can be off the mark. "If you're like me you may just read the headlines and little else."

Yes Judge we know all about misleading headlines, and the story's that follow them.

Phone Hacking Trial: hearing resumes tomorrow after seasonal break

The trial of Rebekah Brooks, Andrew Coulson and five others will resume tomorrow at 2pm at the Old Bailey before Mr Justice Saunders and a jury.  This will be Week 9 of the trial which seems unlikely to conclude before the end of April.

There has been a seventeen day seasonal break in proceedings. Week 8 concluded on 19 December 2013 with prosecution evidence on royal voicemails.  The evidence contained the unsurprising “revelation” that voicemails left by members of the royal family had been hacked by the News of the World.

At the conclusion of the hearing Mr Justice Saunders told the jury that the trial was running 2 or 3 weeks behind but he hoped to catch up. He then said if “you are feeling like getting ill this winter the next two weeks would be a good time“.  He concluded by praising the jury, telling them: “You’ve been incredibly tolerant, thank you very much.“

Hacking trial: Cleaner found Charlie Brooks’s erotic magazine in bin bag, court hears div.slideshow img { display: none; }





1 / 1





Rebekah Brooks, former News International chief executive arrives for the phone-hacking trial at the Old Bailey court in London


A pornographic magazine called Lesbian Lovers, along with seven DVDs, were among items contained in bags belonging to the husband of Rebekah Brooks that were found in the underground car park of the couple's Chelsea home, the jury at the hacking trial in the Old Bailey were told.

.indy_googleads div {display:none;}
A tan leather briefcase and a black nylon holdall marked “World Economic Forum”, usually given to delegates attending the elite annual summit in Davos, Switzerland, were found inside a black plastic bin liner by a cleaner. The bag was behind bins in the underground area of the Chelsea Harbour complex.
The discovery by Fernando Nascimento on a routine rubbish collection was made the day after the former News International chief executive was arrested at a south London police station in connection with Scotland Yard's phone hacking investigation.
It was alleged by the prosecution in the November opening of the case last year that the bin liner and the bags it contained were hidden behind large rubbish containers in the carpark . This was described by the prosecution as part of an elaborate plan, involving the Brookses and security men working for News International, who had attempted to keep material from falling into the hands of the police who searched the couple's riverside apartment on the day of Mrs Brooks' arrest.
The discovery of the plastic bag and its contents the following day, July 18, 2011, and a subsequent call to the police, resulted in charges of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice being brought against Mr and Mrs Brooks, and the former NI security boss, Mark Hanna.
The three deny all charges against them.
A photograph of the insides of the two bags was shown to the jury. The contents were described to the jury as a Jiffy bag, the pornographic title and DVDs, along with a Sony laptop, an iPad and iPod, and other documents. An Apple laptop was also said to part of Mr Brooks' property contained in the bag.
Charlie Brooks arrives at the Old Bailey (Reuters)
Mr Nascimento, from Portugal,  gave his evidence to the court through an interpreter.
Questioned by Mr Brooks' counsel, Neil Saunders, Mr Nascimento denied he had tried to examine the documents in the bag, and had not attempted to access one of the computers out of sight of the CCTV cameras in the underground car park area.
Mr Saunders suggested to the cleaner that had he examined the full contents of the Jiffy bag inside he would have found the “Lesbian Lovers” magazine.  This was something “you would not have forgotten” Mr Saunders humorously suggested.
Through his interpreter, Mr Nascimento repeated to the court that he didn't understand English. Mr Saunders stated there was “not much writing on the magazine”.
Mr Nascimento told the jury that had he spotted the magazine he would have taken it.
It was also suggested to the Portuguese cleaner that a week earlier Mr Brooks had placed £1000 in an envelope that could have been in the briefcase. Mr Nascimento said he had not noticed any money. The £1000 cash did not feature on any inventory drawn up by police officers who investigated events at Chelsea Harbour.
CCTV footage from cameras in the carpark was again shown to the jury. It showed Mr Nascimento driving a small tractor, hitching bins to the tractor to form a small bins train, and the specific period when Mr Nascimento stopped to discover and later pick up the bag which was eventually handed to his supervisor and then to the estate boss who subsequently informed the police.
Mr Saunders questioned Mr Nascimento about a period of around 40 minutes that was absent from the CCTV footage. Mr Nascimento denied he had driven outside the CCTV coverage range to search the bags and to try and access the computers.
Allan Ramsey, the facilities boss at the Chelsea Harbour complex, was questioned about how the police were called in to investigate what the cleaners had found.
He told the court a cheque book inside one bag had Charlie Brooks name on it. Mr Ramsey said he knew the Brooks' flat had been searched by officers a day earlier, and he decided to inform the police about the find.
Charlie Brooks, according to Mr Ramsey, told him the items found had “been dropped off by a friend for him to collect and there had been some kind of mix-up.”
Mr Ramsey said Mr Brooks told him the mix up occurred about 8pm the previous evening.
The trial continues.
