Victims of alleged phone hacking testified about their experiences. Parents of Milly Dowler retold the story of their missing daughter and their false hope in believing their daughter was still alive. They also talked about how they felt when they first heard that Milly’s voicemail was hacked, their resulting legal problems, and meeting with officials from News of the World.

Prime Minister David Cameron appointed Lord Justice Leveson on July 13, 2011, to investigate the role of the press and police in the phone-hacking scandal surrounding the defunct British newspaper News of the World. The hearings were divided into four modules, or phases: 1) the relationship between the press and the public, and phone-hacking and other potentially illegal acts 2) relationships between the press and police 3) the relationship between press and politicians 4) recommendations for improved policy and regulation. close
