British Phone-Hacking Scandal Inquiry, J.K. Rowling Testimony J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books, testified before a British committee looking into phone hacking and British media culture. She talked about being chased from home by the press and how one of the manuscripts from her book was stolen from the printers.

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
