Former News of the World Editor Piers Morgan testified via a satellite link before a British committee on phone hacking and the culture of the British press. He said he had no reason to believe there was phone hacking at the tabloid paper while he was in charge.

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
