Prosecutors will be opening their case against former News of the World editors Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson in Britain’s long-awaited phone hacking trial.
Brooks, Coulson and six others face charges stemming from the revelation that the Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid eavesdropped on the phone voicemails of celebrities, politicians, crime victims and others in its search for scoops.
Murdoch shut down the newspaper in 2011 when the scandal erupted and dozens of his staff have been arrested.
The trial at London’s Central Criminal Court began Monday with jury selection. On Tuesday the jury is to be sworn in and prosecution lawyer Andrew Edis will begin his case.
