The Prosecution Case continues
Back at the Old Bailey
Back in Court 12 for the #hackingtrial – today the jury will have no live witnesses, but go through a timeline with written evidence
There’s a problem with the sound today – so Bryant Heron for the prosecution sounds like a Dalek. He’s going through Mulcaire’s notebooks
Timeline – Delia Smith
Giving evidence – Operation Weeting Detective DC Oskiewicz
Edis is back on his feet and is calling a Weeting Detective to look at the Delia Smith timeline of phone hacking
A page of Mulcaire’s notes has addresses for Delia Smith and Wynn Jones.
The Weeting Detective confirms a number of pages with extensive personal details for the Bruno family
The Bruno family were friends with Delia Smith
There’s an email chain from Thurlbeck to Coulson about the tactics for covering the Delia Smith
There are three stories in NOTW following up the Delia Smith ‘incident in Norwich’
The Mulcaire notes have extensive details for Wynne Jones – including an entry for Hospital 08/05/05 Greg Miskiw tasking
Phone records are cross referenced between Mulcaire and Miskiw. Mulcaire then calls a variety of hospitals near Norwich
Mulcaire then calls Lucy Crabbe’s number – a former colleague and chef of Delia Smith 09/05/05
Calls from Mulcaire to Ian Christmas – who has a number very similar to Delia Smith.
06/04/05 a email from Neville Thurlbeck continuing to make inquiries about her
Mulcaire emails Thurlbeck with an invoice for background checks on Delia SmithIan Edmondson is also included in the email chain
There are undated Mulcaire notebook entries: Delia Smith and her husband have made witness statements on these

Delia Smith recognises the names of Pierre Bruno’s family on another set of Mulcaire’s notes
Delia Smith‘s written statement recognises the name of Lucy Crabbe, and the numbers of her agent and a personal assistant
Counsel for Rebekah Brooks cross examines Detect Oskiewicz

Counsel for Andy Coulson cross examines Detect Oskiewicz
Mr Langdale counsel for Coulson asks if this relates to Rebecca Loos. The Weeting DC can’t confirm this
Langdale asks if there’s any evidence Mulcaire actually accessed voice mail messages. DC says there’s call data evidence
There are no transcripts or recordings to suggest Delia Smith and associates were successfully hacked
Timeline – Eunice Huthart (Angelina Jolie’s body double)
Giving evidence – Operation Weeting Detective DC Hargreaves
Edis calls DC Hargreaves from Weeting for the timeline of Eunice Huthart (Angelina Jolie’s body double)
Edis reads Huthart’s statement to explain who she is to the jury. A former Gladiators star and then a stunt woman in various movies
Huthart has been a stunt double for Hollywood stars, including Jolie. She was working in LA with Jolie and Brad Pitt
Huthart says she had a PIN code, but it didn’t work every time she tried to used it. She often complained to vodaphone
Huthart confirms a Mulcaire handwritten entry: 06/07/05 she was filming Mr and Mrs Jones in LA
Mulcaire’s notes contain her ex-directory landline. Huthart was sharing a house with Angelina Jolie during the filming
Huthart recognises a Vodaphone PIN, and her direct dial messaging number. Its a ‘Nev’ tasking
10/07/05 NOTW article about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. 17/07 another about her child. Another in August. 25/09 another
Three more articles the following year. Edis goes through the call data between Mulcaire and Thurlbeck.
24/02/06 Another Mulcaire call to Huthart’s phone and then to NOTW, followed by an article.
There are four undated Mulcaire pages relating to Huthart, redacted by police to hide personal numbers
Huthart identifies six entries on Mulcaire’s notes: her name, number, acc no, direct dial numbers, and a reset PIN
Huthart recognises more details from another Mulcaire page and then a ‘target evaluation list’ of 16 people including Huthart.
Edis reads admissions or ‘agreed facts’ on the Huthart timeline
Huthart was working on Mr and Mrs Smith when Pitt and Jolie first started their relationship
Timeline – Wayne Rooney, Patricia Tierney and Laura Rooney
Giving evidence – Operation Weeting Detective DC Corinne Young
DC Corinne Young is called to give evidence on the Laura Rooney timeline – no relative of Wayne but assumed to be so
Laura Rooney was a beauty consult with no connection to Wayne. Agreed facts she was hacked 4 times by Mulcaire
A new timeline on Wayne and Laura Rooney is given to the jury at #hackingtrial
There are six articles from the Sun about Wayne Rooney, one concerning his suggested use of prostitutes 04-05
Edis takes DC Young to a Mulcaire notebook entry late August early September 2005, though the DC can’t remember how
Statement from Patricia Tierney who received a lot of attention for an untrue incident at a massage parlour in Liverpool
Patricia Tierney says she warned Rooney not to come to massage parlour because his life would be ‘destroyed’
Mulcaire has ‘Sun’ notation, £250 and entries for both Patricia Tierney and Wayne Rooney.
26/08 shows contact between Weatherup and Edmondson and Mulcaire. Then the timeline breaks off until 18th Jan next year
Mulcaire starts investigating Laura Rooney according to the timeline 18/01/06.
Mulcaire’s notebook has various personal details for Laura Rooney including mother’s maiden name
Another Mulcaire entry shows Wayne Rooney‘s mother’s name and her address.
Edmondson and Mulcaire make contact. Mulcaire then calls Miskiw. And then call data that he calls Laura Rooney
Mulcaire calls Laura Rooney’s Unique Voicemail Number, and so does someone at News International
There was no NOTW article (obviously) about Laura Rooney

28/07/06 story in NOTW. More stories about Rooney in both NOTW and the Sun. Mulcaire notes show continued interest in the footballer
Edis for prosecution reads Laura Rooney’s statement on Mulcaire notes 18/01/06 she was working in Harrods at the time
Laura Rooney recognises two of the numbers in Mulcaire’s notes
Counsel for Rebekah Brooks cross examines DC Corinne Young
Mr Laidlaw, QC, counsel for Brooks goes back over Laura Rooney timeline with DC Corinne Young
Laidlaw suggests the Sun reference in Mulcaire notebook is “puzzling”
Laidlaw notes that there are 8000 pages of Mulcaire notes, some in bound notebooks, other loose pages.
Laidlaw: “Among those 8000 pages this is the only reference to the Sun?” DC Young: “I don’t know that.”
Laidlaw QC: among the top left tasking references in Mulcaire notes, there is no reference to a Sun journalist. “This is an unusual entry”
Laidlaw hones in on the fact the Weeting DC was struggling to explain the confirmation of dates of some Mulcaire entries
26/08 to 01/09 2005 Laidlaw emphasises there is no call data evidence of Mulcaire contact with the Sun, and no evidence of payment to him
Laidlaw points out there is no evidence of a hack here, or an subsequent story in the Sun
Suggestion that Patrizia Tierney was offered £250 by the Sun has no evidence suggests Laidlaw. Confirmation she was offered £30k by NOTW
Laidlaw explains that the 6 Sun articles on Wayne Rooney in Aug 04 and April 05 follows a scoop by the Sunday Mirror on 24/08/04
The allegations against Rooney ended up in allegations against Patricia Tierney, and had much wider coverage
Laidlaw goes back to that ‘isolated’ Sun entry in Mulcaire’s books. By summer 2005 Tierney was in process of suing the Sun
Laidlaw says Tierney’s libel case against the Sun failed.
Laidlaw claims ‘pretty irrelevant and extraneous material’ has been put on the Laura Rooney timeline.
Laidlaw suggest that Mulcaire might have taken it upon himself to get involved in Tierney during the litigation
Laidlaw suggests Sun article on Rooney was common in other papers, and has nothing to do with NOTW hacking
A break
Further Prosecution evidence
Edis reads in the evidence of Patricia Tierney who recognises the name of her mother, a hospital number (she had health problems)
Tierney recognises her mothers date of birth, and two doctors. She says her mother had various calls from men purporting to be Red Cross
Tierney claims a reporter from NOTW offered her 30k but she refused
Edis confirms this is the only Mulcaire note with Sun in top left of the page and £250. Tierney says another magazine offered her that
Tierney recognises the name of both her ex and current husband in the Mulcaire notes
Tierney was also shown a document from Mulcaire’s computer and recognised her name. That concludes the Wayne Rooney timeline
