Linked below is a transcript of the tape, played today in court today , between News of the World’s Royal Reporter Clive Goodman, and his editor Andy Coulson, around the 6th of November 2006. Goodman and private investigator Glenn Mulcaire. had been arrested in August and charged with hacking the voicemails of Royal aides a few weeks previously. They would both plead guilty at the end of November 2006, and were sentenced in January 2007. Coulson resigned from his editorship of News of the World the same day
NB: Tom probably refers to Tom Crone, in house News International lawyer: Henri is Goodman’s solictior, and Kelsey the barrister instructed by him.
Reblogged this on David Hencke and commented:
Read in full courtesy @ peterjukes the secretly taped conversation between Andy Coulson and hacker Clive Goodman two months before Goodman was jailed. It shows his concerns that at this stage the hacking investigation could easily be widened because of what the police have got from Glenn Mulcaire

So this implies Crone met with Goodman and his defence team (incl. KF), is there more explicit evidence that this is what happened?
Not as yet
Thanks. This is one reason I am interested,,, http://lawyerwatch.wordpress.com/2012/11/07/hacking-is-litigation-funding-compromising-the-lawyer-client-relationship/
Fascinating link and tricky issue, Richard. I hope we’ll revisit when the trial is over.
