JK Rowling, Sienna Miller to testify at Leveson Inquiry

London: Harry Potter author JK Rowling and actress Sienna Miller are set to record the evidence about their experiences of media intrusion to the Leveson Inquiry.

Former Formula 1 chief Max Mosley, who won a record 60,000 pounds in privacy damages over a News of the World story claiming he took part in a ‘Nazi orgy’, will also record his testimony for the inquiry into press standards.

The hearing will start with a closed session of testimony from an unnamed man referred to as ‘HJK’, whose phone was allegedly hacked after he began a relationship with a well-known figure.

Members of the public and journalists shall be excluded from the hearing room at the Royal Courts of Justice in London during his appearance.

There will be no audio or video feed to the separate overspill annexe or the inquiry``s website, but later, a transcript of HJK``s evidence will be posted online.

He will be followed by Miller, lawyer Mark Thomson, Mosley and Rowling.

Rowling had previously complained about photographs being clicked of her children.

Prime Minister David Cameron had set up the Leveson Inquiry in July in response to revelations that the now-defunct News of the World commissioned a private detective to hack murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler``s phone after she disappeared in 2002.
