J.K. Rowling to testify at Brit hacking scandal inquiry
Washington: ‘Harry Potter’ author J.K. Rowling has been included on a list of 46 “core participants” who will testify in a top-level inquiry into the British telephone hacking scandal.
An attorney will be allowed to accompany each participant and they can also cross-examine the witnesses during the inquiry, Contactmusic reported.
Before focusing on the specific allegations, the inquiry will look into the press standards in general.
Other than Rowling, the list by Lord Justice Brian Leveson includes politicians, sports stars and celebrities like actors Hugh Grant and Sienna Miller.
