Ex-News of the World reporter charged with hacking
London: Police investigating the British media`s phone hacking scandal say a former News of the World journalist has been charged with hacking offenses.
Metropolitan Police said that 37-year-old Daniel Evans was charged today with conspiring with others to intercept voicemail messages of public figures and other charges, including perverting the course of justice for allegedly making a false witness statement in court.
Evans was arrested in August 2011. He is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates Court tomorrow.
News of the World, a Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid, was shuttered after it emerged that its journalists routinely intercepted voicemails of celebrities, royals and crime victims.
The scandal spread to other papers and triggered a police probe into wider media wrongdoing.
