Now, dunno, but fascinating

The key witness at the centre of the case Prince Harry and other celebrity claimants have brought against the publisher of the Daily Mail has denied ever making a statement admitting phone hacking.

The Duke of Sussex, Sir Elton John, Baroness Lawrence and others are suing Associated Newspapers for allegedly stealing private details.

A key element of their case is a statement from 2021, in which Gavin Burrows, a private investigator, appears to have made detailed admissions that he was commissioned by the Mail on Sunday to target celebrities by hacking phones and bugging cars.

He said: “alot [sic] of you seem to be asking why I changed my statement. I did not make this statement.”

He added: “Have received no letters from any lawyers. A document of that magnitude would require a wet signature and me going to a lawyers.”

He claimed: “It is a cut and paste from my evidence of NOW and Sunday people and document was apparently electronically signed.

We’ll find out whether the court agrees. But a fascinating claim, no?

    Sadly I think we can guess the answer.
