Home Affairs Committee to take evidence from senior police officers

12 July 2011

The session provides the Home Affairs Committee with an opportunity to question two of the senior police officers in post at the time of the original police investigation into the activities of Mr Glenn Mulcaire and to receive an update -without impeding the criminal investigation currently underway -on Operation Weeting, the re-investigation of the evidence seized from Mr Mulcaire. 

Committee Chair Rt Hon Keith Vaz MP said:

"The allegations revealed this week are extremely shocking. It is now essential that we uncover who knew what at which point in time at both the Metropolitan Police.
The committee will be raising these issues with police officers involved in the current and previous investigations. We will also seek to clarify why a significant variance of action was taken by mobile phone companies in the aftermath of the phone hacking revelations."
