If a Bulger killer was hacked, how did Mulcaire get his top secret number? | Hacking inquiry – Hacked off
Nobody in 2002 can have been in the slightest doubt that any attempt to breach the secrecy around Thompson was wrong, and equivalent to raising two fingers to the criminal justice system. But, as the Sunday Times was the first to report last year the News of the World went ahead anyway. (This was the same year that it hacked Milly Dowler’s phone.)
If James Bulger’s relatives are angry about the consequence, they should ask which journalist at the News of the World commissioned Mulcaire to do the hacking, because that is the person who is really responsible for their current distress.
