Will Mulcaire confess all? Church’s priest says he may be victim of hacking – Crime – UK – The Independent
Yesterday it was confirmed that Mark Thompson, the lawyer who represented Sienna Miller and Jude Law in their successful claims against News International, has been hired by Father Reardon. At his home in Usk, Father Reardon refused to comment.
Ms Church was brought up a Catholic, and during the “lowest moments” of NOTW’s years of hounding, the advice and guidance offered by the parish priest is said to have been invaluable.
In court last month the family’s lawyer, Mike Brookes, described how the Church family were effectively under constant surveillance for years and that the tabloid gained access to the medical records of Charlotte Church’s mother, Maria.
Father Reardon is understood to have been a key factor in helping the family cope with Maria Church’s attempted suicide and the trauma that followed.
