A summarised version of the notebooks kept by the jailed private detective commissioned by the News of the World to illegally intercept phone messages will be published by the judicial inquiry into the hacking scandal.
Scotland Yard last week confirmed that 5,800 names out of a total of 11,000 pages of evidence had so far been identified from the cache belonging to Glenn Mulcaire. The redacted version will not name NOTW journalists who hired Mulcaire and still face criminal charges, but a coded system will reveal for the first time the extent of the hacking culture inside the now-defunct tabloid.
In judgments given by Lord Leveson yesterday, the Metropolitan Police and the CPS were refused control over which documents and witnesses could be seen and heard by the inquiry.
Lord Leveson denied his inquiry would prejudice future hacking trails.
But Lord Leveson said he would be "mindful" of the concerns of the police and the CPS –and he admitted there would be "surprising omissions" from the witness lists. Being a suspect in police investigations will exclude being a witness.
