List of Those Who Ordered Hacking to Remain Confidential

Actor Steve Coogan has names but can't reveal them


Glenn Mulcaire has finally revealed the names of the News of the World journalists who ordered him to hack into the phones of several public figures. But, barring a leak, only British actor Steve Coogan and his legal team will ever get to see the list. 

Earlier this month, Mulcaire lost his appeal of a court order forcing him to reveal the names as part of a lawsuit brought by Coogan. So on Friday, Mulcaire dutifully passed a list along to Coogan, but Scotland Yard moved quickly to prevent the names on it from being released publicly, according to the Guardian.
