Former News International boss Rebekah Brooks and ex-Downing Street communications chief Andy Coulson will have their phone-hacking trial held in September 2013.
Brooks and Coulson are just two of the seven ex-News of the World staff members who were accused of conspiracy to access voicemails. The phone-hacking charge could involve around 600 victims.
The other former staff members from the now-defunct News of the World newspaper also facing trial include ex-managing editor Stuart Kuttner, former news editor Greg Miskiw, former head of news Ian Edmondson, ex-reporter James Weatherup and former chief report Neville Thurlbeck.
The trial date has been set for Sept. 9, 2013 and all of the defendants were released on bail.
Brooks, 44, is also facing another charge, as she’s being accused of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, also known as hiding evidence from the police. Her husband, Charlie, her chauffer Paul Edwards, former personal assistant Cheryl Carter, head of security at News International Mark Hanna, and security Staff Daryl Jorsling and Lee Sandell are also facing the same charges.
