Phone-hacking jury sees whiteboards with diagrams, phone numbers

LONDON, Nov. 28 (UPI) -- Whiteboards featuring notations by private investigator Glenn Mulcaire were shown to jurors Thursday in London in the News of the World phone-hacking trial.

The five whiteboards bore diagrams, lists of telephone numbers, tasks and people's names, British newspaper The Guardian reported.

The boards were seized from Mulcaire's premises when he was arrested in 2006.

The largest of the boards had the words "mice, money, ideology, compromise, ego, binology," in the "spokes" of a clock-like diagram.

On another board, the name "Rebekah Wade" was written at 1 p.m. Wade is the maiden name of Rebekah Brooks, the former News of the World editor who is among four of the newspaper's former editors on trial for phone hacking.

Witnesses told the jury Wednesday Mulcaire was paid about $163,000 a year by News of the World. He was convicted on phone hacking-related charges in 2006.

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch shut down the News of the World after the hacking scandal was revealed.
