Knightley And Grant Targetted In Phone Scandal
KEIRA KNIGHTLEY and HIGH GRANT were yesterday (12AUG06) named as the latest alleged victims in an illegal phone hacking scandal in Britain. Journalist CLIVE GOODMAN has been charged with eight counts of illegally intercepting telephone voicemail messages between 3 January (06) and 30 May (06), over claims he was involved in phone tapping at PRINCE CHARLES' London residence Clarence House. And officers at London police headquarters Scotland Yard's anti-terrorist branch believe phone calls made by Knightley and Grant may also have been targetted. In his defence, Goodman - who is due to appear at London's Horseferry Magistrates' Court on Wednesday (16AUG06) - says, "Dozens of recent exclusives come from illegal tapping. I understand that there are 250 other journalists involved in this investigation."
