The Duke of Sussex aka Prince Harry is taking the media to task over intrusion into his private life which he claims crossed a line into illegality; He believes that Mirror Group Newspapers – publishers of the Daily Mirror, the Sunday Mirror and The People published details about his private life that could only have been obtained by hacking or other unlawful means; MGN is contesting the claim.

More than 100 people in total are involved in the High Court action; Harry’s is just one of four representative cases being heard.

He also has cases pending against the Sun and the Daily Mail’s Publishers – and in his statement to the court, he launched a broader attack on the press, warning that “democracy fails when your press fails to scrutinse and hold the government accountable, and instead choose to get into bed with them so they can ensure the status quo”.

That could almost be a mission statement for the Byline Times which grew out our executive editor Peter Jukes’ desire to tell the truth about the phone hacking scandal. Adrian Goldberg talks to Peter, and Byline Times editor Hardeep Matharu who published an editorialapplauding Harry for using his privileged position to speak out.
