Phone Hacking: Glenn Mulcaire Wants 'Persecution' By Victims To Stop

The private investigator at the centre of the phone-hacking scandal has written to the alleged victims who are suing the News of the World imploring them to stop "persecuting" him by suing him.

Legal representatives for Glenn Mulcaire argue that he has already served time in jail relating to another phone-hacking offence and that alleged hacking victims have nothing to gain by taking action against him personally.
