Evidence suggests Associated Newspapers’ “journalists are criminals,” Prince Harry has stated in in court documents.
Prince Harry calls UK tabloid’s journalists ‘criminals’
Prince Harry has accused Buckingham Palace in court documents of withholding information from him about phone-hacking and says he is exposing the alleged wrongdoing by tabloid “criminals” out of love for his country.
In a witness statement to London’s High Court where he and six other figures are suing Associated Newspapers, the publisher of the Daily Mail, over phone-hacking and other privacy breaches, Harry again criticised the monarchy for its complicity with the tabloid press.
He said the institution had made it clear that members of the royal family did not appear in a court witness box as it “could open up a can of worms”.
In his statement, released to the media on Tuesday, he said he wanted to hold Associated Newspapers accountable for “everyone’s sake”.
