Former prime minister Gordon Brown had his phone hacked and bank account breached by several British newspapers owned by Rupert Murdoch’s media empire, reports said Monday.
Paperwork seized from News of the World phone hacker Glenn Mulcaire by Scotland Yard had references to both Brown and his wife Sarah, according to an investigation by The Guardian.
The investigation found an agent acting on behalf of Murdoch’s Sunday Times posed as Brown to obtain his account records from Abbey National bank.
