The phone-hacking trial of Rupert Murdoch’s former British newspaper boss Rebekah Brooks was told on Tuesday there was no “smoking gun” evidence to prove she knew about illegal interception of celebrities’ voicemail messages. The seven-month trial, now nearing its end, has heard that Brooks condoned the practice at the now-defunct News of the World tabloid in an effort to discover exclusive stories. The scandal, which erupted three years ago, enmeshed large swathes of Britain’s political establishment due to the close links Murdoch and his lieutenents enjoyed with the main political parties.
