See also

Scotland Yard read Piers Morgan his rights and interviewed him in the investigation into the phone hacking scandal plaguing numerous U.K. newspapers. The Metropolitan Police as well as Morgan have confirmed that the interview took place. The interview was conducted as “under caution” which is the U.K. term for an interview that is done when they suspect a person of a crime.

Piers Morgan edited the Daily Mirror from 1994 until 2004. At that time photos Morgan claims he didn’t know where staged were published. The staged photos showed Iraqi prisoners being abused by British soldiers.

So far, six members of Morgan’s staff at the Daily Mirror have been arrested in the phone hacking scandal. Morgan has vehemently denied knowing that the phone hacking was taking place.

Back in 2007, the former America’s Got Talent judge spoke with the Press Gazette. During that interview he said that hacking was “an investigative practice that everyone knows was going on at almost every paper in Fleet Street for years.”

After cooperating with the Scotland Yard interview, Piers Morgan released a statement saying, “This was further to a full witness statement I had already freely provided. I attended the interview as requested.
