A journalist from Kilburn appeared in court today charged with offences linked to phone hacking after being on police bail for two years.
Dan Evans, 37, of Brondesbury Villas, appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court to face two counts of conspiring with others to intercept communications in their transmission, one of conspiracy to commit misconduct in public office and one of perverting the course of justice.
The ex-News of the World reporter was arrested in August 2011 and charged yesterday.
The Crown Prosecution Service has said he is charged with four offences in connection with the phone-hacking investigations.
The first is an allegation of conspiring to intercept “the voicemail messages of well-known people and those associated with them” between February 28, 2003 and January 1, 2005. The second is the same offence between April 30, 2004 and June 1, 2010.
