LONDON (AP) — The lead prosecutor at Britain's phone-hacking trial says there was "a rotten state of affairs" at the top of the News of the World — and jurors will have to decide who knew about it.
Andrew Edis began summing-up Wednesday at a trial that has lasted more than six months.
Seven people, including former News of the World editors Andy Coulson and Rebekah Brooks, are on trial over wrongdoing at the now-defunct Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid. All deny the charges.
Murdoch closed the newspaper in July 2011 after evidence emerged that its staff had eavesdropped on voicemails of celebrities, politicians and even crime victims.
Edis said the question the jury had to answer about Brooks and Coulson was: "Did they know what was going on?"
