Not guilty says ex-News International security guard Daryl Jorsling

Security guard in News International phone hacking case charged with ‘conspiring to conceal documents and computers from police investigating allegations.

Daryl Jorsling, formerly a security guard at News International prior to the News of the World closing in July 2011, has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

The security operative is one of six people charged with conspiring to conceal documents, computers and electronic equipment from Metropolitan police officers when they were investigating allegations of phone hacking between 15 July 2011 and 19 July 2011.

Jorsling was arraigned at the Old Bailey on Tuesday morning (4th March) where he entered his plea.

Each of his alleged co-conspirators – Rebekah Brooks, the chief executive of News International at the time: Charles Brooks, Rebekah’s husband; Mark Hanna, NI's security chief; driver Paul Edwards; and security operative David Johnson – have already entered not guilty pleas.

Rebekah and Charles Brooks together with Mark Hanna are currently on trial. The others are due to appear in court this summer.

Mr Justice Saunders bailed Jorsling to a later date for the trial but said he would be unable to specify a date for listing.
