Phone hacking and the law
The act of intercepting someone’s telephone calls is a criminal, rather thana civil, offence and it is punishable by a either fine or up to two years’imprisonment or both. Phone hacking also involves civil causes of action, whichallows its victims to sue for damages.
However, greater clarity surrounding the law governing phone hacking has beencalled for recently in light of an unprecedented phone-hacking scandal. NewsInternational, owner of the Sunday newspaper News of the World, has been in thespotlight following the interception of voicemail messages of celebrities andother public figures by journalists and a private detective working for thenewspaper.
What does the law say?
Under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000, the unauthorisedinterception of communications covers fixed and mobile telephone lines, emails,texts and pager messages. A person ‘intercepts’ a communication by making someor all of the content of the communication available, while being transmitted,to a person other than the sender or intended recipient of the communication.
The first major conviction under this act for phone hacking came in 2006 whentwo journalists were given prison sentences following the alleged surveillanceof several members of the Royal Family.
Although the police have apparently previously taken the view that thislegislation does not cover the hacking of voicemail messages unless they havenot yet been listened to by the intended recipient, prosecutors now argue thatit is an offence to hack into voicemail messages, irrespective of whether theyhave been listened to.
Unlike many similar offences and civil claims, there is no public interestdefence for anyone caught breaking the act for phone hacking and there is noprovision for anyone outside the police and security services to obtain theauthority to intercept calls or messages.
Issues surrounding the law governing phone hacking
Contrary to the law governing phone hacking, the Data Protection Act 1998makes it an offence to gain unauthorised access to information held onconfidential databases, telephone accounts and bank records, punishable by afine (rather than imprisonment) and with the availability of a public interestdefence to persons in breach of the act.
It has been argued that the legislation surrounding phone hacking is nowoutdated and does not provide a contemporary solution to contemporary problemsthat it is now dealing with. There is also concern about both the scope andunderstanding of current laws on phone hacking, with prosecutors and policestill arguing over the meaning of relevant sections of the Regulation ofInvestigatory Powers Act 2000.
Recent scandal and implications
The recent case involving News of the World has led to questions about howwidespread phone hacking really is in the British press and some clarity in thelaw has been called for in order to ensure that systematic and institutionalinvasions of privacy will no longer be tolerated.
Although freedom of expression and investigative journalism must remain animportant part of our society, it is possible that stricter regulations andguidelines may be put in place in light of recent revelations.
