Audit controls urged for the press

Recommendations may help prevent another scandal involving newspapers and magazines

Rigorous audit controls for payments to external contributors are among the
stern recommendations of the Press Complaints
Commission
following the News of the World royal phone tapping
scandal.

The PCC has issued the recommendations in an effort to avoid a repeat
offence, which saw News of the World reporter,
Clive
Goodman
, jailed for four months for illegally accessing phone messages
belonging to royal household members.

Former footballer Glenn Mulcaire, who was given a £105,000 retainer and given
more than £12,000 in secret payments from Goodman, was also jailed.
