TRAINER Charlie Brooks and his wife, former News International chief executive, Rebekah Brooks, are being charged with perverting the course of justice as part of the phone-hacking inquiry.
The couple released a statement on Tuesday morning in which they accused the Crown Prosecution Service of “posturing”, and said: “We deplore this weak and unjust decision.”
The charges relate to alleged offences in July last year including concealing documents and computers from police.
Brooks, 49, who returned to the training ranks last November following a 13-year absence, has been charged with two charges of conspiracy to pervert the justice while Mrs Brooks faces three.
Another four people have also been charged with the same offence.
