LONDON - A private detective jailed for illegally intercepting voicemail messages on behalf of a journalist at one of Rupert Murdoch's British tabloids on Friday gave lawyers the names of the people he says ordered him to carry out the phone hacking.




Glen Mulcaire's lawyer, Sarah Webb, said no details would be released before legal moves by her next week to prevent their publication while a police probe continues into allegations of phone hacking by the now closed News of the World newspaper.




Disclosure of the names would add pressure on News International, the British newspaper arm of Murdoch's News Corp and shed further light on how widespread phone hacking was at the tabloid.




Mulcaire, jailed in 2007 along with paper's royal reporter Clive Goodman, had been ordered to hand over the details by a court judge.
