British Prime Minister David Cameron has made an apology for appointing Andy Coulson as his director of communications after the latter was found guilty in the phone hacking scandal at the News of the World.

“I am extremely sorry I employed him. It was the wrong decision and I am clear about that,” Cameron said in a statement on Tuesday.

The British premier made the remarks after a jury at the Central Criminal Court of England and Wales, known as the Old Bailey, in London on Tuesday unanimously found the former News of the World (NoW) editor guilty of conspiring to intercept phone communications of celebrities, politicians, and crime victims between 2000 and 2006.

Cameron employed Coulson as his media chief in July 2007, six months after he was forced to resign as NoW editor over phone hacking scandal.

In his statement to the media, Cameron said he took “full responsibility for employing Andy Coulson.”

“I did so on the basis of undertakings I was given by him about phone hacking and those turn out not be the case. I always said if they turned out to be wrong, I would make a full and frank apology and I do that today. I am extremely sorry that I employed him. It was the wrong decision” the prime minister added.

Coulson was a high-profile news editor working for media mogul Rupert Murdoch.

Meanwhile, former Murdoch executive Rebekah Brooks was acquitted of phone hacking, bribery and corruption charges.

Brooks had been Coulson’s predecessor in the job, with both accused of hacking communications between 2000 and 2006.
