UK hacking scandal enters new phase28/08/2011 12:30
Comedian Steve Coogan's lawyers said they received the information in a letter, which was made public in accordance with a court order.
Private detective Glenn Mulcaire revealed the names of News of the World staff who instructed him to carry out phone hacking, his solicitor confirmed.
Mulcaire had applied for permission to appeal against the order, which was made in February, but this was denied and he was compelled to pass over the details.
His solicitor Sarah Webb, from Payne Hicks Beach, said she could not reveal who the NOTW employees were because of "confidentiality issues".
Schillings, which is representing Coogan, has agreed not to reveal the names yet, to give Payne Hicks Beach a chance to apply for a court order stopping their release.
Mulcaire was ordered to reveal who instructed him to access Coogan's voicemails, as well as those of celebrities including PR guru Max Clifford and model Elle Macpherson.
He was jailed for six months in 2007 for intercepting messages left on royal aides' phones.
A spokeswoman for News International said the firm had no comment.
