Last month, Mr Bezos accused the newspaper’s owner of trying to blackmail him with the threat of publishing “intimate photos” he allegedly sent to Ms Sanchez unless he did not publicly state that the tabloid’s coverage of him was not politically motivated.
After the investigation, Mr De Becker concluded “with high confidence that the Saudis had access to Bezos’ phone and gained private information.”
In an article for The Daily Beast website, Mr De Becker said the parent company of the National Enquirer, American Media Inc, had privately demanded that he deny finding any evidence of “electronic eavesdropping or hacking in their newsgathering process.”
He added: “As of today, it is unclear to what degree, if any, AMI was aware of the details.”
