Last week a jury was discharged after it failed to agree on whether former News of the World editor Andy Coulson, 46, and ex-NotW royal editor Clive Goodman, 56, conspired to commit misconduct in public office by paying police officers for two royal directories.
The Crown Prosecution Service announced today that it would still pursue both defendants over the two counts.
Prosecutor Andrew Edis QC said: "The CPS has taken the position to proceed with the retrial."
