UK MPs to publish damning report on NOTW phone-hacking allegations

London, Tue, 01 May 2012 ANI

London, May 1 (ANI): British lawmakers will publish a report into allegations of phone-hacking at the now defunct tabloid News of the World.

The cross-party Commons Media Committee recently questioned journalists and bosses at the now closed newspaper, as well as police and lawyers for hacking victims.

According to The BBC, committee's report will consider the role of James Murdoch, who has denied knowing of wrongdoing at the paper, and other former News International executives.

The committee of MPs started its inquiry in July 2011 about the extent of hacking at the tabloid newspaper, with reported victims including the murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler and the families of victims of the 7/7 London bombings.

John Whittingdale, the Conservative MP who heads the media committee, has indicated the report would seek to address the central issue of whether there was a cover-up at the newspaper and whether statements made to the committee by witnesses were correct.Report would not draw a line under the phone-hacking affair, although it was likely to criticise James Murdoch.

Murdoch has said he did not know about any wrongdoing, but took 'his share' of responsibility for not uncovering it earlier.

He gave evidence alongside his father Rupert, who at one point during the hearing was attacked by a man who threw a paper plate of foam at him. (ANI)
