Rupert and James Murdoch will be called to the Royal Courts of Justice in October for an official inquiry under oath reports The Telegraph.
Since the Murdochs’ appearance before Parliament in July, letters from former News of the World employees Tom Crone and Glenn Mulcaire suggest that, contrary to their testimony, the Murdochs were informed that phone hacking practices were used by more reporters than “rogue” royals editor Clive Goodman.
David Cameron, Rebekah Brooks, and Andy Coulson could also be expected to provide evidence. Lord Justice Leveson, who will hold the inquiry, said it could take up to a year. It will kick off at the end of this month with a series of seminars for senior journalists on topics including the law, ethics, practice and pressures of investigative journalism.
