James Murdoch leaving GlaxoSmithKline board

GlaxoSmithKline says that James Murdoch has decided not to seek re-election to the drug company`s board.



London: GlaxoSmithKline says that James
Murdoch has decided not to seek re-election to the drug
company`s board.

GSK said Murdoch wished to focus on his duties as
chairman and chief executive of international operations at
News Corp in New York.

Murdoch has been under pressure over his role in the
phone hacking scandal at News Corp`s defunct Sunday tabloid,
News of the World.

Murdoch says he was unaware of any indication that
hacking was rife at the paper, a claim disputed by two former
colleagues.

Murdoch will leave the GSK board following the annual
general meeting on May 3.
