Murdochs to appear before Leveson Inquiry
London: News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch and his son James will give evidence next week to Britain`s media ethics inquiry.
The inquiry, headed by Lord Justice Brian Leveson, was launched to determine why an initial 2006 police investigation into phone hacking at Murdoch`s News of the World tabloid failed to uncover the scope of the problem.
The Leveson Inquiry has heard extensive sworn testimony about gross criminal acts committed by tabloid reporters, including descriptions of how reporters hacked into the phone of a missing girl later found murdered.
The Leveson Inquiry said Thursday that James will appear on Tuesday and Rupert will appear on Wednesday and possibly Thursday.
