Pattaya: James Murdoch ‘knew about’ News of World phone hacking

Via: Pattaya Daily News

James Murdoch was told in 2008 about an email that showed phone hacking at the now-defunct News of the World tabloid was more widespread than his company claimed, the paper’s former lawyer said.

The claim heaped fresh pressure on the 38-year-old, the son of Rupert Murdoch and chairman of the British newspaper subsidiary that published the tabloid, after he denied at a parliamentary hearing in July any knowledge of the email.

James Murdoch is increasingly becoming the focus of the phone-hacking scandal which prompted the closure in July of the 168-year-old tabloid and has rocked his family’s News Corp. empire.

Tom Crone, former legal manager of the News of the World, said Tuesday that he informed Murdoch about the email in a 15-minute meeting in 2008, when they discussed a lawsuit brought against the paper alleging phone hacking.

blah, blah, blah


The Pattaya connection?

Well apparently Jimmy is having a little ‘cash flow problem’ at the moment’; so it tuns out he’s going to be sharing a Pattaya flat, with his boyhood chum (see photo).

Oh my, how the mighty have fallen.
