Rupert Murdoch's Top Executives Fail To Get Phone Hacking Criminal Charges Tossed

June 28. 2013

Rupert Murdoch

[Article background: this is another in the series of phone hacking articles the Judiciary Report has published, regarding a scandal I broke first in October 2005, via a police complaint I filed with the Metropolitan Police in London, England. 80 people have been arrested by the Metropolitan Police since the time I filed the complaint. However, the Murdochs and other key conspirators remain free and the FBI has not arrested anyone, though the crimes began and continue in News Corp's New York headquarters]

The Guardian newspaper in London is reporting, "Rebekah Brooks, the former chief executive of News International, and Andy Coulson, David Cameron's former spin doctor, have lost a last ditch attempt to get their prosecution over alleged phone hacking dropped."

Rebekah Brooks

The Judiciary Report welcomes the news, as too many people have been violated by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp and its affiliates. The case needs to be heard in a court of law. Convictions need to be returned on this unlawful conduct that came straight from the top. My only regret is Murdoch is not the one on trial.

Andy Coulson

The judge stated in the ruling, "We must not be unrealistic. There can hardly be anyone in the country who does not know to whom this case applies." Yes, there is a great lack of realism at News Corp. When one detaches from reality, one runs the risk of thinking all misbehavior is acceptable and engaging in conduct that ruins lives - including your own - as we've see via the arrests in the case.

Andy Coulson and Rebekah Brooks fail to get phone-hacking cases dropped

Friday 28 June 2013 09.17 EDT - Former News International boss and David Cameron's former spin doctor go to court of appeal in bid to halt prosecutions. Rebekah Brooks, the former chief executive of News International, and Andy Coulson, David Cameron's former spin doctor, have lost a last ditch attempt to get their prosecution over alleged phone hacking dropped.

The court of appeal on Friday morning made the ruling after Coulson sought to have the hacking case against him removed on the grounds that the law did not extend to voicemails that had already been listened to...

Lord Judge allowed the names of the Weeting defendants to be reported today on the grounds that there was no one in the country who did not know who they were. "We must not be unrealistic. There can hardly be anyone in the country who does not know to whom this case applies." He also refused leave to appeal to the supreme court...
