Murdoch papers paid £1m to gag phone-hacking victims

I didn't see this posted via search, sorry if has been.

Highlights;

• Conservative leader David Cameron's director of communications, Andy Coulson, who was deputy editor and then editor of the News of the World when, the suppressed evidence shows, journalists for whom he was responsible were engaging in hundreds of apparently illegal acts.

• Murdoch executives who, albeit in good faith, misled a parliamentary select committee, the Press Complaints Commission and the public.

• The Metropolitan police, which did not alert all those whose phones were targeted, and the Crown Prosecution Service, which did not pursue all possible charges against News Group personnel.

• The Press Complaints Commission, which claimed to have conducted an investigation, but failed to uncover any evidence of illegal activity.

Police have now said they won't re investigate this as theres no new evidence


But the Metropolitan Police said no new evidence had emerged since an original inquiry saw two men jailed in 2007


BBC

makes you wonder if Murdoch has bought off the flatfoots as well?
