U.K. Media Ethics Panel to Question Former News Corp. Executive Rebekah Brooks
The Leveson Inquiry will hear from the longtime ally of Rupert Murdoch and former News of the World editor Andy Coulson next week.
LONDON -- The Leveson Inquiry into U.K. media ethics will question Rebekah Brooks, the former CEO of News Corp.'s U.K. newspaper unit News International, next week.
The ethics investigation, led by Judge Brian Leveson, unveiled the list of witnesses for next week on Thursday afternoon, and there will be much attention for the appearance by Brooks and another person that has been in the spotlight amid the phone-hacking scandal.
Brooks will appear all day Friday. The day before, Andy Coulson, former editor of News of the World and later communications adviser of Prime Minister David Cameron, will appear in front of the ethics panel that has explored the relationship of the British media with the public, police and politics.
Last week, News Corp. chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch and son and deputy COO James Murdoch appeared at the inquiry.
