Cameron: "James must answer" Growing suspicions about the son of Murdoch

"It 'clear that James Murdoch now has to respond in Parliament," said British Prime Minister, David Cameron. Everything after the heavy claims of two executives from the News of the World who have questioned some of the deposition Tuesday to the House of Commons made by the son of the tycoon.

The former editor of Colin Myler and the former attorney Thomas Crone News International, have argued that James had misled Parliament about what he knew about the case of refund the head of the Association of Professional Football Players Gordon Taylor. News International in 2008 to Taylor poured a huge compensation for the intrusion into his answering machine.

The payment was authorized by the same James, who was justifying, explaining that the agreement had been suggested by his lawyers. During his hearing in the Commons, the young Murdoch said to know nothing, believing that it was the misbehavior of one journalist. Above all, he denied having viewed the so-called "email Neville," which contained transcripts of voicemail messages in spying.

This e-mail, addressed to the then chief editor of the tabloid Neville Thurlbeck, is evidence that other reporters were involved in illegal wiretapping. According to Crone, and Myler, however, James was aware of this email. "Neville inform him of the email that was provided by the lawyers of Gordon Tayler - have said the two - the reconstruction made by James Murdoch on what he was told Taylor when it authorized the compensation is wrong." "If Myler Crone and say the truth is the most significant moment of this whole story, at least so far," said Tom Watson, Labour at the BBC.

Even Scotland Yard has received the request of the Parliamentary Labour Party to assess the potential contradictions in the statement of James Murdoch to the municipalities and "is considering". The Metropolitan Police has confirmed the same.
