Phone hacking scandalbrings resignations
By JILL LAWLESSand MEERA SELVAAssociated Press
LONDON — Britain’sspreading phone hacking andpolice bribery scandal forcedtwo of London’s top policeofficers to resign in less than24 hours and prompted PrimeMinister David Cameron tocall for an emergency sessionof parliament.Scotland Yard chief PaulStephenson stepped downSunday night, followed outthe door today by AssistantCommissioner John Yates.Yates was the official whodecided two years ago not toreopen police inquiries intophone hacking and police brib-ery by tabloid journalists, say-ing he did not believe there wasany new evidence to consider.Detectives reopened theinvestigation earlier this yearand now say they have thenames of 3,700 potential vic-tims.The high-profile resigna-tions have made it even harderfor Cameron to contain theintensifying scandal that isthreatening his leadership andknocking billions off of RupertMurdoch’s global mediaempire.Parliament was to break forthe summer on Tuesday afterlawmakers grilled Murdoch,his son James and Murdoch’sformer British chief executiveRebekah Brooks in a highlyanticipated public airing aboutthe scandal. Cameron, how-ever, wanted lawmakers toreconvene Wednesday “so Ican make a further statement.”Cameron spoke in Pretoria,South Africa, on the first dayof a two-day visit to Africa.He had planned a longer tripbut cut it short as his govern-ment faces a growing num-ber of questions about its cozyrelationship with the Murdochempire during a scandal thathas taken down top police andmedia figures with breathtak-ing speed.Opposition leader EdMiliband said Cameron need-ed to answer “a whole seriesof questions” about his rela-tionships with Brooks, JamesMurdoch and Andy Coulson,the former News of the Worldeditor that Cameron later hiredas his communications chief.Coulson resigned from thatpost in January and is one of 10people who have been arrestedin the scandal.“At the moment, he seemsunable to provide the lead-ership the country needs,”Miliband said.Cameron insisted hisConservative-led govern-ment had “taken very decisiveaction” by setting up a judge-led inquiry into the wrongdoingat the now-defunct Murdochtabloid News of the Worldand into the overall relationsbetween British politicians, themedia and police.“We have helped to ensurea large and properly resourcedpolice investigation that canget to the bottom of what hap-pened, and wrongdoing, andwe have pretty much demon-strated complete transparencyin terms of media contact,”Cameron said.Still, Cameron is underheavy pressure after the res-ignations of Stephenson andYates, and Sunday’s arrest of Brooks — a friend of his —on suspicion of hacking andpolice bribery.Brooks was detained andquestioned for nine hoursSunday before being releasedon bail. Her lawyer, StephenParkinson, released a defiantstatement today professing herinnocence.
