Murdoch To Testify About His Remarks To Arrested Reporters

upert Murdoch has agreed to appear before a committee of the British Parliament to explain his remarks during a secretly taped talk to journalists at his London newspaper The Sun, during which he remarked that paying police officers and other officials for information had been part of the culture of Fleet Street. A statement issued by News Crop on Tuesday said that Murdoch looks forward to clearing up any misconceptions as soon as possible. British lawmakers are set to begin a six-week recess, and it was unclear when Murdoch's appearance might be scheduled. Earlier, London police had indicated that they would like to get their hands on the recording (in which Murdoch remarked at one point that they were totally incompetent and called their investigation the biggest inquiry ever over next to nothing.) Reports have also indicated that the U.S. Justice Department is looking into the possibility that the alleged payments to police and foreign officials by an American company constitutes a violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
