News Corp. Turned Evidence Over to U.S. Justice Department

Updated on

April 25 (Bloomberg) -- News Corp. turned over evidence of “suspected illegality” to the U.S. Department of Justice as well as London police, company Chairman Rupert Murdoch said.

The information has led to the arrests of “a number of employees” at the company’s News International unit, Murdoch said in a witness statement to the Leveson inquiry that was triggered by the phone-hacking scandal at the company’s now-defunct News of the World tabloid.

Alisa Finelli, a Justice Department spokeswoman, declined to comment on the investigation. Brendan Sullivan of Williams & Connolly LLP in Washington, who was hired by News Corp. in July, said in an e-mail he has a “long-standing practice of not commenting on client matters.”
