News Corp. Faces FBI Probe Over 9/11 Victim Hacking Allegations

The FBI has opened an investigation into whether News Corp. hacked into the telephones of victims and their families of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, reported the LA Times.

U.S. Representative Peter King (R-NY), chairman of the House of Homeland Security Committee, sent a letter to the FBI asking that they investigation whether Rupert Murdoch’s company used bribery and illegal wiretapping to access the voice mails of Sept. 11 victims.

Several elected officials have also asked FBI Director Robert Mueller to investigate News Corp.’s possible violation of the law by paying police for stories, reported Bloomberg.

The FBI’s probe came after claims emerged that the Murdoch media empire also hacked into the telephones of various individuals living in England.

Last week, Murdoch closed the 168-year-old The News of the World tabloid after reports revealed the publication’s employees hacked voice mails of murder victims.

King said, “If these allegations are proven true the conduct would merit felony charges for attempting to violate federal statutes related to corruption of public officials and prohibitions against wiretapping,” reported the LA Times.

According to the New York Times, the FBI field office in New York will look into the allegations under a squad that investigates cybercrimes and another that focuses on public corruption and white-collar crimes.

On July 19, Murdoch, 80, and his son, James Murdoch, are scheduled to testify before the U.K. Parliament regarding the hacking allegations.

News Corp. stock fell 2.8 percent in Australia, a total of 12 percent this week, says Bloomberg.
