Former News International chief executive to Leveson Inquiry evidence

  • Rebekah Brooks, the former chief executive of News International, is to give evidence at the Leveson Inquiry into press ethics.

    Brooks resigned last year after a phone hacking scandal led to the closure of British tabloid, the News of the World.

    She was later arrested over hacking and corruption allegations as well as conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

    The Leveson Inquiry’s focus will be on the relationship between the media and politicians.

    Brooks is expected to be quizzed on her relationship with British Prime Minister David Cameron and his predecessors.
