Rupert and James Murdoch will be questioned under oath at the upcoming inquiry into the News of the World phone-hacking scandal. Andy Coulson and Rebekah Brooks may also be called. The inquiry will investigate “the culture, practices, and ethics of the press in the context of the latter’s relationship with the public, police, and politicians.” The proceedings, which will begin in October, will be held at the Royal Courts of Justice, and may be broadcast live to ensure transparency.
