Defending Rupert Murdoch's pledge to staff, a spokesman for News Corp told Channel 4 News:
– News Corp
No other company has done as much to identify what went wrong, compensate the victims, and ensure the same mistakes do not happen again.
The unprecedented co-operation granted by News Corp was agreed unanimously by senior management and the board, and the MSC continues to co-operate under the supervision of the courts.
Rupert Murdoch has shown understandable empathy with the staff and families affected and will assume they are innocent until and unless proven guilty.
