The mother of a British soldier killed while on duty in Iraq said those involved in the hacking scandal should be brought to court.
Rose Gentle, who son Fisilier Gordon Gentle was killed by insurgents in 2004 in Iraq, told the U.K.'s The Telegraph that she thinks Rupert Murdoch's subsidiary News of the World should be shutdown.
In a video interview with The Telegraph, Rose Gentle said she felt sick about the allegations and that if they are true, she would like to see everyone responsible go to court. Rose Gentle also said if the allegations are true, then she hopes no one buys that newspaper.
It is alleged that journalists from the British Tabloid News of the World hacked in to the voicemail of a missing teen, who was eventually found murdered. There are other allegations that the newspaper is involved in hacking into the phones belonging to celebrities, politicians and the father of a victim killed in the London bombings on July 7, 2005, according to a CNNMoney report.
British Prime Minister David Cameron is supporting calls for public inquiries into the reporting practices of the journalists at News of the World, and why a previous police investigation didn't reveal the allegations now surfacing, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Murdoch, who is the chairman of News Corp., of which the tabloid is a subsidiary, issued a statement Wednesday calling the allegations deplorable and unacceptable. He said the company must fully and proactively cooperate with police investigation.
Murdoch also said his executive Rebekah Brooks, a former editor at News of the World, will continue her leadership despite allegations of phone hacking and police payments.
We are committed to addressing these issues fully and have taken a number of important steps to prevent them from happening again, Murdoch stated in the press release.
Murdoch has appointed Joel Klein, to provide oversight and guidance, and Viet Dinh, an independent director, will work with Klein to keep the News Corp.'s Board fully advised.
