Former News of the World editor Rebekah Brooks will sit before the Home Affairs Committee in London Tuesday morning, answering questions from British MPs regarding their knowledge of and involvement in the phone hacking scandal that brought down the tabloid.
Brooks, who was arrested over the weekend and released on bail, resigned from her role as chief executive of News International, the British leg of Rupert Muroch's media empire.
She will be asked questions by members of British Parliament concerning the phone hacking allegations. Brooks has repeatedly denied knowing about the phone-hacking and police-bribing that was occurring while she was editor of News of the World, but her arrest over the weekend might belie her claims.
Former News of the World reporters insist that not only did Brooks know of the unsavory practices that were going on, she endorsed them.
It was no place for anyone to pipe up and say: 'This doesn't seem ethical to me.' That would have made you a laughing stock, one journalists told Reuters.
Murdoch, his son James, also sat in front of the Committee.
This is the most humble day of my life, Murdoch said at the opening of the proceedings.
