Former UK PM Brown says News International worked with criminals.
Brown accused the corporation to illegally obtain information about his private life and of the shock he felt when it published a story about his baby’s ill health.
He said the Sunday Times newspaper had obtained access to his building society account and other personal files.
Brown also said he had seen evidence collated by the Guardian newspaper that News International were using known criminals to obtain private information.
“My tax returns went missing at one point, medical records have been broken into. I don’t know how all this happened but I do know … that in two of these instances there is absolute proof that News International was involved in hiring people to get this information,” he said in a BBC television interview.
“And I do know also that the people that they work with are criminals, criminals with records, criminals who sometimes have records of violence as well as records of fraud.”
He said he was devastated when told in 2006 by News International’s Sun newspaper that it was to publish a story that his newborn son Fraser had cystic fibrosis, a genetic disease which often leads to an early death for the sufferer.
The Sun was edited at the time by Rebekah Brooks, the chief executive of News International, the UK arm of the News Corp media empire.
The moral decay of the Post Christian western societies is a tragedy. Those who bell the culprits face an uphill task.
The major criminals have intermingled between the editorial offices and the Prime Ministers office. On day they are editors paid by Ruppert Murdoch, the vert next head of staff at 10 Downing Street.
The Global elite known how to protect each other. After the worst storm is over, nothing will have changed. No one have been sentenced to 10 years in prison. The main culprit’s have just been suspended, and the rotten cards will be reshuffled and distributed.
