Vaz hacking inquiry

This is what Keith Vaz had to say as he launched the Home Affairs Select Committee's inquiry into the phone hacking scandal today.

"The evidence of Assistant Commissioner John Yates today raised a number questions of importance about the law on phone hacking, the way the police deal with such breaches of the law and the manner in which victims are informed of those breaches.

“I hope that this inquiry will clarify all these important areas."

In particular the Inquiry will focus on:

  • The definition of the offences relating to unauthorised tapping or hacking in the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act, and the ease of prosecuting such offences.
  • The police response to such offences, especially the treatment of those whose communications have been intercepted.
  • What the police are doing to control such offences.
These were basically the issues that were raised during the committee session earlier today.

You could tell Vaz wasn’t satisfied with the answers because he was doing that eyebrow thing. You know what I mean.

The question must surely be...what does Rupert Murdoch have on the police?
