The News of the World looks set to close after the scandal of phone hacking rocked the paper.

Reports suggest that allegations of phone tapping of murder victims and the relatives of dead soldiers has left the owners News International with no option but to end production of the paper.

The allegations have also become headline news in Scotland after several figures involved with the paper testified at the perjury trial of Tommy Sheridan.

Yesterday Labour MP Tom Watson and Tommy Sheridan’s defence lawyer, Aamer Anwar, called on police to investigate News of the World witnesses who testified at the former MSP’s perjury trial.

The calls come as it emerged that prosecutors in Scotland are to re-examine the testimony given by former News of the World editor Andy Coulson at the trial.  The Crown office has also directed Strathclyde police to re-examine evidence given by other witnesses at Mr Sheridan’s trial.

The new revelations come in the wake of the phone hacking scandal currently engulfing the paper amidst further suggestions that the newspaper paid police officers for information.

Speaking at a press conference yesterday Mr Anwar welcomed the announcement saying: “We welcome that, it’s a demand we have been making over the course of the last week.”

“Extremely serious allegations have been made against Andrew Coulson and against other individuals from the News of the World.”

Tommy Sheridan was jailed for three years in January this year after being convicted of lying under oath at an earlier court case against the News of the World.  At the trial Mr Coulson, the former director of communications for Prime Minister David Cameron, testified that he had no knowledge of payments to police officers.

However emails have since surfaced that appear to cast doubt on these claims.  Scottish News of the World editor Bob Bird was also questioned at the trial but denied being part of an “illegal culture of phone-tapping”.

Mr Anwar highlighted the £ millions spent on investigating Mr Sheridan and suggested that if the News of the World executives were suspected of breaking the law then they should be “investigated and prosecuted and sent to prison.”

The news comes as police reveal that they are looking through a list of some 4000 potential victims, many thought to be relatives of soldiers killed in action.

It prompted the Royal British Legion to suspend its links with the paper and with more advertisers breaking ties with the NotW there were warnings that the paper faced long term significant financial damage.

Sainsbury’s, Specsavers, Flybe and Boots are reported to have joined car giant Ford in breaking ties with the Sunday tabloid.  The UK government is also said to be considering whether to suspend advertising with the News of the World.

 

There have been suggestions that Newsnet Scotland is to move from its current .com domain address.  Let us assure our readers that no such plans are being consideredHowever a recent internal disagreement has led to some technical difficulties and a few recent comments have been lost.

  1. A wee bit ironic that Newsnet appears to have floundered at the same time as the NOTW.

    Am I being paranoid, or is the hand of the states black arts visible here as the site appears to be coming apart?

    Anybody there?

  25. You could not make it up. The NOTW, it seems, deleted thousands of e-mails from their archive when they got wind of the imminent investigation.

    Why would the police announce the investigation without first seizing all possible incriminating material and computers at the NOTW offices? This should have been normal practice.

    • Arraniki, it may just be a temporary situation. With all that has apparently been happening behind the scenes it may be that “our” editorial have reverted to treating ALL posts as “newbies” for a short period of time until things settle down.

      Just my personal perception of the current situation you understand. No doubt those in control will put us all in the full picture in due course.

      Indeed, looks to me as if Murdoch has sacrificed the NoTW to save Rebekah Brookes from any possible Police charges.

      Murdoch no doubt knew or at the very least James Murdoch would have known. There is absolutely no chance that he knew nothing considering the possible legal challenges his company could be facing if caught.

    Onlin Ed has from the beginning put a lot of time and effort in to this venture along with all the others on the team. Best of luck.

    On topic, Murdoch’s empire isnt the way to go, isnt it stomach churning stuff.

  67. More to come out!!!

    News International chief executive Mrs Brooks said she was aware of worse revelations to come and the employees would understand in a year’s time why the paper is soon closing.

      I heard this quote on BBC today.

      After [b]ALL[/b] the accusations of phone hacking and hacking scandals, let’s remember at this point that is all it is, have been aired we now have the Chief Executive of News International in the UK telling her, now, ex employees that worse is still to come. My brain, for what it is :D, is spinning trying to figure out what could be worse than what has recently been announced.

      I didn’t think things could get [b]ANY[/b] worse. The only thing that springs to mind for me is that they (News International, in whatever form it takes, has been secreting miniature cameras in some well known locations. Just a theory but hey with N.I. I guess anything is possible.

    • What can possibly be worse than what we have already witnessed?

      The only thing that I can possibly think of as being any worse than what we have already experienced from this total fiasco is that the NOTW have been secreting cameras into numerous “interesting” places perhaps?

  73. I am happy to see that the comments page has been restored.

    As I am abroad at the moment and it has been disappointing that the NNS site has again been unavailable.
    BBC news is pants!

    Internal conflicts, aims and objectives are important but this site, and what it represents, is too important to us who support independence to be put at risk.

    I hope that any disputes can be resolved and that the NNS can move forward to play its part in the next challenge which is the local elections in May 2012.

    All the best to those who work on behalf of an independent Scotland. Lets all work together for this.

    A short objective summary of what is going on would be appreciated soon!

    Regards to all.

  79. Just a little aside here. 🙂

    Personally I like the extended list of latest contributors that is currently running on the right hand side of the page. Hope we can keep this extended list. 🙂

    • I second that! It is quite hard to follow a discussion when there are as many topics being discussed as there are here. Perhaps retaining an extended list of commentators would be a good thing?

  97. A bad time for NNS to have problems, but of course you can’t be choosers of that. Not sure why you’re being so tight-lipped with the details but don’t have a particular problem with that.

    NOTW is only the beginning. That whatever phone hacking they were doing was being done by all tabloid newspapers seems obvious. This has been known about for a long time, I’ve been reading about it in Private Eye for years.

    Politicians are already openly admitting that they were being bullied by or went in fear of newspaper owners. Police were being paid to provide information to these newspapers, and probably still are – there’s a lot of information going around about the current investigations. NNS did a great article on information leaks form the police during the Sheridan trial. Where did the BBC get their footage of Gail Sheridan’s interrogation for example?

    This comes on top of the past revelations about expenses corruption at Westminster, but of course that was just the icing on the cake. The cosy relationship between Government and big business goes very deep indeed.

    Perhaps we are waking up now as a nation to the very deep corruption of our democracy by vested interest. It is no coincidence that this comes on the back of a huge financial crisis and as our Westminster parliament puts through rafts of legislation inimical to our rights as citizens and aimed at transferring public wealth into private pockets.

    Our whole democratic system is in meltdown which is why senior politicians and news people are looking very scared.

    Interesting times, I’m sorry to say.

    Any volunteers to “meet” him at the arrival gate with a pair of handcuffs? 😀

    That could be the reason for the tight lips.

    Mr Murdoch is no fool he is one step ahead of the game he has killed two birds with one stone:
    1: An opportunity to get rid of a costly
    operation which has got into
    serious trouble and
    2: Bring into play a new replacement
    paper the ‘Sun’ on Sunday.

    Both Labour and the Tories are steeped in the mire as they have been to close to the Murdoch empire for years.

    The sky deal will it go through ?
    It will be delayed I am sure but it’s a done deal behind the scenes.

    I feel genuinely sorry for the ordinary reporters and other staff who were employed and not involved in the goings on.

    People will end up in jail for what they have done and the Westminster MP’s will take the opportunity to put the boot right in the newspaper industry, not out of conviction but of pure revenge for their expenses scandal. So much for honest politics.

    Certain police officers will also be implicated and the whole rotten system will be revealed for a brief moment in time only to return to its corrupt self in a few months.

    The victims on the other hand will soon be forgotten and it will be back to normal business in about a year.

    I hope that when independence comes we will have a much more open and transparent system in place regarding the relationship between the media;the police and the Scottish government
    (SNP ) I hope.!

    PS:

    Weather in the Gran Canaries is HOT!

    I am already longing for the green grass and the rain in dear old Scotland.

    local wine 2 euros WOW it’s good.
    I do support the SNP’s initiative on cheap booze but I’ll enjoy for a fortnight.

  133. Newsnet Scotland is too important not to be here.

    There was a guy on Newsnight tonight, an ex-NOTW journalist. He has been on TV programme almost every day this week putting his case, from This Morning to Sky News and now on Newsnight. He is doing his profession no good by claiming that he is on the moral high ground by exposing the machinations of society and basically claiming that phone hacking is an acceptable means to an end. I wonder why the BBC and others are giving him air time as it looks like he is only there to collect the fees from his appearances. He comes over as a real seedy character. Steve Coogan gave him a rough ride as he also saw him for what he is.

    The situation on the phone hacking affair seems to be silent in Scotland apart from yesterday and today when there was some reaction to events in London. Why are there no media investigations here when the London papers are all over the story like a rash? Why is there no interest or previous information about the list that was handed over today by Anwar to the police? It seems that the Scottish media are far too lethargic in some matters.

  139. Noone is talking about the real story here. How did the police carry out a full investigation into NOTW phine tapping and come to the conclusion that it was all the work of a lone rogue PI and that very few phones had been bugged? We now know that co-operation between NOTW and the police was widespread and that many police officers were taking backhanders. So how many other papers were bunging cops? And who will carry out the final investigations into NOTW and phone tapping at the end of the day? If they could ignore the fact that the NOTW tampered with evidence to such an extent that a murder victim’s parents continued to believe that their daughter might still be alive then they too must have been in it up to their necks. If senior cops end up in the dock because if this then, I promise, I will eat my words!

  145. Good to see the ship’s been trimmed and we’re back on an even keel!
    Now to the Sheridan case. It has yet to be explained how the BBC got hold of the tape of Gail Sheridan being interviewed by L & B police. She was treated like a murderer and was quite within her rights to keep schtum! This was Crown evidence, who gave/sold it to Pacific Quay and how much did they get? Shocking stuff, is anybody safe.

    • CNJ, I remember at the time of Tommy Sheridan’s trial this question being discussed. At the time I believe [b]ALL[/b] sides were claiming to be innocent of passing on the video tapes to the BBC. However, the evidence was there for all to see on Reporting Scotland.

      As far as I can tell it comes down to who had [b]MOST[/b] to benefit. I do not believe for one second that it would have been anyone on the defence team who “released” the tapes, after what would they have to gain?

      I believe that the “handler” of the tapes would most likely have come from the prosecution/police team. After all, at that time both Tommy [b]AND[/b] Gail were on trial.

      My guess is that the prosecution were worried that they were loosing the case against Gail and had to do something to re-ignite the case against her. What better than to “release” video of her being interviewed by the police.

      [b][i]That remains to be seen[/i][/b].

      Clearly, there is something amiss in NNS, two similar but different domains but both, apparently, with the same usernames and passwords.

      The hosting locations have changed country, a bit of a mixture around and between Sweden, Canada and Denmark with the registered owners of the domains now being in Denmark and Australia, all changes from only [i]days[/i] ago.

      Despite requests, no explanations except for the numbing article in the .com version which says, well, nothing, other than the insinuation of some disagreement between whom and why, no indication is forthcoming, as yet.

      Responses seems to be ‘actively’ moderated in a not too distant fashion as that adopted by the BBC and the English Daily Mail. In other words, if they (as in NNS, the .com version), don’t like it, it gets dumped.

      Apologies if this appears like an intrusion but methinks it is necessary as there’s something amiss and as yet, unexplained.

      Clearly, there is something amiss in NNS, two similar but different domains but both, apparently, with the same usernames and passwords.

      The hosting locations have changed country, a bit of a mixture around and between Sweden, Canada and Denmark with the registered owners of the domains now being in Denmark and Australia, all changes from only [i]days[/i] ago.

      Despite requests, no explanations except for the numbing article in the .com version which says, well, nothing, other than the insinuation of some disagreement between whom and why, no indication is forthcoming, as yet.

      Responses seems to be ‘actively’ moderated in a not too distant fashion as that adopted by the BBC and the English Daily Mail. In other words, if they (as in NNS, the .com version), don’t like it, it gets dumped.

    Now to the Sheridan case. It has yet to be explained how the BBC got hold of the tape of Gail Sheridan being interviewed by L & B police. She was treated like a murderer and was quite within her rights to keep schtum! This was Crown evidence, who gave/sold it to Pacific Quay and how much did they get? Shocking stuff, is anybody safe.

  151. Do any of you streetwise people know if there is any way of checking whether one’s communications have been hacked by these scum?

    e.g. will the mobile phone company have a suspicion? Will BT? Will the internet provider?

    I ask because my wife’s social group were friends of (a late) someone who was the subject of a recent media frenzy.

    By the way, Sheridan surely must be released immediately in view of the doubts these revelations cast on his conviction.

  157. A disagreement within NNS clearly exists, alas with no credible explanation other than a collection of meaningless words.

    newsnetscotland.com now hosted in Sweden, changed over the past few days from Canada and previously Denmark when the equally unexplained so-called hosting issues started

    The domain is registered to a Danish individual. Another change.

    Now, newsnetscotland.net with a very similar web layout, hosted in Canada with a registered owner in Queensland, Australia, deliberately masking his/her/their details.

    NNS registered users, including their details, now on whose server?

    Donors’ details also held by whom?

    A full explanation is required and now.

    My PayPal donation is cancelled for the time being pending a suitable explanation.

    Why no opportunity to reply to the relevent article rather than having to slide it in here?
    Smells rather like the Herald.

  169. As the BBC were at pains to say the other day (this being BBC “Scotland”) Tommy Sheridan had “other witnesses” who stated that he was a liar etc, therefore the rather could cuckoo “conclusion” was that there was no problem if key witnesses may have lied under oath at his media frenzy trial!

    Not true!

    A mistrial, or quashing of conviction has little to do with examining other evidence of any trial that led to conviction, the pertinent issue is whether any part of the trial was a corrupt process, and commitiing perjury at a trial accusing another person of perjury can easily be seen as rendering anybody convicted of doing so as having committed serious criminality.

    The media in Scotland failed completely as usual to challenge the man issues over how Tommy sheridan and his wife were being groomed as fall guys to a media outlet that includes most probably most publications.

    We have seen the most partisan of online editing in a few Scottish newspapers for years, I have to say that there is far more to what is going on then phone hacking and being involved with police corruption, and it will be very difficult indeed for the media to keep a lid on it as they might usually do.

    as I have stated, the BBC Scotland report on Sheridan and his trial was a total offence to the intellect and so obviously a pathetic attempt to paper over the cracks in the way the media responded to phone hacking and strange behaviour over his trial and treatment by the BBC et al in the newspaper industrty.

    If anybody wants to see further information over the way Sheridan was treated (and in some ways I am far from a fan though I have to say his trial was a joke travesty in many ways) then Ian Hamilton QC has gone much further over the last six months or longer about the implications over all these aspects of the media and their nderhand methods that are just coming to light now………if you relied on the so called media for info on matters judicial or indeed political.

    It seems that the BBC has forgotten the way they championed the supreme court decisions recently over criminal convictions in Scots Law over what is in some cases obvious technicalities rather than new evidence or other ways convictions can be reversed or shown as unsafe-it was certainly out of bleeding order to try and fell the Sottish public that there isn’t a problem with the Sheridan case given the mire the news of the world has been imbedded in with their wellies well stuck in the dirt.

    Finally, Sheridan should be released pending further enquiries by the Scottish judicial system right away, there is already enough evidence since the media have reluctantly reported that main witnesses gave statements at Sheridan’s trial that are at odds with evidence elsewhere.

    The glib pride in the trial and conviction of Sheridan always left a bad taste in my mouth and I am sure I am not alone, Shridan was treated as if he was some sort of despotic mass murderer by the media rather than someone who had strayed morally due to weakness in his libido.

    The glib pride in the trial and conviction of Sheridan always left a bad taste in my mouth and I am sure I am not alone, Shridan was treated as if he was some sort of despotic mass murderer by the media rather than someone who had strayed morally due to weakness in his libido.

  174. As the BBC were at pains to say the other day (this being BBC “Scotland”) Tommy Sheridan had “other witnesses” who stated that he was a liar etc, therefore the rather could cuckoo “conclusion” was that there was no problem if key witnesses may have lied under oath at his media frenzy trial!

    Not true!

    A mistrial, or quashing of conviction has little to do with examining other evidence of any trial that led to conviction, the pertinent issue is whether any part of the trial was a corrupt process, and commitiing perjury at a trial accusing another person of perjury can easily be seen as rendering anybody convicted of doing so as having committed serious criminality.

    The media in Scotland failed completely as usual to challenge the man issues over how Tommy sheridan and his wife were being groomed as fall guys to a media outlet that includes most probably most publications.

    We have seen the most partisan of online editing in a few Scottish newspapers for years, I have to say that there is far more to what is going on then phone hacking and being involved with police corruption, and it will be very difficult indeed for the media to keep a lid on it as they might usually do.

    as I have stated, the BBC Scotland report on Sheridan and his trial was a total offence to the intellect and so obviously a pathetic attempt to paper over the cracks in the way the media responded to phone hacking and strange behaviour over his trial and treatment by the BBC et al in the newspaper industrty.

    If anybody wants to see further information over the way Sheridan was treated (and in some ways I am far from a fan though I have to say his trial was a joke travesty in many ways) then Ian Hamilton QC has gone much further over the last six months or longer about the implications over all these aspects of the media and their nderhand methods that are just coming to light now………if you relied on the so called media for info on matters judicial or indeed political.

  175. Free Sheridan now. Not next week. He’s a man who’s obviously the subject of a mistrial and has as a result an unsound conviction, so – free Sheridan now. Lets hear it!

  193. It was interesting to observe Coulson’s posturing as he left the police station. He could say nothing but would like to say plenty. A bit like a military helicopter sending out chaff in an atempt to deflect a heat seeking missile.
