UK Fraud Watchdog Opens News International Probe
http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2011/07/17/271316/bre... /

Britains Channel 4 News is reporting that the UKs Serious Fraud Office (SFO), the agency charged with investigating and prosecuting large and complex fraud cases, has begun a preliminary investigation into News International, the parent company of News Corps UK newspapers. The probe comes after Labor MP Tom Watson wrote a letter to the SFO, in which he called News Corps alleged payments to police a gross misuse of shareholders money. This latest revelation in the ongoing scandal comes just hours after former News International executive Rebekah Brooks was arrested in London.

2. The "Serious Fraud Office". What a great name! Perfect for Murdoch.
If there ever was anybody who should be investigated by

the Serious Fraud Office it's Rupert Murdoch and his

Evil Empire.
