Ex-NI boss hits backs over UK MP's report on phone hacking
London, May 14 (ANI): Former News International boss Les Hinton has responded back at a report by British lawmakers on the phone hacking scandal, accusing them of 'misreading' evidence.
The House of Commons culture, media and sport committee issued a report on May 1 accusing Hinton of 'selective amnesia' during his evidence to its investigation into phone hacking.
The report claimed he misled parliament and was 'complicit' in a cover-up of the true extent of phone hacking at the News of the World, which was initially blamed on a single rogue reporter.
Hinton, who disputed the findings in a statement issued on the day the report was published, has now released a more detailed response, which he has sent to the committee's chairman John Whittingdale, The Daily Express reports.
"They (committee's findings) are based on a misreading of evidence, and on a selective and misleading analysis of my testimonies to your committee," Hinton said.
He also pointed out that the report's conclusions 'rest on a highly selective reading of the record, and unsupportable leaps in logic and inference'. (ANI)
