Phone hacking scandal: 9/11 families to meet with Attorney General Eric Holder
WASHINGTON (AP) — A lawyer for some 9/11 family members says Attorney General Eric Holder has agreed to meet with them on Aug. 24 regarding the FBI inquiry into the allegations surrounding Rupert Murdoch's media empire.
According to a London tabloid's story based on unnamed sources, a former New York police officer-turned-private investigator said he'd been contacted by journalists from Murdoch's News of the World who offered to pay him to retrieve private phone records of Sept. 11 victims in the United States. The story said the investigator turned down the proposal.
On Wednesday, New York attorney Norman Siegel said he and about 20 family members will make some recommendations to the Justice Department regarding possible actions the government could take to investigate the story.
