提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
They’ve said sorry and offered compensation to some, but for News international the phone hacking scandal isn’t going away. Today, many want to know why an apology didn’t come soon as police’s investigation continues to delve into the saga.

In the statement, they said News International has decided to approach some civil litigants with an unreserved apology and admission of liability in case of meeting specific criteria. It’s now apparent that our previous enquiries failed to uncover important evidence. We acknowledge our actions then were not sufficiently robust. Lawyers for News International are now dealing with the compensation scheme to settle justifiable clients, but there are caveats said only covered cases from 2004 to 2006, and the paper says they will find any claims police believes lacks merit.

It’s understood that at least eight people are now in line for a payment included in those eight Tecy John, Sienna Miller, Andy Gray, and assistants who worked for John Prescott and Max Clifford.

News International’s announcement yesterday is now opened up a flood gates. They put their hands up. So apart from the eight people named who would be looking to get vast sums of money in compensation, loads of others will now come out, because so many people I spoke to believed their phones being hacked, not by News International, many of them but by other news papers.

Early this week, Ian Edmondson, the paper’s former news editor, and Neville Thurlbeck, his chief reporter, were arrested. They’ve now been released on police bail. As the team of Scolin Yard continue to sift again through thousands of documents, this latest admission raises questions about how far criminal charges could stretch.

I think what it is important is for individuals who broke the law to be helped to account. If police can approve criminal offences, then we should be sending more people go to prison.

John Prescott is among those calling for a takeover of BSkyB by News International’s parent group News Call to be halted until police have concluded their investigation.

There is bound to be a split reaction to yesterday’s apology. The cynical will question the time and the motive. Other victims may be slightly mellowed. Either way, it’s not the end of the story.
