Tut tut, Mr. Coulson… better start burning all that insidious evidence before it’s…
OOPS TOO LATE!
Former editor of the now defunct News Of The World tabloid Andy Coulson was arrested in Scotland Wednesday for commiting perjury - essentially lying under oath - before the High Court of Glasgow.
Coulson, who resigned from News Corp’s NOTW directly after the phone-hacking scandal erupted back in 2007, and who was then hired as communications chief of British Prime Minister David Cameron, took the stand at the 2010 perjury trial of former Scottish politician Tommy Sheridan, where he claimed there was no culture of phone hacking at NOTW.
Ha! Obviously, we know that to be FALSE.
Coulson, who resigned from his conservative political position in 2011 due to mounting evidence against himself and other NOTW employees, has been released from custody and will face the Scottish courts at a later date.
And what about the death of that whistleblower who named Coulson as phone-hacking participant?
Could Coulson be guilty of perjury AND murder?!!
We are ever so curious!
