It’s not the crime, it’s the coverup

“Ex-Editor Accused of Coverup,” Wall Street Journal, November 5, 2013 B4

Alleged efforts to hide or destroy evidence of phone hacking, bribery and other “wrongdoing” in News of the World probe.  Prosecution in the UK. Evidence included seven boxes of archived notebooks, computer equipment, and other storage devices.

A compliance point: phone hacking may be bad, but conspiring with others to destroy the (corporate) evidence of phone hacking is worse. And who owns the notebooks and computers?  My guess, the company.  Not the employees.
