Rebekah Brooks, who was once one of Rupert Murdoch's closest associates -- sometimes called his protégée -- is among the first persons criminally charged in the scandal that has hit Murdoch's newspaper business in Britain The Crown Prosecution Service -- comparable to the U.S. Attorney General's office -- accused Brooks, the former head of News International, of perverting the course of justice by allegedly attempting to remove evidence of related to telephone hacking and bribery of police and other public officials from News Corp offices. Others charged with criminal conduct included Mark Hanna, the former head of security at News International, Brooks' personal assistant Cheryl Carter, Brooks chauffeur Paul Edwards and Daryl Jorsling who was assigned to provide personal security services to Brooks. Specifically, Brooks and Carter were charged with conspiring "to remove seven boxes of material from the archive of News International," the umbrella organization for News Corps' U.K. news operations. In a statement, Alison Levitt, principal legal advisor to the director of public prosecutions said "All these matters relate to the ongoing police investigation into allegations of phone hacking and corruption of public officials in relation to the News of the World and The Sun newspapers." Brooks later released a terse statement deploring "this weak and unjust decision."
