James Murdoch, chairman of the company’s British arm, apologized for wrongdoing at the now defunct tabloid newspaper.

“First of all I would just like to say how sorry I am and how sorry we are to particularly the victims of the illegal voicemail interceptions and to their families,” James Murdoch said.

“It is a matter of great regret, of mine, of my father‘s, and everyone at News Corporation,” he added.
