Former Prime Minister Gordon Brown testified about his relationship with the press. He continued answering questions about his relationship with James and Rupert Murdoch, and an alleged call from Mr. Brown to Rupert Murdoch about Afghanistan and accusations that he was going to “wage war on Murdoch.”

Prime Minister David Cameron appointed Lord Justice Leveson on July 13, 2011, to investigate the role of the press and police in the phone-hacking scandal surrounding the defunct British newspaper News of the World.
