Goodman is the only reporter to be arrested for the phone hacking scandal that led to the closure of the 165-year-old tabloid.
The Parliament’s Culture, Media and Sport Committee has been examining and interviewing News Corp. employees, past and present, but cannot conclude on how much the executives knew. There were, however, "devastating revelations" found in the examination.
James Murdoch, son of CEO Rupert, told lawmakers he did not learn about the scandal until 2010, but News of the World's legal manager and top editor told lawmakers they told Murdoch of the phone hacking in 2008.
The phone hacking scandal came to a head two months ago when it was revealed that the tabloid was hacking the voicemail of a missing school girl to clear her inbox, leading the carrier and her family to believe she was still alive when she was not.
