I stand by my evidence says Colin Myler
Tuesday 01 May 2012
Former News of the World editor Colin Myler said today he "stands by" his evidence after he was accused of misleading MPs.
The Commons Culture, Media and Sport Committee concluded that Mr Myler misled it over his knowledge of how widespread phone-hacking was at the now-defunct Sunday tabloid.
Mr Myler was brought in as News of the World editor after Andy Coulson resigned in January 2007 following the jailing of the paper's royal editor Clive Goodman for intercepting the voicemails of royal aides.
Mr Myler, who is now editor of the New York Daily News, said in a statement: "While I respect the work that the Select Committee has carried out, I stand by the evidence that I gave the committee.
"I have always sought to be accurate and consistent in what I have said to the committee.
"The conclusions of the committee have, perhaps inevitably, been affected by the fragmented picture which has emerged from the various witnesses over successive appearances and by the constraints within which the committee had to conduct its procedure.
"These issues remain the subject of a police investigation and the Leveson judicial inquiry and I have every confidence that they will establish the truth in the fullness of time."
