Press Release: POE Offers $100,000 Reward
ProtectOurElections.org Offers $100,000 Reward For Information Leading To The Arrest And Conviction Of News Corp Employees Who Hacked Or Bribed Americans
Watchdog Launches New Campaign ProsecuteNewsCorp.org
07.18.2011– Washington, DC- ProtectOurElections.org announced today that it is offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of News Corp employees who hacked the phones of American citizens in the US, or bribed officials or others for information about Americans.
ProtectOurElections.org, an advocacy group dedicated to corporate and government accountability, is actively seeking whistleblowers and insiders who have personal knowledge of the illegal conduct and/or documents proving the illegal conduct. Tipsters can remain confidential and information can be sent to Tips@ProsecuteNewsCorp.com.
“News Corp and its top brass have engaged in an astonishing criminal enterprise in the UK.” said ProtectOurElections.org spokesman and attorney Kevin Zeese. “The investigation has now reached Rupert Murdoch’s inner sanctum and may not be limited to his UK operations.
ProtectOurElections.org is offering an incentive for whistleblowers to come forward and be rewarded for providing any evidence that News Corp committed similar illegal conduct here in the United States. Our reward of $100,000 does just that.”
The information must not be in the public domain or already provided to law enforcement officials. ProtectOurElections.org will provide any hard evidence to the FBI.
Last Monday, July 11, 2011, ProtectOurElections.org wrote a letter to the FBI and SEC requesting parallel criminal and civil investigations of News Corp for violating the bribery prohibitions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Within days, Members of Congress joined that call and by Friday, Attorney General Eric Holder had confirmed that various federal agencies were investigating News Corp.
ProtectOurElections.org has also launched a campaign, www.ProsecuteNewsCorp.org, to update the public and media on all the latest in the News Corp scandal, posting news, videos, action items and other information.
