Cameron calls for an investigation into wiretaps of 'News of the World'

British Prime Minister, David Cameron, argued Wednesday before the Parliament opened an investigation into the alleged wiretaps conducted by the newspaper sensacionalistaNews of the World, owned by businessman Rupert Murdoch. "We must carry out an investigation, possibly several inquiries about what has happened," said Prime Minister to the House of Commons.

"Everyone in this Chamber and in this country, has been outraged by what he has heard and seen on their television screens," he continued. The British Parliament on Wednesday celebrated an extraordinary debate on the scandal of the wiretaps, which has been known that the newspaper agravadotras been able to access voice mail messages to several victims of crimes, including Milly Dowler, a 13 years old who was kidnapped and later murdered.

In addition, several relatives of victims of the attacks of July 7, 2005 in London have reported that, according to information from the police, the 'tabloid' has also intercepted messages from their mailboxes. Graham Foulkes, whose son David was among 52 people killed in the attacks, said Wednesday the chain of BBC radio that the police had discovered during research on the needles, that their communications had been intercepted.

During the days following the attacks, said the family used the phone "frantically" trying to find out about David. "We talked about very intimate about very personal issues, and the idea that these guys have been hearing is just horrific," he said. The House of Commons is likely to propose a national boycott of the News of the World to resign Rebekah Brooks, a close friend of Murdoch, former director of press and friend of the Prime Minister himself.
