I believe this is called “obstruction of justice”

Dan Sabbagh, The Guardian:

Rupert Murdoch’s News International took active steps to delete and prepare to delete the publisher’s email archives as phone-hacking allegations and lawsuits against the owner of the now-defunct News of the World mounted in 2009 and developed in 2010.

According to court documents filed by victims of hacking, the newspaper publisher allegedly produced an email deletion policy in November 2009 whose aim was to “eliminate in a consistent manner” emails “that could be unhelpful in the context of future litigation”.

According to the claimants, News International also destroyed “all computers used by its journalists” in about October 2010….

The timing of the alleged deletion activity… is significant ….

If this doesn’t send someone top jail, um, oh, well, it will be things as usual. But it does sound as if a crime was committed by senior execs at Newscorp’s print wing.
