Scotland Yard submits report on prank call
Scotland Yard has submitted a file to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in the United Kingdom over the Hot 30 prank phone call.
The CPS will now consider whether any offences have been committed, and subsequently whether charges should be laid. ACMA have already announced their own inquiry into the call.
A spokesman for Scotland Yard has commented;
"Following the death of Jacintha Saldanha, officers have liaised with the CPS as to whether any criminal offences had been committed in relation to the hoax call made to King Edward VII Hospital in the early hours of Tuesday December 4."
"On Wednesday December 19, officers submitted a file to the CPS for them to consider whether any potential offences may have been committed by making the hoax call."
Meanwhile broadcaster Mel Greig's father has hired security guards at his home in the Adelaide suburb of Happy Valley following threatening calls made to the family home in the wake of the prank call.
Mel released a statement to the Adelaide Advertiser yesterday which said in part;
‘The love and support that I’m getting from everyone in Adelaide has helped me immensely through this. Adelaide is my home and to see them rally behind me has been incredible. Nothing will ever take away the pain I feel for Jacintha and her family, but the one thing I’ve learned from this situation is to use the support around you.’
