– Radio hoaxers Michael Christian and Mel Greig are unlikely to face charges over the prank call to a London hospital treating Prince William’s pregnant wife, Kate, according to NSW Police.
Deputy NSW Police Commissioner Nick Kaldas said yesterday Scotland Yard had not asked for any further information or to interview the two Sydney radio hosts.
Since her death, it has been revealed Ms Saldanha had twice attempted to kill herself in the past year and was prescribed anti-depressants.
British media this week suggested the Australian presenters might be charged over the prank call, saying Scotland Yard had sent a file to the Crown Prosecution Service last week.
The file was submitted for the CPS to consider whether any offences may have been committed by making the hoax call. But senior NSW police believe British prosecutors would have difficulty in finding a charge that could be laid – Mark Morri
