No surprises, Aussie DJs will not face charges

The Aussie DJs that munters around the world blamed for the suicide of nurse with mental health issues will not be prosecuted.

The two Australian DJs whose hoax phone call has been blamed for the death of a nurse at a hospital which treated Kate Middleton for morning sickness are unlikely to face any charges.

Police in Sydney have revealed that no request has been received from Scotland Yard detectives to interview radio presenters Mel Greig and Michael Christian.

The 2Day FM radio hosts duped Jacintha Saldanha and another nurse at the King Edward VII Hospital in London into revealing private medical details about the condition of the Duchess of Cambridge.

Just days after Ms Saldanha transferred the call, she was found hanged.

It was originally thought the two hosts could face prosecution but yesterday Sydney police said no request had been made by detectives in the UK suggesting no further action would be taken.

New South Wales Deputy Police Commissioner Nick Kaldas said yesterday: ‘Nor do we expect there to be any requests.’

Mr Kaldas said Scotland Yard had not asked for any further information or to interview the two Sydney-based hosts.
