Former senior Met officer slams force for dropping Prince Andrew sex crime probe.
Former chief superintendent Dai Davies has hit out at the Met police for prematurely dropping the investigation into Prince Andrew. Davies claims that Cressida Dick is “totally incapable of making operational decisions”. He also believes that an independent enquiry should be carried out by a different force.
Officers from the Met spoke to Virginia Giuffre. She alleges that Prince Andrew sexually assaulted her on Jeffrey Epstein’s private island and also in London and New York.
The Duke of York has denied the allegations. Scotland Yard has decided to drop the probe into the member of the Royal family.
Speaking to the Mirror Mr Davies said: “There are far more questions than answers here. What have they reviewed, what have they investigated?
“What did the commissioner (Cressida Dick) ask? So far she has proved herself totally incapable of making operational decisions so there is a strong case for an outside force to be brought in to independently assess all this information.”
Many questions have been raised regarding the police recently after a serving officer was able to murder Sarah Everard.
Mr Davies commented: “Given the Met’s reputation and inability to keep their own house in order, what trust should the public have in them to investigate a member of the Royal Family?
“It is still unknown whether the Met has interviewed a catalogue of potential witnesses including Andrew’s former police protection officers, members of the Royal Household staff and key people associated with Epstein and Maxwell.
“The whole process stinks of a job done very badly indeed.”
