Jacintha's suicide: Australian RJs not to be charged

London, Dec 28, 2012 (IANS):

The two Australian radio presenters whose prank call was blamed for the suicide of Indian-origin nurse Jacintha Saldanha are unlikely to face charges, a media report said Friday.

Saldanha, 46, was found hanging days after being tricked. She put the Australians' prank call through to pregnant Duchess Kate's hospital room where she was being treated for morning sickness.

Police in Sydney Thursday said that no request has been received from Scotland Yard to interview the radio pranksters -- Mel Greig, 30, and Michael Christian, 25.
"Nor do we expect there to be any requests," The Sun quoted Sydney police chief Nick Kaldas as saying.

British police submitted a file to the Crown Prosecution Service last week, but their Australian counterparts believe it would be difficult to find a charge that could be laid against the 2Day FM hosts.

Greig and Christian rang London's King Edward VII Hospital pretending to be Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles. Saldanha was found dead three days later.
