YVONNE SUSPECT CASH PROBE DROPPED
A SUSPECT in the 1984 murder of police officer Yvonne Fletcher will face no further action over money laundering.
The Libyan national, who is in his 50s, is still under investigation over the killing, but was told on July 28 that there was not enough evidence to charge him over the alleged financial crime, Scotland Yard said.
Two other Libyans – a woman in her 40s and a man in his 30s – were also arrested over claims of money laundering but will also face no further action.
Pc Fletcher (left) was killed as she policed a demonstration against Colonel Muammar Gaddafi outside the Libyan People’s Bureau in St James’s Square on April 17 1984.
The shooting sparked a 10-day siege of the building before 30 of the occupants were deported back to Libya.
No-one has ever been prosecuted over the killing.
A reward of up to £50,000 is being offered for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of those responsible.
Scotland Yard said the investigation into the murder of Pc Fletcher is ongoing.
