YVONNE SUS­PECT CASH PROBE DROPPED

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.
