Huhne driving papers handed to CPS
Friday 10 June 2011
Police investigating allegations that Energy Secretary Chris Huhne dodged speeding points to escape a driving ban have handed preliminary papers to prosecutors.
The Crown Prosecution Service said it had received a batch of "initial papers" from Essex Police yesterday.
"We will consider them," a spokesman said.
"The police are still continuing with their investigation. We haven't got a full file of evidence. We are not at the point of taking a charging decision."
Mr Huhne faces claims that in 2003 he persuaded his then wife, Vicky Pryce, to accept speeding penalty points on his behalf to avoid a driving ban. He denies the allegation.
