Burrell not referred to police for perjury probe
Tuesday 08 April 2008
Diana, Princess of Wales's former butler Paul Burrell looks set to escape a perjury investigation after the coroner at her inquest said he had no plans to refer him to police.
Lord Justice Scott Baker, who last week branded Mr Burrell a "liar", has confirmed that he is "not minded" to pass the matter on to Scotland Yard even though the inquest has now concluded, a spokesman said.
The Metropolitan Police also confirmed that it is not currently investigating any perjury allegations relating to the case - although it did not rule out doing so in the future.
After he gave evidence to the inquest in January, Mr Burrell was caught on camera admitting that he had not told the "whole truth" and had given the jury some "red herrings".
