Scotland Yard hand over file on Australian Royal prank call to see if DJ duo committed offence
One half of DJ duo has also announced that she will take action against Southern Cross Austereo, her lawyer announces
Scotland Yard have confirmed they passed a file of evidence over to Australian police regarding the prank call made by a DJ duo when the Duchess of Cambridge was in hospital with morning sickness.
Police announced on Wednesday a file was handed to Australian Federal Police and New South Wales Police Station, and it was requested that consideration be given as to whether any offenses were committed under their laws.
Nurse Jacintha Saldanha was found dead three days after Ms Greig and her colleague Michael Christian called King Edward VII's Hospital, where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated for severe morning sickness, pretending to be the Queen and Prince Philip in December.
U.K. prosecutors have declined to press charges against the two.
Now, one of the Australian DJs who made a prank call to the hospital is pursuing legal action against radio station 2Day FM, it has been reported.
Mel Greig is accusing her employer Southern Cross Austereo of failing to provide a safe workplace at the radio station, according to the Melbourne Age.
Ms Greig, who has not returned to work since the incident, filed her claim with the Fair Work Commission. Mr Christian instead returned to presenting and was then controversially awarded the internal 'Next Top Jock' competition for DJs which aimed to find the “best in the land”.
Ms Greig's lawyer, Steven Lewis of Slater & Gordon, told Fairfax Media: “I can confirm that a general protections application has been filed with Fair Work Australia on behalf of Mel Greig against Southern Cross Austereo.”
Mr Lewis confirmed that Ms Greig is still employed by Austereo.
The application alleges Southern Cross Austereo failed to maintain a safe workplace in relation to the hoax phone call incident.
Ms Greig's legal action comes as Southern Cross Austereo awaits a decision from the Federal Court over the authority of the Australian Communications and Media Authority broadcasting watchdog, the newspaper reported.
