Sources: Sunday Times & Mail on Sunday Have “Confession”

Guido understands that both the Sunday Times and the Mail on Sunday have evidence that is not in the form of a “sworn affidavit” as was claimed yesterday by rivals the Telegraph. It is nevertheless evidence from Vicky Pryce that gave the respective papers’ lawyers confidence to allow them to assert that Chris Huhne perverted the course of justice. A serious charge…

Today in the Daily Telegraph the same journalist, Mark Hughes, claims a police source says Vicky Pryce did not confirm claims she has previously made about taking her husband’s penalty points. It was Mark Hughes however who made the claim about a “sworn affidavit” and wrote yesterday in the Telegraph that it was “the likelihood that Miss Pryce told detectives that she took penalty points on behalf of her former husband when she was interviewed on Tuesday.”  An about turn in 24 hours…

Given the existence of her evidence, if it is true that Vicky Pryce has declined to assist the police, the police will almost certainly obtain a Court Order for the evidence from the newspapers. Not long now...

            a) she plans to expose her hubby

            b) she contacts newspapers to do so

            c) then in meeting with police her evidence in any way varies

            She could loose access to her kids after alll….. if she can be painted as a vindictive person……

          How the fuck can she get done for wasting Police time ?
          To do so you first have to make an official report to the police which you know to be untrue and thus waste their time as they investigate it.
          As far as I know she hasn,t made an official report to them of any descriprtion whether true or not. if the police want to raise an enquiry on the back of Newspaper stories then that is up to them.

            You totally misunderstand the offence. Merely, by itself, just because she ‘took the points’ for what later turned out not to be her, doesn’t mean that she did it knowingly and wilfully, nor that she entered into a conspiracy to do so. They both would be guilty of s172 (failure to supply), but the more serious allegations require proof that they did it knowingly and wilfully, and that they agreed to do it (for the conspiracy).

    Corner of The Yard says:

    An affidavit would not be introduced in a criminal case unless the person refused to give a witness statement but admitted the affidavit existed. A court order would be required to get it. As VP is a party to the offence, the police would offer her a Formal Caution in return for an admission of guilt and a statement as to her involvement which means she is properly dealt with in the eyes of the law and is then free to be a witness against Huhne. Unless she flatly denies being involved and police are solely relying on other evidence VP doesn’t really have a ‘choice’ about helping if she doesn’t want to be in the dock with him. I suspect she has made her statement, had her Caution and the details passed to the CPS for a decision on charging The Secretary of State or not.

    A lawyer writes says:

    It really depends on how interested the Police are in investigating this. I always thought she was either poorly advised or not thinking it through because she is as guilty as he is. Having raised the matter saying “No comment” (well within her rights) isn’t necessarily an answer. The Police know the vehicle and they presumbably know that Huhne is the registered keeper. He will have got the form and put her name on it (or perhaps she did at his request). They will also know when and where the camera went off and so if they can get some reliable evidence of where each of them was – if she can’t have been driving then she has to come up with some explanation. Ideally the Police need to have enough evidence of their whereabouts to charge both of them. Then, in the legal parlance, it becomes a “cut throat” as each blames the other to save themselves. That way they both end up going down. However I suspect you’ll end up with some mealy mouthed statement from the Police/CPS saying that they can’t be sure after all these years where exactly they were and so there is not enought to convict. Probably just as bad for Huhne as everyone will just continue to assume he is guilty and treat him accordingly.

    She's an evil bitch says:

    Sacking Sharon Shoesmith was the only right thing Blinky ever did. She’s a wretched c unt who said she was proud of her record and had nothing to apologise for, and then went to Ascot to chug on champagne the same day details emerged of the baby’s death. She’s a c unt who should rot to death.

      +1. However, Labour and leftish ideology have contributed to promoting people like Shoesmith. Their benefits policies directly led to an unpleasant and inadequate young woman farming babies as a lifestyle choice and then becoming wound-in to a vicious cuckoo who reveled in the public money and private torture this stupidity afforded him.

      Which is not to excuse the nasty young woman – she did deliberately deceive both doctors and social workers – but the ideology fosters monsters like this. Then Shoesmith benefitted from having plenty of them, doing nothing to challenge it and everything to make sure there would be plenty more for her to make a living off.

    If you are a civil servant you can utterly fail at your job, run a department so appallingly that your failures lead indirectly to deaths, yet of course, its not your fault and you should damn well NOT be held to account.

    Has the divorce gone through yet? Because if it hasn’t, then surely the police cannot force her to testify against her husband. And if she can’t be forced to testify against her husband, how can the police get a court order to seize a document in which she er, testifies against her husband.

      A previous inconsistent statement made to a newspaper is hardly the basis for launching a prosecution in a criminal court. Unfortunately. She’s not a compellable witness for the prosecution.

      If she was suspected of an offence she would have been cautioned. So too would he.

      However, perhaps she merely confirmed that the version of events doing the rounds was “incorrect” on that basis that she didn’t “take the points” which implies knowledge and collusion, but ended up with the points because the driver denied bing the driver, falsely alleged that she was, intercepted the PCN addressed to her, admitted the offence on her behalf, and stole her driving licence, which involves which is a huhnous course of criminal conduct.

      The Police will not want their time wasted. It may be that VP alone will now be prosecuted for perverting the course of justice by admitting the offence when she could not have been there. ie a prosecution based on her cast iron alibi. What she says in Defence or mitigation however may generate admissible evidence about the role of another. A conviction will thrown the light on to Huhne. So too would an acquittal depending on the basis of it. In either case Huhne will be a necessary competent and compellable witness.
