Essex Police Raid Pryce Home, Take Phone

This blog may have in the past queried the progress of the Essex police investigation into Chris Huhne. With the obtaining of the Pryce recording and statement from the Sunday Times we became more optimistic. The Mail on Sunday’s scoop this morning that just over a week ago Essex police raided Vicky Pryce’s home to obtain her son Peter’s phone with text messages on the phone from Chris Huhne gives us more confidence that they are being thorough.

Clearly the police suspect Huhne is trying to pressure his ex-wife via the children, in this you have the measure of the man, to save his career he would have others lie for him. Even by the low standards of politicians Chris Huhne is a particularly selfish man who lies without compunction. 

It could be difficult to prosecute Huhne if Vicky retracts her signed statement. The CPS are by all accounts wary of prosecuting a Minister of the Crown, who would without doubt have to resign to defend himself. Nevertheless, given the circumstantial evidence it would be a travesty of justice if the CPS nervously failed to proceed essentially because Huhne is a government minister. It is not for the CPS to decide whom they believe, it is time for a jury to determine the truth.
