UK energy secretary's file handed to CPS

British Energy Secretary, Chris Huhne, has been accused of coaxing her ex-wife, Vicky Pryce, into accepting penalty points for speeding on behalf of him.

“We have received a file of evidence from Essex Police in relation to allegations involving Christopher Huhne and Vicky Pryce. This file will be reviewed under the code for Crown Prosecutors and a decision on whether to charge will be made in due course,” said a spokesman for CPS.

Pryce claimed that the Eastleigh MP has persuaded her to take his penalty points so that he could save his driving license. She claimed that Huhne has committed speeding violations in 2003 on his way back from Stansted Airport.

The police investigation began in March and the file was passed to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in order to be decided whether Huhne has committed the offences.
