Two Australian RJs who made a hoax call to the UK hospital treating Prince William's pregnant wife Kate, that preceded an Indian-origin nurse's suicide, will not face charges including manslaughter, UK's Crown Prosecution Service said.
Mel Greig and Michael Christian phoned the King Edward VII's Hospital pretending to be members of the Royal Family asking about the duchess's treatment.
Jacintha Saldanha, 46, was found dead three days after taking the call. The CPS said there was no evidence to support a charge of manslaughter, BBC reported.
Malcolm McHaffie, deputy head of special crime at CPS, said a number of issues had been taken into account in reaching its conclusion. "It is not possible to extradite individuals from Australia in respect of the offences in question. However misguided, the telephone call was intended as a harmless prank."
