No criminal investigation into Bashir Panorama interview with Princess Diana, say police

Police will not launch a criminal investigation into BBC journalist Martin Bashir’s Panorama interview with Princess Diana.

The decision comes after the Metropolitan Police assessed the Lord Dyson report into the 1995 documentary.

Scotland Yard said: “In March 2021, the Metropolitan Police Service determined it was not appropriate to begin a criminal investigation into allegations of unlawful activity in connection with a documentary broadcast in 1995.

“Following the publication of Lord Dyson’s report in May, specialist detectives assessed its contents and looked carefully at the law – once again obtaining independent legal advice from Treasury Counsel as well as consulting the Crown Prosecution Service.

“As a result, the MPS has not identified evidence of activity that constituted a criminal offence and will therefore be taking no further action.”
