The Metropolitan police has been told to explain and justify the threshold which they say was not met in their investigation of Danny Baker’s racist tweet.
Baker was sacked from BBC Radio 5 Live for tweeting the picture of a chimpanzee looking baby being held by a couple, along the caption ”royal baby leaves hospital.
His tweet came on the day Harry and Meghan, who is African-American, welcomed their first child, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.
Scotland Yard said the force had received an allegation in relation to a tweet posted on May 8 but confirmed on Wednesday it would take no further action.
“Having reviewed the comments made, we do not consider that a criminal threshold has been met and as such we will be taking no further action.”
The Eye Of Media.Com this evening challenged Scotland yard to state the threshold that was not met for a criminal investigation and also reveal the identity of the detective who investigated it for closer inspection.
The challenge follows special information that the police was likely to sweep the case under the carpet in light of the support received by Baker in the wake of his sackings.
Lawyers working with this publication have said that on the absence of a full disclosure of the grounds on which the investigation was closed, the decision should not be seen as a professionally competent one. Only when the threshold said not to have been met is presented , can it be thoroughly scrutinised to confirm its stated validity.
