Royal Nurse Hoax DJ’s May Be Probed By UK Police: Radio Station Blasts ‘Witch Hunt’

Following the suspected suicide of nurse Jacintha Saldanha, two days after she transferred a prank call made to the hospital that treated the Duchess of Cambridge, reportedly UK police may question the two DJ’s responsible for the call.

So far, UK police have spoken to staff at the Australian high commission in London in what is thought to be the first stage in an investigation ahead of an inquest into the untimely death of 46-year-old Saldanha.

The UK’s Guardian newspaper reports that the Metropolitan police want to “ensure police in New South Wales assist” in that investigation. Nick Kaldas, the deputy commissioner for New South Wales police, has confirmed the request.

“It hasn’t been indicated to us that an offence has occurred and [the Met] have not actually asked for anything yet,” said Kaldas. “They’ve simply touched base, let us know of their interest and they will get back to us if they actually want something done.”

A spokesman for the Australian force has since said they will do all they can to help the British investigation.

It’s believed the Met may want to find out if there are parts of the prank telephone call that were not broadcast on the 2Day FM show. Mel Grieg and Michael Christian made the call last Tuesday after pretending to be the Queen and Charles, Prince of Wales.

After first speaking to Saldanha, the DJ’s were transferred to the Duchess of Cambridge’s personal nurse, who then revealed details of the Duchess’s morning sickness condition.

Adding to the now raging media storm, the owner of the Sydney radio station has blasted what he calls a “witch hunt” by the British press against Grieg and Christian.
