The Director of Public Prosecutions, Christopher Pryde, (DPP) has decided that no charges will be laid against the Attorney-General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, in relation to his alleged involvement in two bombing incidents in 1987.

The police file was sent to the DPP for an assessment of the evidence and a decision on whether any charges should be laid following a complaint that the Attorney-General had been involved in two separate bombing incidents in 1987.

The file was returned to Police on 13.11.20 for further investigation and the file was returned to the DPP’s Office on 14.12.20.

The DPP stated that “following a review of the Police docket, it is our opinion that there is insufficient credible or reliable evidence to support any criminal charges being laid against the Attorney-General and, therefore, the docket has been returned to police with the instruction not to charge and no further action is required.”
