England Team Members Decline To Comment

England Team Members Decline To Comment
New Zealand Police National News Release
10:07am 20 June 2008
http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release.html?id=4018

Members of Auckland City Police's Adult Sexual Assault Team [which is part of the Auckland CIB] flew to Christchurch yesterday in the hope of being able to speak with the four England Rugby Team players at the centre of a serious sexual assault allegation.

The players have advised Police - via legal representation this morning - that they are declining to be interviewed by Police on the matter at this stage.

Auckland City Police will continue to investigate the allegation - that a woman was raped and/or sexually assaulted by four players - as thoroughly as possible before reviewing the file.

Any decision about where to take matters from there will depend on the outcome of that review.

While no formal statement has been made by the woman who made the allegations, a formal complaint can be made at any time in the future and Police are then obliged to assess the evidential basis of that complaint.
