'Sufficient evidence' to charge Libyans over Yvonne Fletcher





Two Libyan officials could be charged with involvement in the shooting dead of WPC Yvonne Fletcher, according to a legal assessment of evidence which has been seen by police and prosecutors.

The 150-page review names the men, who were attached to the Libyan People’s Bureau in London in 1984 at the time WPC Fletcher was killed in a burst of automatic gunfire from inside the building.

They did not have diplomatic immunity when the shooting happened at the Libyan Embassy in St James’s Square, and had evidence existed at the time they could have been tried in a British court. They were deported along with diplomats soon after the shooting.
