Kate hoax call was 'misguided harmless prank'

In reaching this decision, the CPS has taken into account the following, among other, matters:

It is not possible to extradite individuals from Australia in respect of the potential offences in question.

However misguided, the telephone call was intended as a harmless prank.

The consequences in this case were very sad.

We send our sincere condolences to Jacintha Saldanha’s family.
