– Baljit Ubhey, CPS London Chief Crown Prosecutor
The Crown Prosecution Service has today authorised the Metropolitan Police Service to charge Tulisa Contostavlos, 25, with being concerned in the supply of Class A drugs.
This charge relates to an investigation by The Sun newspaper between early March 2013 and 23 May 2013 which resulted in the supply of Class A drugs to an investigative journalist.
We have determined that there is sufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction and that a prosecution is in the public interest.
Ms Contostavlos will appear before Westminster Magistrates' Court on 19 December 2013.
