The investigation into whether the Deputy Chief Constable of Surrey Police knew Milly Dowler’s voicemails had been hacked is nearing completion and the report is being finalised. We anticipate having the final investigation report with Surrey Police by December.
Following reports in today’s Independent newspaper the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is contacting the Dowler family to inform them of the current position and to assuage any concerns they have as a result of this inaccurate report.
The IPCC is giving consideration as to what information we will be able to put in the public domain without having any impact on future criminal proceedings. At this stage assuming publication of the report will be delayed until 2014 is pure speculation and without foundation.
