Cash-for-honours: No evidence is indicative of guilt, say police

Scotland Yard sources say that the lack of evidence in the cash-for-honours inquiry almost certainly proves that criminal offences have been committed. Police are investigating whether political parties broke the law in recommending peerages for donors but have found no evidence of wrongdoing - a clear indication, says a high ranking police source, of criminal activity. "We think it highly suspicious that we have uncovered no evidence whatsoever, so we are now investigating a conspiracy to pervert the course of justice," said the source last night. "This case is being conducted just like any other inquiry," he added, "and that's why we are determined to prosecute regardless of whether the evidence exists or not."
