'Emailgate' investigation is over

After almost seven years the 'Emailgate' investigation is now said to be completed and closed.  

At the police press briefing Wednesday, acting Assistant Superintendent Michael Pierre revealed that the Police Service has gathered evidence about the emails sent to certain government members in September 2012.

He says service providers were interrogated as well as the device of one individual who was on the email thread.

ASP Pierre says the Federal Bureau of investigation conducted an investigation to filter out any data and that information was then sent to the TTPS. 

Pierre said all evidence found in relation to Emailgate were carefully considered by the officer of director of public prosecutions. 

However, the Office of the DPP was not satisfied with the evidence. 

In 2013, then Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley presented a series of printed emails to parliament under the cover of privilege.
