Chris Huhne – Ex Wife Signs Sworn Legal Confession She Took The Points
The slow and agonising death of Chris Huhne’s political career ground inexorably onwards with the news that a few weeks ago ex-wife Vicky Price signed an affidavit stating she took the points on Huhne’s behalf.
The affidavit is in the possession of a Sunday newspaper
Weeks before being interviewed by the police, Vicky Pryce signed an affidavit declaring that she took the points around the time she first told a Sunday newspaper that Mr Huhne had forced “someone” to take points on his behalf. It is believed to have been signed in front of a lawyer and is in the paper’s possession. Essex police refused to confirm whether they have requested the document.
Its existence strengthens the likelihood that Miss Pryce told detectives that she took penalty points on behalf of her former husband when she was interviewed on Tuesday.
It also proves she is willing to testify against her former husband, despite the fact that she would be admitting a criminal offence were she to do so. The pair could face charges of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
