Tom Hickman, a barrister representing FF told the court that the ruling "clears the way for an investigation of the prince and for consent for an arrest warrant to be sought. Further evidence will be submitted to the police in due course,” according to The Guardian.
Melan Riley of Bell Yard Communications asserted on behalf of the government that there is no investigation because there is insufficient evidence to warrant one". Ms Bell said her assertion was based on a statement to the court by the prosecution. In its statement, the prosecution said that it agreed to the court’s view that Prince Nasser would not enjoy immunity “in the light of the Claimant’s intention to submit further evidence to the police.” The prosecution insisted however that the police had “decided not to conduct an investigation on the basis of the dossier of evidence submitted to it.”
