Police Drop Rape Probe Into Tory MP Rosindell

London – Police have discontinued a rape and sexual assault investigation into Conservative MP Andrew Rosindell after a lengthy probe.

Scotland Yard said its “thorough investigation” found insufficient evidence to charge Rosindell, MP for Romford.

A spokesperson for the MP said he was “completely exonerated”.

Rosindell has not voted or spoken in parliament since April 2022, staying away while investigated.

He was arrested in May 2022 on suspicion of indecent assault, sexual assault, rape, abuse of trust and misconduct in public office.

The Met probe followed a January 2020 complaint about alleged 2002-2009 offences in London.

Rosindell denied wrongdoing and was never charged.

Despite nearly two years away, he continued parliamentary work including foreign trips.

He is set to stand again in Romford after local Tories unanimously reselected him last year.

A Met statement said the evidence did not meet the prosecution threshold. Rosindell was told no further action would be taken.

His spokesperson welcomed the “thorough investigation” concluding “no case to answer”.

Rosindell has been “completely exonerated” and will continue serving his Romford constituents as MP, they added.
