London: Singer Cliff Richard is pleased that he has been cleared of all sex abuse allegations.
The 75-year-old songwriter’s ongoing court case, which he has been battling against for over two years after the South Yorkshire police raided his mansion on live television without permission, has been completely shut down and he has been proved “innocent”, reported Female First.
“As I have said previously, I’m innocent, so I’m obviously pleased with today’s decision. I hope it brings this matter to a close,” he said.
Although Cliff’s case was dismissed earlier this year when the court felt there was “insufficient evidence” to charge him, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) had subsequently received two further accusations against the star musician after a second alleged victim, who claimed he had been assaulted by Richards, requested the case to be reviewed.
