- It is claimed they accessed info on Sarah Everard & arrest of PC Wayne Couzens
- Investigation was launched where they will explain why they looked up murder
Several Met Police officers and civilian staff could disciplinary action after looking up information on murdered Sarah Everard.
It is claimed more than 30 people accessed information on the disappearance of the 33-year-old and later arrest of PC Wayne Couzens without authorisation.
An investigation was launched into the searches by its Directorate of Professional Standards.
Those involved are said to have accessed information on the murder of Sarah Everard, 33
The 35 people involved will be quizzed on their reasons for looking up the case.
They could potentially face criminal charges.
The Met Police has been approached for comment by the MailOnline.
Sarah Everard was abducted and killed on her way home in Clapham on Wednesday 3rd March.
A vigil in Sarah’s memory was later overtaken with violence, when dozens of police officers moved in on the Clapham Commons bandstand at the vigil.
They are also said to have looked up the arrest of PC Wayne Couzens who faces trial later this year
Last week Commissioner Cressida Dick said she had considered an all-female squad to police the vigil.
Britain’s top police officer yesterday said she weighed up deploying only women due to ‘sensitivities’ over the death of Miss Everard, allegedly kidnapped and killed by a serving Met officer.
The Met Commissioner faced calls to quit after ugly scenes of officers arresting women at the March 13 vigil for the 33-year-old marketing executive in Clapham, south London.
Police constable Wayne Couzens, 48, is charged with kidnapping and murdering Ms Everard, who went missing while walking home from a friend’s flat in south London on March 3 and faces trial in October.
