KING Charles’s disgraced aide got a £60,000 pay-off when he was forced to step down from his charity over a cash for honours scandal.
Michael Fawcett, 60, received £190,000, including his three-figure salary, from The Prince’s Foundation in his last five months as chief executive, according to new accounts.
They are said to show Fawcett was paid £59,582, including £21,923 of holiday pay, plus £877 of pension contributions.
It is claimed he helped secure a CBE for a Saudi businessman who had donated £1.5million to royal causes.
Police gave a dossier of evidence to Crown Prosecution Service. They will decide before Christmas whether to bring charges.
The Prince’s Foundation told The Mail on Sunday they don’t “discuss staff salaries or payments”.
In February, the Metropolitan Police began an investigation into possible offences under the Honours Prevention of Abuses Act 1925.
Detectives from the Met’s special inquiry team, which also investigated the Downing Street “partygate”scandal appeared to show little progress at first.
On September 6, however, officers interviewed both a man aged in his fifties as well as a man aged in his forties.
Last night, Met confirmed that CPS evidence was presented to them on October 31.
