Reading from a statement on Wednesday, Assistant Commissioner Peter Harvey, in charge of crime service, shared that:

"On November 20, police began Operation Protect and established a taskforce which initially comprised of 20 investigators and analysts.

'In the first several days of the investigation, the team focussed on identifying potential offences and evidence relating to and arising from actions and comments made by an individual."

After inquiries, he said, the advice provided back to investigators was that, based on limited evidence available for presentation to a court, the matter would not likely succeed or progress.

Based on that advice, no criminal charge would be laid by the taskforce investigators against the male at the centre of the investigation.

"From a criminal investigation perspective, the matter is complete," the statement ended.
