Victoria Police closes investigation into former Lord Mayor Robert Doyle
Victoria Police say no charges will be laid against former Lord Mayor Robert Doyle following a two-year investigation into sexual harassment allegations.
Mr Doyle resigned as Lord Mayor in 2018 in the wake of findings of a City of Melbourne investigation after it was alleged he sexually harassed councillor Tessa Sullivan.
Another two women went to police with similar allegations.
The 66-year-old never responded to the accusations – his lawyers citing mental health concerns.
Victoria Police says it has conducted a thorough and complex two-year investigation but won’t be taking any further action.
They would not rule out re-opening the investigation, should more information come to hand.
