Kyere retired from the force in March 2021, meaning he worked as a police officer for 17 years following the alleged incident.

The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) has told VICE World News it will not investigate the incident.

“We received a referral from the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) in connection with this matter in December 2019,” a spokesperson for the IOPC said. “After careful consideration, and given the matter was already subject to a criminal investigation, we decided the MPS was suitably placed to continue to investigate the matter.”
