The former Children and Education Minister has thanked friends, family and members of the community for their support after it was confirmed that the Police investigation against him had not resulted in any charges.
Deputy Jeremy Maçon was arrested in March and removed from his role by the Chief Minister that day.
He then officially resigned as Minister in June, citing the “negative impact” of the investigation on himself and his family.
The allegations at the centre of the investigation have never been disclosed.
At the time, Deputy Macon was clear that his resignation was not an acceptance of guilt in relation to any allegation made against him, and said he had “every intention of fighting to clear my name.”
Today, it was confirmed that Deputy Maçon had been released from bail and that no further action would be taken by Police.
A Police spokesperson said: “A 34-year-old male arrested on 24 March, at a private address, has been released from bail, with no further police action, following consideration of a prosecution case file by the Law Officers’ Department.”
Deputy Maçon commented: “For the time being, I would like to thank my family, friends, colleagues and those in the community who have stood by me during this period.
“I have certainly learnt who I can rely on.”
Express asked the Government whether Deputy Maçon would now be invited to rejoin the Council of Ministers by the Chief Minister.
The question was not answered, with a Government spokesperson responding: “It would not be appropriate to comment any further now that no further police action is required, following consideration of a prosecution case file by the Law Officers’ Department.”
