AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd’s lawyer said the charge of attempting to procure murder has been withdrawn due to a lack of evidence.
Paul Mabey QC said the Tauranga Crown Solicitor Greg Hollister-Jones had “formed the view that there was insufficient evidence to justify that charge”.
Mabey said Hollister-Jones had reviewed the police file and available evidence prior to his conclusion.
A spokesperson for the Crown Solicitor confirmed the charges had been withdrawn.
