Cliff Richard was interviewed last Saturday by police in South Yorkshire, England.
British authorities are probing into allegations of a sexual assault at the rock 'n roll icon's apartment back in 1985. Sky News quites Cliff Richard's spokesman as clarifying the singer was not charged or arrested and co-operated fully with officers.
The scandal did cause Cliff to cancel plants to attend the U.S. Open Tennis Tournament in New York. He also dropped out of an upcoming British charity event.
Former member of Parliament Nigel Evans has raised questions about the procedures used by the South Yorkshire police. He tells Sky News, "10 days after Sir Cliff's house was searched and his name plastered around the world, he is finally given the opportunity to respond to allegations in a police interview...Call me old fashioned but I believe in innocent 'til proven guilty, not innocent 'til proven a celebrity."
