New police corruption alleged in secret report
Thursday 29 March 2012 - Andy Davies - Home Affairs Correspondent
http://www.channel4.com/news/new-police-corruption-alleged-in-secret-r eport
Exclusive: Corrupt police officers accused of deleting intelligence reports from the national police computer on the orders of criminal gangs in a secret report passed to the Leveson inquiry.
The confidential report produced by the Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca) in 2008, found that private investigators, linked to organised criminals, used corrupt serving and former police officers to delete intelligence records from law enforcement databases and access details of police operations. The report has been seen by Channel 4 News Home Affairs Correspondent Andy Davies.

The eight-page report, which has been passed to the Leveson inquiry into police corruption and media ethics, warns of "rogue" private investigators "providing organised crime groups with counter-surveillance techniques" and attempting to discover the identities of informants and witnesses under police protection.

The details in the report entitled "Private Investigators: The Rogue Element of the Private Investigation Industry and Others Unlawfully Trading in Personal Data" have never been disclosed publicly before, because the report is labelled "exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act 2000".

Soca analysed five UK Law enforcement operations leading up to 30 September 2007. The report says: "Four of the operations provided examples of corrupt individuals including serving and former police officers, a bank employee, employees in a communications service provider, a public service employee, and a HM Prison Service Employee. All of these were used by private investigators to facilitate access to information."

The former head of anti-corruption at the Met Police, Bob Quick, told Channel 4 News: "There were occasions where cases involved officers removing evidence, destroying evidence.

"This was infrequent but when it occurred it was serious. There were indications that that relationships existed with private investigators and ex-police officers who were suspected of corruption."

"If police operations against serious criminals are being undermined then that's very significant for justice and safety in this country."

It is not clear what action has been taken in the wake of these findings. The Chair of the Home Affairs Committee, Keith Vaz MP, told Channel 4 News on Thursday: "What we will have to do, and I will discuss this with colleagues on the committee, is to call in the then Home Secretary (Jacqui Smith) to ask whether or not she knew about what was going on, and certainly ask Soca to come in because this is signed off by Soca - they're supposed to be there to protect us from serious and organised crime. "

"If they knew that there was this widespread deletion of information, and the connection between private investigators and police officers who were involved in inappropriate action, it's very important that they come before the committee and explain themselves, as a matter of urgency."

The confidential Soca report details illegal acts by (unnamed) private investigators which go far beyond the sphere of privacy, describing how criminal gangs used private investigators to access police computers, enabling them to see - and even delete - evidence linked to live cases.

Under the heading Perverting the Course of Justice, the report records two operations providing:

"examples of private investigator activities which threaten to undermine the criminal justice system, as follows:

a. accessing the Police National Computer to perform unauthorised checks;

b. accessing internal police databases including those containing serving officers' private details;

c. unauthorised checking of details of vehicles involved in surveillance on PNC (Police National Computer);

d. accessing details of current investigation against a criminal or criminal group;

e. checking premises and vehicles for technical equipment deployed by law enforcement;

f. identifying current law enforcement interest in an organised crime group;

g. deleting intelligence records from law enforcement databases;

h. providing organised crime groups with counter-surveillance techniques;

i. accessing their own or associates' recorded convictions;

j. attempting to discover identity of CHISes (Informants)

k. attempting to discover location of witnesses;

l. attempting to discover location of witnesses under police protection to intimidate them;

m. accessing DVLA databases."



Currently there is no regulation of the private investigation industry, despite the fact that the Private Security Industry Act 2001 allowed specifically for licensing to be introduced. Anyone can undertake private investigative activity regardless of skills, experience or criminality. No one knows how many private investigators are operating in the UK. Estimates vary between 2000-10,000.

Soca warned the Home Office in its 2008 report: "The ability of the investigators to commit such criminality is supported by the absence of regulation in the industry, an abundance of law enforcement expertise either through corrupt contacts or from a previous career in law enforcement, easy access to specialist experts and abuse of legally-available technology."

A Home Office spokesperson told Channel 4 News: "We are considering whether to regulate private investigators. In the meantime they are subject to the law on intercepting communications like everyone else."

It is not known what Lord Leveson intends to do with this report of much wider police corruption than he is currently investigating.

Stephen Lawrence inquiry: despite murder convictions, questions remain

Victim's mother, Doreen Lawrence, says corruption allegations relating to the case must be examined
http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2012/mar/16/stephen-lawrence-inquiry-ques tions-remain
Vikram Dodd
guardian.co.uk, Friday 16 March 2012 21.30 GMT

For a decade, allegations and claims of corruption have been mounting in the Stephen Lawrence case. Despite the conviction of two people for the murder, Doreen Lawrence believes this avenue of investigation must be pursued too. Here are details of the allegations against some of those involved in the case, all of whom deny any wrongdoing.

The gangster father of David Norris, a prime suspect for the Lawrence murder who was finally convicted in January this year. It is alleged that Clifford Norris used his influence to protect his son.

Clifford Robert Norris was suspected by law enforcement of "involvement in organised crime, including armed robbery, importation and supply of drugs and murder", according to police documents.

Just after the Lawrence murder, Clifford came back to Eltham, south London, from a self-imposed exile overseas to keep out of the reach of Customs.

David Norris was also being investigated for an attack on Stacey Benefield. He stabbed the youth in his chest in the street.

Clifford is said to have returned to the Eltham area no later than 1 June, 1993, to bribe, cajole and threaten Benefield, with help from a henchman.

The approach to Benefield was made three days after he had picked David Norris out of an identity parade. Clifford and a henchman even knew what room the identity parade had taken place in.

Clifford bragged to Benefield that he was "on the run from the police", but he was "not to worry as he was putting his face up front and nothing was happening", according to documents seen by the Guardian. One baffling feature of the 1993 investigation was the fact the five prime suspects were not arrested for a fortnight, despite numerous people naming them to police. The Met originally claimed its inquiry was hampered by a wall of silence, a claim debunked by the Macpherson inquiry.

Clifford Norris, says a senior source, knew that to protect his son, he would also have to look after the other suspects.

On 1 December 1993, a Special Branch officer based at Gatwick airport informed the Lawrence investigation that three suspects for the murder – Gary Dobson, Jamie Acourt and David Norris – would be arriving after a holiday in Lanzarotte. They suspected that Clifford would be with them, travelling under a false name as he was wanted by Customs.

Fast forward to 1997, and Clifford Norris was in jail. Supposedly, the threat he posed to the witnesses had been neutralised. One potential witness had been moved out of the Eltham area by police as part of the witness protection scheme and had been moving from address to address, his true identity kept secret. One night, however, the witness was returning home when the long reach of Clifford Norris got to him.

The witness, still terrified for his life, said: "I was going in my block of flats, my door was brightly lit and everything else was dark. Someone pulled up in a car at the end of the alleyway 30 yards away and shouted, 'We know who you are and we're going to get you.'" The witness claims that Clifford Norris was behind the threat: "I was adamant who it was, no one else would do that, I'd never upset anyone else enough to do that."

In 2006, Norris told the Observer: "I never became involved with underhand dealings or giving money to coppers."
Commander Ray Adams

By 1993, Ray Adams was a police commander in the south London area where Stephen Lawrence was murdered.

His only documented involvement – and he insists his only involvement – in the case was to sign a letter to the Lawrence family, one week after the murder.

In his 1999 report, Sir William Macpherson outlines the Lawrences' claims that Adams may have had links to Clifford Norris. Adams gave evidence to the inquiry for two days. The former head of criminal intelligence for the Met said he had no contact with Clifford Norris and did not know him.

Sir William concluded that while there were "strange features" to Adams's account, there was no evidence to support the allegations against him. Macpherson wrote: "Whatever maybe the suspicions of Mr and Mrs Lawrence's legal team, there was never any substantiation of the allegations that were made ... We have seen nothing to suggest Mr Adams was involved in collusion or corruptly involved in efforts to hold back this prosecution."

Macpherson's adviser, Richard Stone, says the inquiry was not told of the two reports containing information about Adams, from Operation Russell and Operation Othona. Among police officers one aspect of Adams life that raised questions was the fact he lived in an expensive house called Wildacre in Shirley, Surrey, which backed on to a golf course. That seemed unaffordable on a Met commander's salary, which in the late 1980s would have been approximately £30,000. One claim was that his wife was wealthy and thus the couple could afford the house.

Adams told the Guardian that the allegation that he had taken money from a criminal was wrong. He said the criminal had bribed a different officer, and Adams had told investigators the identities of the corrupt police officers. He also said he did not know who former detective sergeant John Davidson was. Adams's close associate, DC Alan "Taffy'' Holmes shot himself dead on 27 July , 1987, on the eve of Adams being interviewed by corruption investigators. Holmes had been interviewed twice, and was expected to face further questioning.
John Davidson and Neil Putnam

Detective Sergeant Davidson's conduct during the failed Lawrence murder investigation was heavily criticised by the Macpherson inquiry. A veteran sergeant, he controlled much of the flow of information as head of the "outside team". The Macpherson report said there was no reason to think he was corrupt, but found he had alienated potential witnesses by his manner and mishandled a potentially vital informant. In 1998, Davidson was arrested at his London home which was raided over corruption allegations, but he was released without charge.

The Guardian first reported in 2002, and then the BBC in 2006, allegations from a former detective that Davidson admitted a connection to Clifford Norris. Davidson denies the claims that he was in the pay of Clifford Norris, made by Neil Putnam.

Putnam, a self-confessed corrupt detective turned supergrass, said the two were on duty together when Davidson told him: "'Old man Norris' – I assumed old man Norris was Clifford – 'had been putting some work our way.'"

Davidson left the Met in 1998 for medical reasons. He now runs a bar in Spain called The Smugglers. He denies any wrongdoing. In 2006, a senior Met officer, John Yates, told the BBC: "From all the evidence I've seen, and the intelligence I've seen, I have no doubt he was corrupt." But no charges were brought against Davidson.

A 2007 report from the Independent Police Complaints Commission report recorded Putnam's allegations against Davidson, also seen in police witness statements seen by The Guardian:

"There were three specific allegations against Davidson:the disposal of two stolen watches given to him by Putnam: the handling of stolen electrical equipment following the theft and recovery of a lorry owned by a mail order company: and the theft of cocaine from a drug dealer." That IPCC document also said: "Davidson was due to appear before a disciplinary tribunal in April 1998; however he left the Police Service on retirement in March 1998. The Lawrence family were not told of these allegations during the Macpherson inquiry.

The IPCC dismissed a claim from Putnam that he told the Met in 1998 that Davidson had admitted knowing Norris, and the force had covered it up. It found no evidence of a link between Davidson and Norris, nor of any corruption in the first Lawrence murder investigation.
DC David Coles

The Macpherson inquiry heard that a Met detective, Detective Constable David Coles, was seen by customs agents with Clifford Norris. Surveillance officers recorded the detective meeting the criminal at least three times at the Tiger's Head pub in Chislehurst, Kent. Packages were recorded being exchanged. Coles has claimed that he was grooming Norris as an informant, although at the time Norris was on the run.

This is truly a brilliant report on this whole stinking business.
One of the best EVER from ITN

Murdered Daniel Morgan's family seek judicial inquiry
http://www.channel4.com/news/murdered-daniel-morgans-family-demand-jud icial-inquiry
Monday 21 May 2012 - Andy Davies - Home Affairs Correspondent
The family of murdered private investigator Daniel Morgan tell Channel 4 News that the only option left to them now is a judicial inquiry into his death.
Their calls for an inquiry followed a meeting with representatives from Scotland Yard and the Crown Prosecution Service to discuss the findings of a review into the last (and fifth) investigation into what remains one of the Metropolitan Police's most notorious unsolved murders.
The most recent investigation collapsed last March, undermined by police failures to disclose documents to the defence and key "supergrass" witnesses who were found to be unreliable.
"We are not going to leave it alone,'' said Isobel Hulsmann, whose son Daniel was found with an axe embedded in his skull in a south London car park in March 1987.
On the handling of the subsequent investigations, the 84-year-old from Hay-on-Wye told Channel 4 News that the family have been "treated shabbily" and have "been battling against enormous odds'".
The first investigation into Daniel Morgan's murder was, by the admission of Scotland Yard, "tainted" by police corruption.
It was described by former Assistant Commissioner John Yates, in a letter to the Metropolitan Police Authority six years ago, as a "deplorable episode in the history of the Metropolitan Police service".
One of the detectives in the initial inquiry, Sid Fillery, who was close to one of the suspects, was charged with perverting the course of justice, but was eventually acquitted. In 25 years, no one has been convicted of the murder.
Daniel's brother Alastair has led a relentless campaign to get to the truth of what really happened to his brother and the subsequent investigations into his murder.
Utterly disillusioned with the police, however, the family remain adamant that the only course of action left to them is an independent judicial inquiry. The Home Office today would not be drawn on the prospects of such a move.
A spokeswoman told Channel 4 News: "It is deeply regrettable that Daniel Morgan's killers have not been brought to justice and we understand the strength of feeling this case has caused.
"We will carefully consider the Metropolitan Police and Crown Prosecution Service's joint report into the case."

People don’t want to believe that the police in the UK are as bent as every where else. Where I live it is taken for granted that they are corrupt, but when I tell them where I am from they comment that we don’t have a problem with our police. The truth is, we do. The difference is they are more obvious here, they don’t try and deny it, or hide it, and it is a way of life. In many countries like the UK they hide it, which for me is even worse.
When you look at the number of unexplained deaths over the years, it is a lot higher than most people realise, this does not include murders, or deaths that the public find suspicious either. The British police and all the other “shadowy” security services are as bad as any other and are more than capable of corrupt practices, which include murder, and the sooner the public realises this is a fact, the quicker something may be able to be done.
The site below makes interesting reading.

One of Scotland Yard's most senior counter-terrorism officers has pleaded not guilty to charges of misconduct in public office, after allegedly offering to provide the News of the World with information about a police inquiry into phone hacking at the paper.

Former head of Met Police warns of ‘crisis of morale’
http://www.thesundaytimes.co.uk/sto/news/uk_news/National/article11598 19.ece
The Home Office has ordered police forces to axe 20% from their budgets by 2015 (Leon Neal)
THE former head of the Metropolitan Police has warned of a “national crisis” in police morale, saying many officers believe austerity-related reforms have been forced on them without any consultation.
Lord Stevens, who was the Met’s commissioner from 2000 until 2005, is chairing the Independent Commission on the Future of Policing.
His words follow a poll of 14,000 serving officers by the commission, which found that 95% do not feel they have the support of the government, while only 0.1% of those surveyed thought ministers offered the police “a great deal of support”.
Stevens told The Sunday Telegraph: “We have a national crisis of morale which threatens to undermine the work our officers are doing.
“If we’re asking men and women to put their lives on the line to protect us, then I think they should know they’ve got the full support of the government. =

New police corruption alleged in secret report
Thursday 29 March 2012 - Andy Davies - Home Affairs Correspondent

Exclusive: Corrupt police officers accused of deleting intelligence reports from the national police computer on the orders of criminal gangs in a secret report passed to the Leveson inquiry.

The report says: "Four of the operations provided examples of corrupt individuals including serving and former police officers, a bank employee, employees in a communications service provider, a public service employee, and a HM Prison Service Employee. All of these were used by private investigators to facilitate access to information."

The former head of anti-corruption at the Met Police, Bob Quick, told Channel 4 News: "There were occasions where cases involved officers removing evidence, destroying evidence.

"This was infrequent but when it occurred it was serious. There were indications that that relationships existed with private investigators and ex-police officers who were suspected of corruption."

"If police operations against serious criminals are being undermined then that's very significant for justice and safety in this country."

A senior detective close to a phone-hacking probe tried to sell information to the News of the World including claims that former deputy prime minister John Prescott had been 'interfering' with the investigation, jurors were told today.

Detective Chief Inspector April Casburn, 53, is accused of offering the now-defunct tabloid information about Operation Varec, the investigation into whether Scotland Yard’s inquiry into phone hacking should be reopened.

She is accused of one count of misconduct in public office on September 11, 2010, which she denies.



On trial: Detective Chief Inspector April Casburn (left) has been accused of trying to sell information to the News of the World about a Met Police phone-hacking probe, including claims that former deputy prime minister John Prescott (right) was 'interfering' with the investigation

At that time, she was working in counter terrorism, managing the National Terrorist Financial Investigation Unit.

Today Southwark Crown Court was told that one of her team had been asked to carry out financial investigations as part of the Scotland Yard probe into phone hacking.

It is alleged that she rang the news desk of the tabloid at 7.51am that Saturday morning to offer information in exchange for payment.

The court heard that the call was taken by a journalist called Tim Wood, who was then a news editor for the NotW.

He said the caller refused to give her name, but introduced herself as a senior police officer.

Mr Wood told the jury: 'The one thing that stands out in my mind is the fact that she kept going on about Lord Prescott.

'Her saying that he was pressing for them to put charges on the News of the World, and she was saying that she felt it was wrong that he was interfering in the scandal, so to speak, and she resented that.'



Claims: Casburn allegedly also told the news editor of the News of the World that six people were under investigation including former NotW editor Andy Coulson (left) and reporter Sean Hoare (right)

He added: 'She was almost justifying her call by saying that it was this interference by Prescott that had upset her.'

Mr Wood sent an email to news editor Ian Edmondson and crime journalist Lucy Panton after the call to say that a police officer wanted 'to sell inside information' on the phone-hacking inquiry.

Casburn told him that six people were under investigation including former NotW editor Andy Coulson and reporter Sean Hoare, Mr Wood said.

She also mentioned that 'counter-terrorism assets' were being used in the probe, which was 'highly unusual'.

Prosecutor Mark Bryant-Heron said: 'The prosecution says she sought to undermine a highly sensitive and high-profile investigation at the point of its launch.

'The prosecution say, and it’s a matter for you 12, that the act of telephoning the News of the World to offer to sell information and the provision of some information during that call was misconduct, it was misconduct in public office.

'It was a gross breach of the trust that the public places in a police officer not to disclose information on a current investigation in an unauthorised way, or to offer to do so in the future for payment'.

Chris Plumley C4 Dispatches Correspondent exposes City of London Police waste of £1,000,000.00 on Operation Bohan, a Counter Terrorism Directorate operation to remove Ian Puddick's website
http://www.policeexpenses.co.uk
Ian Puddick was brutalised in Custody & cctv wiped, the officers (DS John Ellis & DC Colin Dawson) did not deny brutalising Ian, they just told the ipcc that they 'could not remember anything'.
The ippc did not think this was odd ?
Later at trial, Ellis under oath told the court 'he found large quanities of class A drugs in home', however he was then forced to admit he forgot to sieze them, to mention the drugs find to any of the other officers on the search, to make a note in his book or to call and inform his boss.
He made it up on the spot, it was clear Perjury.
Again the IPCC did not find this behaviour odd at all.

EXPLOSIVE revelations from Tom Harper at the Independent this week
Follows on from previous reports but absolutely shocking nevertheless
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/the-corruption-of-brita in-uks-key-institutions-infiltrated-by-criminals-9052617.html
Friday 10 January 2014
The entire criminal justice system was infiltrated by organised crime gangs, according to a secret Scotland Yard report leaked to The Independent.
In 2003 Operation Tiberius found that men suspected of being Britain’s most notorious criminals had compromised multiple agencies, including HM Revenue & Customs, the Crown Prosecution Service, the City of London Police and the Prison Service, as well as pillars of the criminal justice system including juries and the legal profession.
The strategic intelligence scoping exercise – “ratified by the most senior management” at the Met – uncovered jurors being bought off or threatened to return not-guilty verdicts; corrupt individuals working for HMRC, both in the UK and overseas; and “get out of jail free cards” being bought for £50,000.

Revealed: How gangs used the Freemasons to corrupt police

Secret networks of Freemasons have been used by organised crime gangs to corrupt the criminal justice system, according to a bombshell Metropolitan Police report leaked to The Independent






By TOM HARPER
Monday 13 January 2014
Secret networks of Freemasons have been used by organised crime gangs to corrupt the criminal justice system, according to a bombshell Metropolitan Police report leaked to The Independent.
Operation Tiberius, written in 2002, found underworld syndicates used their contacts in the controversial brotherhood to “recruit corrupted officers” inside Scotland Yard, and concluded it was one of “the most difficult aspects of organised crime corruption to proof against”.
The report – marked “Secret” – found serving officers in East Ham east London who were members of the Freemasons attempted to find out which detectives were suspected of links to organised crime from other police sources who were also members of the society.
Famous for its secret handshakes, Freemasonry has long been suspected of having members who work in the criminal justice system – notably the judiciary and the police.
The political establishment and much of the media often dismiss such ideas as the work of conspiracy theorists. However, Operation Tiberius is the second secret police report revealed by The Independent in the last six months to highlight the possible issue.
Project Riverside, a 2008 report on the rogue private investigations industry by the Serious Organised Crime Agency, also claimed criminals attempt to corrupt police officers through Freemason members in a bid to further their interests.
Concerns over the influence of freemasons on the criminal justice system in 1998 led former Home Secretary Jack Straw to order that all police officers and judges should declare membership of the organisation.
However, ten of Britain’s 43 police forces refused to take part and the policy was dropped under threat of legal action. In England and Wales, the Grand Master of the Freemasons is Prince Edward, Duke of Kent. The United Grand Lodge of England declined to comment last night.
The Independent revealed last week that Operation Tiberius found that organised crime syndicates such as the Adams family and the gang led by David Hunt were able to infiltrate the Met “at will”.
Asked to comment on the Tiberius report, a spokesman for Scotland Yard said: “The Metropolitan Police Service will not tolerate any behaviour by our officers and staff which could damage the trust placed in police by the public.
“We are determined to pursue corruption in all its forms and with all possible vigour.”

The strategic intelligence scoping exercise – “ratified by the most senior management” at the Met – uncovered jurors being bought off or threatened to return not-guilty verdicts; corrupt individuals working for HMRC, both in the UK and overseas; and “get out of jail free cards” being bought for £50,000.
The report states that the infiltration made it almost impossible for police and prosecutors to successfully pursue the organised gangs that police suspected controlled much of the criminal underworld.
The author of Tiberius, which was compiled from intelligence sources including covert police informants, live telephone intercepts, briefings from the security services and thousands of historical files, came to the desperate conclusion: “Quite how much more damage could be done is difficult to imagine.”

Stephen Lawrence exclusive: Links between 'corrupt' officer on investigation and racist murder gang were suppressed to protect Met chief
...A memo written in 2000 by a Met Police lawyer suggests the force suppressed information that John Davidson, a detective sergeant on the original botched investigation, was connected to the father of David Norris, one of the racist gang who stabbed Stephen Lawrence to death in 1993.
The file goes on to warn a police officer who was preparing to leak information on the Lawrence case to a journalist that “disclosures relevant to DS Davidson’s contact with the Norris family could have an adverse effect on the Commissioner’s position in the on-going High Court action by Mr and Mrs Lawrence”....
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/exclusive-links-between-cor rupt-officer-and-stephen-lawrence-murder-gang-suppressed-9180093.html

The memo from David Hamilton of the Met’s directorate of legal services corroborates incendiary claims by police “supergrass” Neil Putnam. He has always maintained he told the Met in 1998 of the alleged corrupt relationship between Davidson and Clifford Norris right in the middle of a judicial inquiry into the appalling case.

Exclusive: Major murder case collapses in new 'police corruption' scandal
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/exclusive-major-murder-case -collapses-in-new-police-corruption-scandal-9553023.html
Major case dropped after prosecutors found links with officers who were under investigation

Layla Holliday, whose father Selhouk Behdjet was murdered in 1994
By TOM HARPER
Friday 20 June 2014
Scotland Yard is facing serious questions after the prosecution of a man charged with murder quietly collapsed following an investigation into alleged police corruption.
In a devastating new blow to the Metropolitan Police, it can be revealed that one of the reasons the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) offered no evidence against Ali Tasci, charged with stabbing a man to death, was because prosecutors had belatedly discovered the case may have been tainted.
The initial investigation into the murder was led by an officer who rose to a senior rank in the Met – and who was later identified as corrupt in a secret police report. It is also understood that another corrupt officer not involved in the original investigation was present at the crime scene before anyone had called 999.
The family of the victim, Selhouk Behdjet, had no idea that an inquiry into suspected corruption had any influence on the decision to drop the prosecution at the Old Bailey earlier this year until they were contacted by The Independent. Mr Tasci has always denied the charges. News that a murder inquiry may have been compromised and a prosecution was later dropped poses disturbing questions over the extent of wrongdoing inside the Met, and raises fresh concerns over whether Scotland Yard under its current Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe is willing to confront corruption in its ranks.
The Behdjet case has echoes of the recent scandals surrounding two other high-profile murder cases, those of Stephen Lawrence and Daniel Morgan, where police corruption was said to have tainted the inquiries. The Morgan case remains unsolved.
Mr Tasci was charged with the murder of Mr Behdjet, a drug trafficker who was killed in his flat in north London in 1994.
Selhouk Behdjet was murdered in 1994 Selhouk Behdjet was murdered in 1994

It is understood he was killed over a drugs deal involving several kilogrammes of heroin. The murder remained unsolved for almost 20 years until a cold-case review by the Met identified new forensic evidence and led the CPS to charge Mr Tasci in 2012.
The review by a Scotland Yard murder squad also identified historical intelligence on police corruption related to the case, but the potential vulnerabilities were not shared with the CPS before prosecutors made the decision to charge Mr Tasci in 2012. The Met said it was “not aware” of this.
Mr Tasci, 51, was then held on remand for two years inside Belmarsh, a high-security prison in south-east London which houses the most dangerous offenders.
For reasons that are unclear, a new investigation by the Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards into the original 1994 inquiry began in 2013 – one year after Mr Tasci was charged and awaiting trial. The Scotland Yard inquiry found no evidence of police corruption. However, the CPS said the results of the investigation did in part contribute to the decision to offer no evidence against Mr Tasci at a pre-trial hearing at the Old Bailey in February.
In a statement, the CPS said it wrote to the family “to explain the central reasons for offering no evidence” which included the fact that some “key witnesses” had subsequently died while others could no longer be relied upon.
Senior CPS sources said it also offered the family a meeting when it would have raised the investigation by the Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards if the offer had been accepted.
However, the daughter of Mr Behdjet, who lives with her elderly mother, says they have never received any correspondence from the CPS.
Layla Holliday, who was six months’ pregnant when she learnt of her father’s murder, said: “I was shocked when The Independent told me about this. The police told me it was for other reasons and I trusted what they were saying.
“You always hear of suspected corruption and cover-ups but you never think it would be this close to home.”
A CPS spokesman said the investigation by the Met’s anti-corruption command led prosecutors to “conclude that the integrity of the crime scene could not be guaranteed”. The Met said it was “not aware” of the crime scene’s alleged compromise.
Layla Holliday recalls one of the police officers identified by The Independent visiting her home a couple of weeks after her father’s murder. She said: “He was asking me where all my dad’s money was. It was an odd question and made me more suspicious as my dad’s flat was ransacked after he was killed and we thought the police had been going through things which didn’t really relate to the investigation. At the time we just assumed they were doing their job.”
A police source familiar with the case said: “This news will cause utter chaos inside the Met. You can’t mess about with murder – it is the most serious offence on the books. There has been a massive cover-up to protect the reputation of the police and the family have been misled.
“The Met claims other damaging cases like the murders of Stephen Lawrence and Daniel Morgan were all such a long time ago. Well, this prosecution collapsed in 2014 and the full reasons were suppressed.
“I am afraid there is a cancer at the heart of Scotland Yard that has never, ever been dealt with.”

Police files reveal 'endemic corruption' at the Met
Documents show how organised crime networks were able to infiltrate the force 'at will'
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/police-files-reveal-endemic -corruption-at-the-met-9644667.html

Tom Harper - INVESTIGATIONS REPORTER - Sunday 03 August 2014

Scotland Yard holds an astonishing 260 crates of documents on police corruption in one corner of London alone – and very few of the rogue detectives have ever been successfully prosecuted.

A review led by one of Britain's most senior police officers has unearthed a mammoth amount of intelligence spawned by Operation Tiberius, a secret police report written in 2002 that concluded there was "endemic corruption" inside the Metropolitan Police.

The file found organised crime networks in north-east London were able to infiltrate the Met "at will" to frustrate the criminal justice system.

The huge number of crates, revealed in a letter by Craig Mackey, the Met's deputy commissioner, indicates the scale of criminality inside Scotland Yard's north-east London units, which appears to have gone almost unchallenged since Tiberius was compiled 12 years ago.

Research suggests that only a tiny number of the scores of then-serving and former police officers named as corrupt by Tiberius have been convicted.

In a letter to Keith Vaz, chairman of the Home Affairs Committee, Mr Mackey warned that the mountain of evidence against his officers is likely to continue growing. He said: "This number [of crates] is likely to expand as linked operations are identified."

Following a series of scandals surrounding the Stephen Lawrence and Daniel Morgan murders, the news will renew fears that the Met remains unwilling to confront corruption in its ranks.

In correspondence published quietly on the parliamentary website, it emerged that Scotland Yard had handed only six heavily redacted pages of Operation Tiberius to the committee, following a request from MPs for the controversial report. Its full length extends to about 170 pages.

None of the sheets released to the committee mentioned the "endemic corruption" inside Scotland Yard – or any of the shocking details of how organised crime syndicates bribed scores of former and then-serving detectives in order to access confidential databases; obtain live intelligence on criminal investigations; provide specialist knowledge of surveillance, technical deployment and undercover techniques to help to evade prosecution; and take part in criminal acts such as mass drug importation and money laundering.

In his letter, Mr Mackey said: "In my view, the release of the documents held for … Operation Tiberius at this time would not be in the public interest."

Mr Vaz said: "I am deeply concerned by the sheer amount of evidence relating to corruption in the Met. While I understand the need for sensitivity regarding current investigations, I find the amount of redaction in the reports sent to the committee baffling.

"London's police force are seen as the gold standard for the rest of the UK. It is vital that we understand the full facts in order to root out corruption in the police. I look forward to receiving the information on the numbers of officers who have been convicted in relation to these operations, as promised by Mr Mackey."

The police chief also revealed that the Met's discredited 2012 review of the Stephen Lawrence murder had "input" from the Scotland Yard press office prior to publication, but was "ultimately endorsed as suitable for public release" by the former head of the anti-corruption command, deputy assistant commissioner Patricia Gallan.

Stephen Lawrence
In March, a major review of the Lawrence case concluded that Scotland Yard had provided "misleading reassurance" over police malpractice in the Lawrence inquiry and found the 2012 Met report to be "ill judged".

The memo detailed that intelligence was inexplicably shredded by the Met in 2001, including evidence that officers stole and trafficked illegal drugs, shared rewards with informants, faked applications for more payouts, sold confidential information to criminals and accepted bribes to destroy and fabricate evidence.

However, the Met was criticised earlier this year when it emerged that the review, written by Detective Superintendent David Hurley, had not made it clear that it could not find the intelligence as it had been destroyed – triggering amazement from a senior police officer who had presided over the original £8m investigation, codenamed Operation Othona.

In a statement released following Mr Mackey's appearance in front of MPs, Scotland Yard said: "In hindsight, the MPS accepts Mark Ellison's view that this report was produced in too tight a timescale, which was unrealistic and ill judged, leading to the view that the MPS was attempting to provide false reassurance to the Lawrence family."

IPCC to oversee a further 12 cases of alleged historical corruption within the Metropolitan Police
https://www.ipcc.gov.uk/news/ipcc-investigate-allegations-historic-cor ruption-relating-child-sexual-abuse-metropolitan

Thursday Sep 17, 2015
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is to manage a further 12 investigations detailing allegations of corruption in the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) and one allegation detailing corruption in Essex Police. All relate to child sex offences dating from the 1970s to the 2000s.

The investigations are to be conducted by the MPS Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS) but will be overseen, and have the terms of the investigation set, by the IPCC. The majority of the investigations stem from allegations made by retired MPS officers.

This is in addition to the 17 investigations announced earlier this year. All relate to allegations about:

• Suppressing evidence;
• Hindering or halting investigations;
• Covering up the offences because of the involvement of members of parliament and police officers
IPCC Commissioner Jennifer Izekor said: “We are continuing to receive further referrals from the Met and have now assessed that a further 12 require management by the IPCC in addition to one from Essex Police. Our investigators will now oversee these investigations and ensure they meet our robust standards.”

Background

These 13 referrals are:

1) Allegation that a prosecution against a government official who was in possession of indecent images of children was not pursued following instruction from senior officers and lawyers.

2) Allegation that an investigation into a paedophile ring in south-west London in the 1970s was shut down prematurely on instruction of senior or high-ranking officers.

3) Allegation that evidence, relating to child abuse at a youth club in 1980s and 1990s that involved politicians and council officers, went missing from a London police station.

4) Allegation that an MP was only charged with specimen charges for child sex offences and not more numerous or serious offences.

5) Allegation that paperwork and evidence relating to child sex offences involving an MP disappeared and the MP was released without charge

6) Allegation of a failure to investigate child sex offences involving an MP due to instructions from senior or high-ranking officers.

7) Allegations about attempts by Special Branch in the 1970s to interfere in an investigation that would have revealed an MP to be involved in child sex offences.

Cool Allegations an investigation into a west London paedophile ring in the 1980s had evidence removed and was threatened with closure by senior officer if it uncovered evidence against VIPs.

9) Allegation that an MP was arrested and then released without charge on the instruction of senior officers following an investigation into a south London paedophile ring in the 1980s. Also alleges officers were threatened with breaking the Official Secrets Act if they spoke of the events.

10) Allegation that an investigation into child sex abuse in central London in the 1980s was halted when it became apparent that an MP was involved.

11) Allegation that an investigation into child sex offences committed by an MP was taken over by officers from Special Branch and then not progressed.

12) Allegation that an officer serving with the MPS was involved in a paedophile ring in north London and that evidence was covered up by Special Branch.

13) Allegation that intelligence was provided by a witness, during a separate investigation, indicating an MP was involved in child sex abuse and that this was not investigated. (Essex)


PREVIOUS ROUND FROM MARCH

IPCC to investigate allegations of historic corruption relating to child sexual abuse in the Metropolitan Police

Mar 16, 2015

1) Allegation of a potential cover up around failures to properly investigate child sex abuse offences in South London and further information about criminal allegations against a politician being dropped.

2) Allegation that an investigation involving a proactive operation targeting young men in Dolphin Square, was stopped because officers were too near prominent people.

3) Allegation that a document was found at an address of a paedophile that originated from the Houses of Parliament listing a number of highly prominent individuals (MPs and senior police officers) as being involved in a paedophile ring and no further action was taken.

4) Allegation that an account provided by an abuse victim had been altered to omit the name of a senior politician.

5) Allegation that an investigation into a paedophile ring, in which a number of people were convicted, did not take action in relation to other more prominent individuals

6) Allegations that a politician had spoken with a senior MPS officer and demanded no action was taken regarding a paedophile ring and boys being procured and supplied to prominent persons in Westminster in the 1970s.

7) Allegation that in the late 1970s a surveillance operation that gathered intelligence on a politician being involved in paedophile activities was closed down by a senior MPS officer.

Cool Allegation that a dossier of allegations against senior figures and politicians involved in child abuse were taken by Special Branch officers.

9) Allegations that a surveillance operation of a child abuse ring was subsequently shut down due to high profile people being involved.

10) Allegations of child sex abuse against a senior politician and a subsequent cover-up of his crimes.

11) Allegations that during a sexual abuse investigation a senior officer instructed the investigation be halted and that that order had come from ‘up high’ in the MPS.

12) Allegation of a conspiracy within the MPS to prevent the prosecution of a politician suspected of offences.

13) Allegations against a former senior MPS officer regarding child sex abuse and that further members of the establishment including judges were involved. It is claimed that no further action was taken.

14) Allegation that police officers sexually abused a boy and carried out surveillance on him. Further allegations of financial corruption in a London borough police force.

A further two referrals of a similar nature have been received from the MPS and are currently being assessed.

Monday 13 January 2014
Secret networks of Freemasons have been used by organised crime gangs to corrupt the criminal justice system, according to a bombshell Metropolitan Police report leaked to The Independent.
Operation Tiberius, written in 2002, found underworld syndicates used their contacts in the controversial brotherhood to “recruit corrupted officers” inside Scotland Yard, and concluded it was one of “the most difficult aspects of organised crime corruption to proof against”.
The report – marked “Secret” – found serving officers in East Ham east London who were members of the Freemasons attempted to find out which detectives were suspected of links to organised crime from other police sources who were also members of the society.
Famous for its secret handshakes, Freemasonry has long been suspected of having members who work in the criminal justice system – notably the judiciary and the police.
The political establishment and much of the media often dismiss such ideas as the work of conspiracy theorists. However, Operation Tiberius is the second secret police report revealed by The Independent in the last six months to highlight the possible issue.
Project Riverside, a 2008 report on the rogue private investigations industry by the Serious Organised Crime Agency, also claimed criminals attempt to corrupt police officers through Freemason members in a bid to further their interests.
Concerns over the influence of freemasons on the criminal justice system in 1998 led former Home Secretary Jack Straw to order that all police officers and judges should declare membership of the organisation.
However, ten of Britain’s 43 police forces refused to take part and the policy was dropped under threat of legal action. In England and Wales, the Grand Master of the Freemasons is Prince Edward, Duke of Kent. The United Grand Lodge of England declined to comment last night.
The Independent revealed last week that Operation Tiberius found that organised crime syndicates such as the Adams family and the gang led by David Hunt were able to infiltrate the Met “at will”.
Asked to comment on the Tiberius report, a spokesman for Scotland Yard said: “The Metropolitan Police Service will not tolerate any behaviour by our officers and staff which could damage the trust placed in police by the public.
“We are determined to pursue corruption in all its forms and with all possible vigour.”

The corruption of Britain: UK’s key institutions infiltrated by criminals
Secret report shows how organised crime infiltrated judicial system as well as police with prison service and HM Revenue & Customs also compromised
Tom Harper @TomJHarper Friday 10 January 2014
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/the-corruption-of-brita in-uk-s-key-institutions-infiltrated-by-criminals-9052617.html

The entire criminal justice system was infiltrated by organised crime gangs, according to a secret Scotland Yard report leaked to The Independent.

In 2003 Operation Tiberius found that men suspected of being Britain’s most notorious criminals had compromised multiple agencies, including HM Revenue & Customs, the Crown Prosecution Service, the City of London Police and the Prison Service, as well as pillars of the criminal justice system including juries and the legal profession.


The strategic intelligence scoping exercise – “ratified by the most senior management” at the Met – uncovered jurors being bought off or threatened to return not-guilty verdicts; corrupt individuals working for HMRC, both in the UK and overseas; and “get out of jail free cards” being bought for £50,000.

The report states that the infiltration made it almost impossible for police and prosecutors to successfully pursue the organised gangs that police suspected controlled much of the criminal underworld.

The author of Tiberius, which was compiled from intelligence sources including covert police informants, live telephone intercepts, briefings from the security services and thousands of historical files, came to the desperate conclusion: “Quite how much more damage could be done is difficult to imagine.”

The fresh revelations come a day after The Independent revealed that Tiberius had concluded the Metropolitan Police suffered “endemic police corruption” at the time, and that some of Britain’s most dangerous organised crime syndicates were able to infiltrate New Scotland Yard “at will”.

In its conclusions, the report stated: “The true assessment of the damage caused by these corrupt networks is impossible to make at this stage, until further proactive scoping has been undertaken.

“However a statement by an experienced SIO [senior investigating officer] currently attached to SO 1(3) gives some indication of the depth of the problem in east and north-east London: ‘I feel that at the current time I cannot carry out an ethical murder investigation without the fear of it being compromised.’

“The ramifications of this statement are serious and disturbing and provide a snapshot of the current threat to the criminal justice system. Additionally the fact that none of these syndicates have been seriously disrupted over the last five years provides an insight into the effectiveness of their networks.”

In one case identified by Tiberius, a leading criminal was acquitted of importing cannabis after he allegedly “bought” members of the jury hearing his case. A named police officer “was involved in some way or another”, according to the report.

Tiberius also revealed the Met was concerned at the time with a national newspaper story on the ability of the Adams family to escape the law by penetrating the criminal justice system.

In 1998, police appeared to have finally made a breakthrough when Tommy Adams was jailed for more than seven years for importing cannabis.

However, the article cited by Tiberius stated that the “only reason the Adams family had allowed the prosecution to succeed and had not resorted to bribery or intimidation to thwart it, was because the other brothers wanted to teach Tommy a lesson for getting involved in crimes they had not authorised”.

The article concluded: “Witnesses terrified into silence, dodgy jurors, bent lawyers, bent policemen and bent CPS clerks – all are part of the same cancer eating away at justice. A cure for the malady will not be easy to come by. Perhaps we should begin by acknowledging that the patient is sick.”

Tiberius disclosed that the Met interviewed the journalist who wrote the story after the murder of Solly Nahome, a money launderer credited as the “brains” behind the Adams’ criminal empire. The reporter stated one of her journalistic sources on the family was a corrupt police officer but did not disclose who it was.

Another case of corruption beyond the Met, identified by Tiberius, included intelligence of alleged foul play within HMRC, which is supposed to lead the UK’s fight against white-collar crime such as money laundering.

In 2000, according to Tiberius, a key police informant was secretly helping Scotland Yard with an investigation into the importation of £10m of heroin by a Turkish gang in north London.

The deal went wrong, the informant was tortured in a cellar and “an attempt was made to sever his fingers with a pair of garden shears”. His associate was also attacked and had “three fingers chopped off with a machete”.

The henchman Tiberius alleged had committed the assaults was the son of a named Met detective, who repeatedly tried to impede police inquiries into the case, according to Tiberius. He also had a corrupt relationship with a named detective sergeant then based in Marylebone police station who is suspected to have “organised cheque frauds”. Research conducted by The Independent suggests that none of the three men has ever been prosecuted.

The Turkish drug dealer was later convicted and told police he was an HMRC informant. He said he knew of “corrupt contacts within the police” and had a Cyprus-based customs officer as a handler who “took money off him”.

Alastair Morgan, whose brother Daniel was murdered in 1987 before he could expose links between Met officers and organised crime, told The Independent: “Despite all the protestations by police that things have changed since the ‘bad old days’, this doesn’t surprise me in the slightest.

“The police have no desire to tackle this. It would be too damaging to have it all aired in open court. The Met is a highly political organisation.”

Scotland Yard said: “[We] will not tolerate any behaviour by our officers and staff which could damage the trust placed in police by the public. We are determined to pursue corruption in all its forms and with all possible vigour. All such allegations and intelligence are taken extremely seriously.”

UK: 'Serpico' claims Scotland Yard elite ran drug cartel
Date: September 20 1998 - Source: Sunday Times (UK)
http://www.bilderberg.org/cia.htm#Serpico
'Serpico' claims Scotland Yard elite ran drug cartel by Nicholas Rufford, Home Affairs Editor

DRUG rackets worth millions of pounds were run from inside Britain's biggest police force, according to a former Scotland Yard detective who is to publish his allegations.

The officer, dubbed "Serpico" by friends after the New York police officer who was pilloried for exposing corruption, described sections of the drug squad and the regional crime squad at Scotland Yard as the "most professional criminal cartels in Britain". He is writing a book in which he alleges that officers stole drugs, paid phantom informants and fabricated evidence.

Duncan MacLaughlin, a detective for 18 years, is believed to be the first officer to talk openly about alleged corruption within the elite squads in which he worked.

His claims are likely to give renewed urgency to the efforts by Sir Paul Condon, the Metropolitan police commissioner, to stamp out criminal activity within the force. Condon has already launched a wide-ranging inquiry into police corruption, and has set up CIB3, a special unit of the Complaints Investigation Bureau, to investigate.

MacLaughlin, 38, who admits he was not "straighter than straight", spent five years in the drug squad and five years in the London-based regional crime squad, which drew the best detectives from forces across southern England to investigate serious crime.

He described the regional squad, which he left in 1994, as like Colditz, the second world war prison. "You put all the clever ones, all the brains, in one office, and you got the cleverest scams. There were no better criminals in the country . . . I was a member of the most professional criminal cartel that Britain has ever produced."

MacLaughlin said hundreds of thousands of pounds were siphoned from police funds through the creation of phantom informants. "If we got anonymous information that there was going to be a deal involving, say, 25 kilos of coke [cocaine], straightaway you would create an imaginary informant. Then a friend would come in and sign a bit of paper and maybe receive up to £40,000 reward money."

Another practice was to sell drugs which were seized on raids. "Drugs were recycled all the time. If you found 15 kilos of coke, you produce 12 kilos and 3 would be sold. A kilo of coke you get UKP30,000 for, so you have made £90,000."

The claims are some of the most detailed made against Scotland Yard. MacLaughlin resigned in July. He was facing a discipline charge - which he denies - for allegedly removing paperwork relating to a murder investigation.

MacLaughlin does not admit to being involved in any of the crimes he alleges, though he does admit to holidaying in the Caribbean while on police assignment to trace a drug baron's assets. He said he did not feel guilty because he was not spending taxpayers' money, but cash from a Home Office reward fund. "I was no angel, I would go back to the Caribbean just when it suited me. The Met police had no idea. It just showed how incompetent they were," he said.

Roy Clark, deputy assistant commissioner of Scotland Yard, said that some of MacLaughlin's claims were false and others "wildly exaggerated". He said it was a pity that MacLaughlin was "not prepared to come forward and, if there was any truth in his suggestions, share his information with the anti-corruption squad".

Another former senior officer in the complaints bureau described MacLaughlin as an oddball who would have been sacked had he not resigned.

MacLaughlin claims that he was rebuffed when he tried to give information to Ian Quinn, the bureau's director. A Scotland Yard source dismissed the claim and said MacLaughlin had made an allegation to the bureau about the private life of a senior officer for which there was "not an iota of evidence".

FEATURED COPS

This section, and it is huge, looks at cases, dirty cops and what the Police do not like you to see about themselves.

I will not bore you with their claims of unfairness on my part and the denials they continually issue to cover up their malpractice. They are at the moment enjoying mass coverage on TV programmes showing how wonderful they are, but some time ago we applied to a commercial TV station to present them with a show on ' corruption in the police force ' it was turned down. Firstly they gave the reason it was bad for business, then on the grounds it would sour relations. It also came about that the police would only take part if they could have a script and cases they were willing to discuss (we would be forbidden to ask anything they did not like or unexpectedly put to them of an embarrassing nature) We said no, as this would not get a proper response on air especially to cases they would prefer not to discuss. So they have declined in favour of the image they prefer to be fed to the public, the propaganda and the lie they perpetuate like the Judiciary and Lawyers. It appears that ' unaccountability ' wins.

There is so much material to cover and volumes already compiled that we will first begin with recent news items such as the 742 Police Officers arrested and another item by the Liberal Democrats announcing that 1,063 police officers have criminal records and are serving officers in the police. This might shock, but it is a fact the tip of the iceberg and not a full picture of police corruption --- it goes much deeper than those figures and encompasses all ranks -- as you will see if you go to ' The Bent Cops' list, which is just a snapshot of what we have in our files.

' BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION -- THE DAWNING OF BENT COPS '

We begin with THE BRIBERY SCANDAL OF 1877. Although the Police Force was in it's formative years and malpractice was a regular event, the conviction of four senior officers for taking bribes caused the public to doubt the integrity of a force that should have been law abiding. Paymaster and tycoon, a man called Benson, paid the officers to inform him of raids and if necessary, make evidence disappear.

Benson was an ingenious swindler. He teamed up with 'racing swindler ' William Kurr and together they issued ' Le-Sport ' which included many references to the wealthy Mr. Yonge who lived in a mansion on Shanklin, the Isle-of-Wight. Many bookies suspected Yonge and the unusual large winnings at the race course. Benson knew Yonge personally. Yonge was a trickster and he chose victim Comtesse de Goncourt for a swindle acting as the betting agent using an alias. Madame de Goncourt invested £10,000, and that was the last she saw of it. William Kurr enlisted Chief Inspector John Meiklejohn and paid him not to investigate or derail investigations into previous swindles. Second police officer Chief Inspector Nathaniel Druscovich was in financial difficulties, Meiklejohn introduced him to Kurr, who now had two cops on his payroll, this was soon followed by a third cop - Chief Inspector William Palmer. Meiklejohn warned Benson and Kurr that nosey cop Chief Inspector Clarke was getting ready to pounce. Yonge entered the plan, and got Clarke to visit him on the Isle - of - Wight. He told Clarke he had information. This turned later and Yonge said he'd paid £50 to Clarke. Clarke was trapped, he'd been to Yonge's several times on invites - they were both brother freemasons. A villain, Walters also said he had bribed Clarke and had a letter proving it. All four cops ended up on trial along with Benson and William Kurr (plus a lawyer). Wealthy businessman and Freemason Yonge escaped, he was too powerful to bring down.

DETECTIVE JOHN MEIKLEJOHN, CHIEF INSPECTOR NATHANIEL DRUSCOVICH, CHIEF INSPECTOR WILLIAM PALMER and CHIEF INSPECTOR CLARKE were committed for trial.



From this beginning, the police were never able to shake off corruption, its smell never escaped the corridors of power even though some introduced 'sweeping' and 'special teams' to eradicate it --- they were not successful, and never have been. All such investigations have been 'cosmetic' and ' a publicity stunt' in order to allay public fears. Its success lies in honesty and accountability, and that cannot be achieved even now.



'Profumo and The Police Frame-up of Stephen Ward'

THE FOUR COPS WHO CONCOCTED AND FABRICATED EVIDENCE to convict Stephen Ward were only just a small part of the conspiracy that emerged with the downfall of the government and Minister John Profumo. There was a Judicial and Government cover-up with a trail made deliberately confusing that led all the way to the Lord Chief Justice whose intervention made sure that Stephen Ward was found guilty -- he had to be sacrificed for the sake of John Profumo the then Secretary of State for War in the Macmillan Government in the 1960's -- when the State decided to lie, cheat and deceive, using its powers to put an innocent citizen in prison for the sake of minimising a scandal and what they considered; the greater good! Of the four police officers? one died, one retired and went into hiding in Australia and simply vanished? The two Junior ranks, Detective Sergeants, now immune --- waited 25 years before admitting that Ward had been set-up by the Law and an adversary that he could not escape --- the British Legal system did everything it could to make certain that Ward was convicted; and later information uncovered showed that Lord Justice Parker played a major part in carrying out the miscarriage of justice. One must consider beyond any doubt, that the four man team of cops were not acting alone to frame Stephen Ward, that conclusion or suggestion would be preposterous to say the least, they were acting under orders from their bosses throughout. At the helm of the conspiracy was Home Secretary Henry Brooke, and he had become anxious and annoyed with Roger Hollis of MI5 who said a prosecution against Ward under the Official Secrets Act would not succeed. Brooke was absolutely determined to get Stephen Ward by whatever means, fair or foul, and the latter was chosen. So he went to The Metropolitan Police, and they were up for it. An investigation began immediately into Stephen Ward -- with instructions to 'find something and everything useful no matter how trivial' The CID were employed headed by CHIEF INSPECTOR SAMUEL HERBERT and DETECTIVE SERGEANT JOHN BURROWS, who chose DETECTIVE SERGEANT ARTHUR EUSTACE and DETECTIVE SERGEANT MICHAEL GLASSE who were considered as 'The Hunters' -- this special team of four were assembled and briefed by COMMANDER FRED C. PENNINGTON. DETECTIVE SUPERINTENDENT JAMES AXON was in charge of the 'field-work' and made the prolonged search for any evidence that would tilt the scales towards Ward. Burrows and Eustace said (25yrs later), the case and investigation was not normal police practice as one usually investigated the circumstances after a crime had been committed, but this one was to 'invent a crime and find things to support it' Apart from this, everything found had to be logged and the Prime Minister had to be kept informed and receive copies of all the evidence and reports-- ' A closed copy for his eyes only' They realised they were being employed to go on 'a fishing expedition' to justify an expected catalogue of charges ---'Go and find one that will stick in a court of law' was the order from the Met Chief.

Things got very difficult when they came up with virtually nothing -- the decision was then made to lean on friends and acquaintances' of Ward, -- and have them testify to false statements and fabricated evidence -- this order was leading the police into dangerous territory; Ward still had a few powerful friends he could call upon for support, and any questions in The House Of Commons would not be welcome by the Prime Minister.

The police continued to turn his friends by coercion and threats until all the selected witnesses told lies and anyone supporting him was suppressed. The eventual 'fit-up' trial was at the Old Bailey in Court No 1. on July the 22nd 1963. Even at the Court of Criminal Appeal, Mr. Justice Marshall failed to conceal his hate for Ward for bringing the scandal down on England. He remained bias and belied anything said favourable of Ward by his defence Lawyer --- his brief was to silence Ward and put him in jail. The tragedy here is that the police and judiciary succeeded and were about to impose a sentence of up to 14 years when Ward took an overdose and died in hospital.

This is the story of Christine Keeler, Many Rice-Davies, a spy and sex scandal that involved a prominent Minister



' THE DRUG SQUAD/OBSCENE PUBLICATION SQUAD TRIALS '

THE 1960's and an emerging pattern of corruption in the police.

1963 saw the sensational trial of the corrupt and vicious career of Detective Sergeant Harry Challenor. The papers centred on the madness he showed before going on trial and this helped to cloud many truths of certain squads. The convenience of this state helped other bent cops and the public were led to believe that he was just ' one rotten apple.'

DETECTIVE SGT CHALLENOR was perceived as a paranoid schizophrenic, and termed as ' a bullying and treacherous policeman' (as they would have us believe?). But there were undeniable suspicions the top brass used smear campaigns to full use, in order to throw off and deflect suspicion on themselves and other police officers. It was obviously better to do this than allow the public to believe there may be widespread corruption in the force -- but this would have been so if the public had been aware of three other officers on trial with him were being sent to jail for conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. The Press were actively if not covertly, encouraged to concentrate their stories on Challenor -- and unfortunately -- they did, and the three other convicted officers quietly left the court for a journey to prison by the back-door so-to-speak. Amid the furore of ' a crazy cop' little was said or printed about the police manipulating and twisting evidence to get convictions -- using criminal records on other people, who were particularly vulnerable, to beef up a thin case when they were quite aware they lacked real evidence.

1969 saw enquiries into the Lancashire Drugs Squad and six detectives were committed for trial.

THREE ENQUIRIES were going at once.

Two Senior Officers were arrested - Commander Wallace Virgo and Commander Kenneth Drury.

1973 saw Deputy Assistant Commissioner Gilbert Kelland whose inquiry led to 20 officers being dismissed.

After appointing Detective Chief Superintendent Bill Moody, Jimmy Humphreys a major pornographer was arrested. 40 officers were arrested after Humphreys Diary was found.

1976 - After police officers from the Obscene Publications Squad were seen to be too friendly with ' the dirty books brigade ' 15 police officers of Drugs and Pornography went to trial.



THE 1970's were a playground for unaccountable cops and cops that turned a blind eye to what other cops did in the 'misconduct' arena. One such account leads us to revealing what happened at a Police Station near Earls Court in Kensington -- The lair of The Met Police: Cops had nabbed a young motorist, a Mr Richardson who they accused of being a 'banned driver caught driving' -- it really didn't happen like that, he was spotted with a vehicle but not actually driving it. What followed won't shock those who know how the police behave when they are in the confines of a police station. He was detained in a cell at South Kensington, and three police officers; one of Senior rank hit him across the face demanding that he confess to driving while disqualified. He was bullied and threatened by these cops. He was convicted at West London Magistrates, but in those days it was quite easy for the cops to lie their way to a result......it was their word against his, and they had the magistrates on their side!



' The Noel Fellowes Miscarriage of Justice Case '

LANCASHIRE POLICE -- Noel Fellowes had been a Policeman, and it was his colleagues in the Lancashire Police that arrested him for a crime that he did not commit (in 1970). Ludovic Kennedy in 1986 was pioneering cases in the TV domain in 'Rough Justice' looking into Miscarriages of Justice involving people wrongly convicted on tainted or fabricated evidence. He opened a new file on this case, 'the murder of debt collector Harold Parkinson in Overton, near Morecombe' What amazed Ludovic was the behaviour of the Lancashire Police, especially the CID under the direction of Detective Chief Superintendent Mournsey who relentlessly went after an ex-cop for the murder on the flimsiest of evidence. The CID cops 'persuaded' witnesses to testify that Fellowes had a grudge against Parkinson despite failing to get a confession in an 'all-night' long interrogation. Noel Fellowes was a taxi driver now, and he'd never met the deceased. Ludovic said that it was evident that the cops had suppressed evidence pointing to other likely suspects. Fellowes served four years of a seven year sentence, and nine years after being convicted, Appeal Court Judge, Lord Chief Justice, was very critical of the Lancashire Police.................... saying that their conduct left a lot to be desired in a situation of 'a misbehaviour of errors' 'misconclusions' and 'misfortunes' which resulted in the injustice and conviction of an innocent man. Interestingly, Noel remarked that in the interviews the CID treated him like a buddy obviously to gain his confidence (and confession), but when they failed and he was charged, there was hostility towards him, it had all changed, 'I was treated like a dog, thrown into the cell and my food bowl was on the floor'



'1977 and the sacking of the Masonic Cop'

Two books were published concerning the connection of police to Masonic Lodges....but much of this was denied by the Force.....however, one cop, Lancashire Chief Constable STANLEY PARR was dismissed from his position after it was agreed that he had interfered in cases involving Masonic Friends in the Brotherhood.



' OPERATION COUNTRYMAN --- THE FAILED ATTEMPT '

We now come forward to OPERATION COUNTRYMAN of 1971 to 1977. This was the biggest investigation into police corruption ever mounted, It was flawed from the start, and was headed by different Investigators. They found police uncooperative, and police officers being on leave when they were due to be interviewed. Some were being tipped off and others left. Well over 100 police were in the frame, but the Government pulled the funding and it collapsed before a conclusion could be reached.

We can reveal that the inquiry collapsed due to pressure by the Police Federation who told the government that the investigation was damaging morale in the police force and that recruiting would be damaged if the inquiry continued......several weeks later after that meeting with a Minister, the investigation funding was pulled!

During the four years Sir Robert Mark held the position of Police commissioner, 478 police officers left following, or in anticipation of criminal proceedings.

The level of corruption was unprecedented and police were covering police, fabricating documents and losing files as fast as they could. They thought themselves untouchable and perceived this as a right, telling the government if they went down so would the present government too. Moves were made to appease the Federation and stem the tide of leaving cops...... the dark side of policing was being exposed and the cops that saw themselves as good guys were being compromised and leaned on......only a few were ever prosecuted, and this was less than 20, the others walked away or were transferred...... the police wanted this affair forgotten!

Other forces around the country were watching the 'Met Thing' with interest wondering if some of this would lead to them, they sought reassurances from the Home Office that should any Met officer under investigation point to them that it would be suppressed. This was granted and Operation Countryman hit the dust with hardly a notice from the ill-informed public of the time......this was a successful operation by the Government who were determined to see that the police were not harmed by crooks within.

THE ROTTEN ORCHARD - a book by criminal John Mc Vicar was about to see the light of day. It was written in conjunction with Laurie Cork, an ex-flying Squad member. McVicar wanted to tape record his memoirs involving bent cops and Cork was helping substantiate incidents. Things fell apart between them when Cork found out McVicar had been recording with a second tape recorder strapped to his ankle. Cork would cease the accounts of police misconduct on the main tape recorder when it became too personal, and that's when McVicar turned on the secret tape recorder. Cork obtained an injunction on the publishing of the book when he saw extracts published in the Daily Express. The book was never published?

One would have thought these events should have changed police actions, and that they had learnt from them. But no,, they got better at it, and it was not just the City of London Police, Manchester Police, the West Midlands Crime Squad would be the next big story in Police Corruption. The disease was spreading throughout the whole police organisation. As one retired officer told me, and he wasn't clean either, ' if two or three officers are nicked in a sting, there are dozens of others who knew about it and turned a blind eye. This idea about one bent officer is ludicrous, the others get away with it because of a lack of evidence, and they know it.'



'The Holloway Incident -- Van Police beat up boys'

August 1983 -- Georges Road, Holloway, North London. This blew up into a full corruption incident, thanks to the tireless determination of The Mirror's Paul Foot to get justice. A Police SPG vehicle drew up alongside several boys --- between ten and twelve officers hiding their identification numbers jumped out and attacked the youths with fists, kicks and truncheons. No explanation was given for the assault, but luckily one boy ran and the public noticed he was splattered with blood and shouting for help. The police later said there had been a disturbance in the vicinity of the fairground that had come to Georges Road. But the police were too late to suppress interest in the matter and The Islington Gazette and Hornsey Journal ran stories. The police were forced to identify the officers involved and Scotland Yard had the occupants of three vans patrolling the area in for questioning. Up to thirty police officers refused to give testimony or identify colleagues, even though they were required to do so in the Police Rules and Conduct. Two of the boys, brothers, Baltimore and Eric Ranger received a police payout of £4,000 each for injuries received. The case rolled on for months until finally, five policeman were charged and sentenced at court......what really matters here is the fact that 25 other cops were willing to hide the five cops who committed a crime.......luckily, the Met split these officers up and sent them to other stations.

NB: The five officers convicted are named in The Bent Cops list -- 137, 138, 139, 140, and 142.

Months later, Paul was summoned to Scotland Yard where it was revealed that the 30 officers pulled in to the Chief's Office were going to be charged, --- but in stormed the Police Federation who said if any were, they would defend them to the hilt no matter what and that it would be very costly to the Met...so no criminal action was taken! -- this is the story and account they didn't want you to know.



'Police Racism 1982 -- the rejection of Lord Scarman's Recommendations '

At this time, it was obvious that racism was rife in the force, and at the Police Training Centre in Hendon, regular racist taunts were frequent. Out on the London Streets and other Cities, racist cops were not being held to account for the way they behaved. The Home Secretary rejected Lord Scarman's recommendation that racist behaviour should be made an offence under the police discipline code. Evidence of Senior Officers talking to an American journalist, Bruce Porter who covered police issues in America, said the officers came out with vile and awful remark in his presence, two being ' The blacks we are told, breed like rabbits ' and ' It makes me cringe to see a black bloke going out with a white woman, it shouldn't be allowed ' But in spite of this, the Home Secretary and Police Federation saw nothing wrong in it, and stated that it didn't justify dismissal from the police force?



' Police Complaints of '82 -- 17,514 -- Only 46 Disciplinary Charges?'

A clear case of do you believe it or not, and most people did not despite the claims by the police who arrived at these figures themselves. This was at a time when complaints were going up by 5 percent each year, yet the Police Complaints Board recommended just 46 go to the Disciplinary Tribunal. The complaints covered a wide range of accusations --- unnecessary arrest, detention, wrongful imprisonment, harassment and incivility and the interrogation of juveniles plus other failures. Of the 46 cases, 15 officers were found guilty of serious allegations and wrongdoing, 11 were dismissed and four cases remained outstanding....the other 16? no-one knew.

THE MET POLICE HAD 8,617 COMPLAINTS LODGED AGAINST THEM -- 253 were substantiated and dispensations not to proceed were granted by The Police Complaints Board in 693 complaints. Of the 253, ---- 26 resulted in Disciplinary proceedings, ten officers were dismissed or required to resign after criminal charges had been brought against them, but before such proceedings were finished 8 more resigned while under investigation for criminal matters. Another 9 officers resigned before internal disciplinary cases were heard, 8 were dismissed, and 21 were required to resign on the outcome of their hearings, as with the above paragraph, some were not even explained or talked about.

CIVIL ACTIONS AGAINST THE MET POLICE --- These payouts only refer to actions brought against the Met Cops -- from 1973 to 1982 there were 639 cases of suing the police, but only 255 had reached the courts because of the delays in the judicial system. £193,781 was paid out, somewhat of a paltry sum compared to the USA.



' The 1982 Police Corruption inquiry -- The Bribes '

The Corruption involved officers taking bribes from undertakers for directing them to bereaved families. One London Officer was suspended and a second retired instead of facing a court. It was said there had been arrangements made at Coroner's Officers -- who are police constables, and they supervised 'coroner's removals' the transporting of bodies to the coroner's office in cases where a post-mortem examination is thought to be necessary. The motive was said to be not the small removal fee, but a much larger kick-back with the first undertaker with whom the cops had dealings with. The Home Secretary refused to hold a public inquiry into the scope of how deep this practice went, and due to the Countryman Case he was already trying to minimise the ructions caused as allegations against DETECTIVE SUPERINTENDENT ERNEST BRAMSGROVE who'd been suspended since 1981, and several junior officers remained ongoing. Investigators involved complained to the Home secretary that they were being prevented from doing their job just like those officers on the Operation Countryman case by being obstructed by other officers.

Another trial of two other officers revealed that one of the accused, DETECTIVE CHIEF INSPECTOR PHILIP CUTHBERT alleged, in a secretly taped conversation that corruption in the Met Police 'used to got to the top of the tree, right up to the A.C's (Assistant Commissioners). During the trials it was said officers had 'sold' bail , an alternative to being remanded in custody, to men accused of armed robbery on eight occasions, and provided 'watered down evidence' for four men. The going rate for this bail was £10,000 and £20,000 for weakening evidence. The bribery payments to the police had been made through the chief prosecution witness by the six men accused of armed robbery at the Williams and Glyns Bank. The two officers were jailed, and a list of twenty London cops who had been corrupt or dishonest were not revealed as a result of the jailing of two!



' Corrupt Detectives join crook to rob Pensioner'

SCOTLAND YARD ANTI-CORRUPTION SQUAD were called in to fond four cops, detectives with the Met Regional Crime Squad no less -- who with a known crook robbed an 84 year old man who lived alone. It was said in a report that the four detectives took £5,000 when they were searching the pensioner's home for stolen property - the pensioner was a collector and bought things from auctions. The crook who posed as a detective investigating thefts in the area picked on the old man and took £12,000. The Corruption Investigation Bureau CIB said four Met Detectives attached to the Regional Crime Squad were being held and questioned. At the same time they arrested the man 'who was not a police officer' and he was bailed. The Police in a statement said they were linking the man and police officers to one single enquiry saying the villain was working with bent cops who were given a percentage of the take.



' The Stephen Waldorf shooting Whitewash and £150,000 Compensation '

POLICE MARKSMEN SHOT A MAN MISTAKEN FOR SOMEONE ELSE -- Stephen Waldorf was that victim of a hail of police bullets that entered his vehicle like the scene out of 'Bonnie and Clyde' the shooting took place in heavy traffic on the 15th of January 1983 when police swooped on his mini car who they suspected had in it an escaped prisoner? 14 shots were fired into the car badly wounding Stephen Waldorf who was rushed to hospital in a critical condition. The man they were after was David Martin, and it was later said in court, that the officers made a 'horrifying mistake in assuming Stephen Waldorf was their man' In fact no-one on the police team were certain it was, but the order to shoot was given and that led to the trial of POLICE DETECTIVE CONSTABLE PETER FINCH and DETECTIVE JOHN JARDINE being charged with wounding and attempted murder, five charges were recorded, but these two men walked free in October. They used the defence of having to shoot in self-defence, but Waldorf had no gun, they then said if it had been Martin, he would have had a gun and used it, and that's who they thought they were dealing with? it was said in court Finch drew his weapon before making the identification (that was wrong) and an order to be ready was based on the 'assumption' the suspect was armed, which was the responsibility of POLICE SUPERINTENDENT NEE who briefed the men at Paddington Police Station. Sadly, the court accepted all this guff about 'what if' and 'assumptions' and 'in the interests of safety' thrown up by the defence and supported by the Police Federation who were angry that two of their members had been prosecuted and brought to trial. Much of the Police defence was covered by red tape, secrecy and Operational procedures not to be aired in public. Stephen Waldorf recovered after several months and was finally awarded £150,000, after which he quickly left this country for the safety of Europe.

NB. Stephen Waldorf was brutally handcuffed after being shot, pistol-whipped and dragged out of the car --- ..another cop named was POLICE OFFICER JOHN DEAN who was suspended, no charges were brought against him.

THE ABOVE CASE HAS SIMILARITIES TO THE MENDEZ SHOOTING AND THE COVER-UP THAT FOLLOWED.



' The Cherry Groce Shooting that led to the Brixton Riots '

THE BRIXTON RIOTS 1985 -- POLICE INSPECTOR DOUGLAS LOVELOCK CHARGED WITH UNLAWFUL SHOOTING

The Police were raiding an estate in South London, looking for the son (who they suspected of a crime) of Cherry Groce in 1985, they went in with an armed unit and in the incident they smashed down the door when she failed to open it and Police Officer Lovelock opened fire and shot Cherry Groce who was rushed to hospital. Her son wasn't found in the flat at the time, and Cherry Groce was paralysed and became wheelchair bound. This incident in which an innocent woman was shot triggered the riots that soon followed as the black people of Brixton became enraged. Inspector Lovelock was charged in 1986 with 'unlawful shooting' but got off. The Police later made a compensation payout to Mrs Groce. Now almost thirty years after this, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe the Commander of The Met has apologised for the incident in which an innocent woman was shot during a botched operation. He also apologised for the inexcusable fact that it has taken so long for this apology to be given......Mrs Groce died several years ago so she will never know.

We held onto this case in our files and on seeing the 2014 apology we decided it was time to include it.



' The Corruption Investigations of police in 1998 '

43 POLICE FORCES THROUGHOUT THE UK HAD OFFICERS FACING DISHONESTY CHARGES AND CORRUPTION - as stated in a 'TIMES SURVEY ' and the Home Secretary at the time - Jack Straw - said this alarming situation of crooked police posed a great risk to justice. Many of the charges concerned drugs, misuse of police information, perverting the course of justice and assaults. The survey revealed that it just didn't occur at constable level with a few sergeants, it also mentioned superintendents, chief inspectors and high ranking detectives. In the light of this they said a new unit was to be formed called CIB3, and that would be assigned to root out corruption. Ten years on -- and there has been no significant cases as a result of these findings -- and are we surprised? NO.



' The mystery surrounding the killing of Blair Peach by police '

IN 1979 TEACHER AND PROTESTOR BLAIR PEACH WAS KILLED BY POLICE UNLAWFULLY. No police officer was charged with his death and the whole affair has been kept a secret for thirty years. The Met Police say that the facts will be revealed soon, but we doubt that very much. Blair Peach was murdered in Southall at the hands of the SPECIAL PATROL GROUP ---( they were involved in the beating up of the Holloway boys and thirty officers refused to give information regarding corrupt officers). One man in charge -- Inspector Alan Murray was blamed for the circumstances in which several un-named officers clubbed the man to death. He claims to this day it was too confusing at the time and denies involvement. He admits people were assaulted and thrown down flights of stairs by his officers and regrets this. The DPP now CPS said no to prosecuting any officers at the time and covered the incident in a 'secrecy tag' and files have been held in secrecy until now - thirty years after the event.

APRIL 2010 - It has now been officially revealed that an unidentified police officer did kill Blair Peach despite the many denials, and that many police officers on that day and those involved lied about their accounts of what happened in order to cover-up the incident.



' The Guildford Four Case '

This case was notorious in that it resulted in a huge payout for the four who were jailed for a total of 15 years based upon lies and dishonesty of the police. Three detectives were sent to jail for conspiring to pervert the course of justice: CHIEF INSPECTOR THOMAS STYLE, POLICE SERGEANT JOHN DONALDSON and CONSTABLE VERNON ATTWELL. To say or pretend these officers acted alone is absurd, but that's what the police want you to believe.

Other Cops in this sordid case of police lies came out and they are DETECTIVE INSPECTOR TIMOTHY BLAKE, CHIEF SUPERINTENDENT WALLY SIMMONS, both mentioned for their brutality and bullying. ASSISTANT CHIEF CONSTABLE CHRISTOPHER ROWE was another notable who restricted access to justice in order to further his career.

One comment that should have prominence is ' Any chance of a civilised police was shattered when I walked into Addlestone Police Station in Surrey --- abuse by all officers from Sergeant to Constables were all keen to show how nasty and unpleasant they could be '

LORD DENNING said of this case - ' British Justice is in ruins, this is a very grave matter for all those who care about justice, there has been a serious miscarriage of justice which has resulted in wrongful imprisonment'

LORD CHIEF JUSTICE LORD LANE said ' The officers must have lied ' in 1989 --- it was also stated that it took the police three weeks to fabricate and concoct the lies in 1974, and half an hour in court fifteen years later to show them as lies and a conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

Only three cops were ever convicted, but there were many many more who acted and conspired in this scandal.



' The Cardiff 3 Case -- The Bullying Cops '

Three men, Stephen Miller, Tony Paris and Yusef Abdullahi spent four years in jail for a murder they did not commit --- The prosecution case at the Appeal Court collapsed, revealing the disgusting police tactics committed by The South Wales Police. False confessions were obtained under duress by these un-named and protected police officers -- they used oppressive methods that were not acceptable and in direct contrast to what was claimed by the Police Federation who conducted deflective press moves. Lord Justice Taylor remarked, 'It is not right nor acceptable that relentless questioning should continue when the interview has reached a stage where a person is reduced to crying ' He noted that thirteen hours of bullying conducted at Rumney and Central Police Station went on for five days. He was also amazed at the brazen and arrogant way officers did what they did while evidence tapes were recording. It gave rise to one coming to the conclusion that these officers thought they could do as they like and it would be given the nod and wink by any judge --Each member of this court was horrified at hearing the tape.' he said as he quashed the accused convictions.

Yusef said on being freed - 'I have a lot of hatred for the people who contributed to my jail sentence, and I have total disgust for The South Wales Police, we were used as scapegoats '

Tony Paris said on being freed -- ' I've got no gripes with the prison, all my hatred is reserved for the police, I hate what they did and I haven't finished with them yet '

Stephen Miller said on being freed -- 'The Police lied to me and they put me through hell '

Eight Cops went on trial -- and the case collapsed because 'a file went missing?' a file that was crucial to the Prosecution......yet as the case was declared over and the cops went free....the missing file suddenly appeared? and there were those who knew where it had been -- but remained silent. Three of the witnesses were found guilty of perjury -- they said the police fabricated the statements and had them sign them and again -- testify in court. These three 'unsuitable' witnesses received custodial sentences. Yet, the police went free because the prosecution were inept, and many say they bungled the case. Leading Barristers said that this case was one of incredible and unexplainable incidents that always seemed to have the police in the central role? There was an investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission...who amazingly let the South Wales Police investigate themselves? whereas it is usual practice to have an outside force involved....it turned out that the Senior Investigator was investigating a close colleague...his former boss? besides others he well knew.

THE IPPC IS NOW TO BE INVESTIGATED ITSELF BY THE PARLIAMENTARY SELECT COMMITTEE (2012)...along with a further inquiry into the handing of the case by The CPS.

What we have here is a corruption scandal involving bent cops, judiciary, and a miscarriage of justice.....that is still hiding the truth.....and no doubt they will do everything they can to avoid it being known?



' The Roy Garner File on Crooked Cops '

1993 -- THE MET COPS -- Cockney, Roy Garner, the jailed Gangster with a reputation -- vowed he'd expose corrupt police officers who took bribes from him during his 20 years in crime. He said the cops tipped him off about raids or traps so long as they received sizeable 'backhanders' in return for the service. He warned The Met at Scotland Yard that he was their ' ticking time bomb' and claimed it would rank as one of the biggest police corruption scandals of all time. Garner had been jailed in 1989 and was serving 16 years for drug smuggling. He went onto say he had 'tapes' stashed away that would reveal many cops on the take. Police said they are investigating the claims, but Garner said he will not release the names unless they promise him that bent cops he names, will be prosecuted. 'I paid them hundreds of thousands of pounds over the years' said Garner, who claimed his reluctance was because the Scotland Yard cop Detective Superintendent Tony Lundy was allowed to retire on medical grounds when Garner implicated the cop in being involved.



' Police and the Climbie Case '

Six Police Officers faced disciplinary proceedings for neglect of duty. The six worked in the Child Protection Unit at Brent and Haringey, London. The blame for mishandling the case mainly fell on the junior officers, and resulted in the senior officers able to comfortably sidestep issues.



' Police Assault, Collusion -- The John Wilson Case 1996 - 2002 '

It is always difficult to pick out the 'dirtiest case' when there is so many to choose from, but the ' Wilson Case' reveals one of their 'finest hours' --- Teenager John Wilson was in the wrong place at the wrong time -- in the vicinity of The Crown public House in Twickenham. He was 16 years old, and was about to be hit so hard by a cowardly police officer that it would change his life forever. John and two friends found themselves with football supporters who were being watched and under surveillance by Met Riot Cops (25 of them). John unwisely stopped to watch some of them attacking a car belonging to the MoD. His friends had gone, and he was about to until a cop rushed at him and all John saw was something crashing down upon him, His skull was fractured in two places and he had a broken nose. As a result he had epileptic fits and seizures. CCTV discovered at the National Gallery provided some answers, in that it showed a riot cop standing over his body....it also showed the cowardly cop running off. The Wilson family began inquiries in order to identify this cop, and Scotland Yard made every attempt to undermine their efforts. In 1999, in stepped Solicitor Samantha Bird, who began her defence of the police by attempting to remove the Wilson's Legal Aid -- and achieved it.....just before the case was to be heard! Solicitor Samantha Bird continued her disgraceful attempts to trash the Wilson's Case and the boy's reputation, and even came up with what can only be termed as 'intended perversion' saying her clients, the Met police, would pursue the boy for all costs; managing to mention 'thousands of pounds' just to persuade them not to continue. The Met made many attempts to derail the case with the help of Solicitor Samantha Bird, who yet again tried to have their legal aid removed in 2001 when it was restored after a successful application by Lawyer James Bell of Liberty, who'd fought the police in other cases. Failing that she asked the Court to strike out the case saying it was an incident of 'accidental collision' but Judge Morland did not accept this and refused her application by saying the following -- 'that the video evidence showed the cop attacking the boy, and there was no accidental about it' The Met lost, but decided on using a vast amount of public funds to appeal (more delay tactics). Twenty five Officers were logged as on duty in special tasks, but strangely! they could not identify the officer, despite interviewing them, 24 of his colleagues hid this individual (who has never been discovered), which is not that unusual for the Met.....it happened at The Holloway Boys Assault in 1983 when 25 other cops went silent...and we are nearly 20 years on showing that PACE and promises of accountability mean nothing. The MPA who stood on a banner of 'better policing and transparency' showed they had another agenda when they were brought into the case, contrary to all expectations, they immediately secured the reputation of the police and refused to hear of any 'misconduct' However, there is a sort of decent end to this, the Met did payout for the case before it came to the court, giving £500,000 plus costs, but they never apologised for how they had acted.....even Solicitor Samantha Bird walked away without a care so long as she got her fee from The Met police....that is a good example of British Justice as interpreted by the Police Organisation and Legal Profession...The Wilsons had to fight for 6 years!



THE SUSSEX POLICE:

' The James Ashley Case and Police ' - The Sussex Cops

The un-armed Mr. Ashley was killed by Police Constable Sherwood of the East Sussex Constabulary in Hastings. The Police Squad were on a drugs raid, but none were found. Pc. Sherwood got off all charges and three senior officers walked away too. Charges were dropped with the explanation ' There are wider corporate laws to consider ?'

ANOTHER PIECE OF POLICE HISTORY IN SUSSEX -- The Corruption Case of Chief Constable Charles Ridge -- This was named in some Brighton newspapers as 'The Brighton Police Corruption Case' and it involved The Chief Constable, Charles Ridge, and two CID Detectives. The year was 1957, and the facts revealed were charges of ' conspiracy to solicit and obtain rewards' They appeared before Brighton Magistrates and were later sent for trial in London at the Old Bailey. The case dragged for a considerable time and there were moves by the police lawyers to restrict certain evidence on the grounds of sensitivity and prejudicial to their client. The end result was chaotic as they were unable to get the Chief Constable, and had to settle for jailing the two Police Detectives Detective Sergeant Ernest Heath and Detective Inspector John Hammersley and a civilian. The Chief Constable was acquitted, but soon after - dismissed from the Force because the judge had said Brighton needed a new leader in the police that could set a good example. It was also said that the Met Cops had for some time known there was something unsavoury about the police in Brighton, and the arrests of the officers did not come as a surprise. Although Heath and Hammersley had not acted without the nod from Ridge, the prosecution found it difficult to get him as he'd not left a solid trail that would nail him. Subordinate cops were not enough against a Chief Constable, not in the 1950's.

THE STORY ' Brighton Cops Conspiracy' -- The Sussex Plague of Rotten Cops --- It was claimed that after the police officers appeared on trial at The Old Bailey on corruption charges -- that what followed was a better police force? To simply accept this premise and ideological thought is absurd, it only paved the way for better concealment of police crimes and wrongdoing in the Sussex Police Constabulary. Let us examine the trial and case -- They had now seen what was likely to bring them down and witnessed a Chief Constable's reputation swimming in the gutter with the rats and vermin (they often referred to as scum and villains). All the facts and evidence did not come out at the trial, police lawyers fought hard to prevent the worst bits and connections to other officers by interpreting the law, procedures and rules in their favour. Some evidence was 'withheld' and declared 'not in the public interest' or 'too sensitive to have aired -- and would be a threat to security and operations within the Sussex Police Force.' Only two of the Brighton CID team were concentrated on, the others were left in peace and given assurances that there would be no 'witch-hunt' to expose fellow officers. The official police line was 'a conspiracy involving two detectives and the Chief Constable' -- but such a conspiracy would certainly involve many more in order for it to operate over the years that it did. Although testimony pointed frequently at Charles Ridge, the Chief Constable -- clever legal fighting techniques got him acquitted in front of a favourable judge. Luckily because of the interest of the public, the force could not afford the 'disease' and they dismissed him. All three officers denied the offences when initially charged and arrested -- Detectives Heath and Hammersley showed contempt and a confidence that they could beat the charges. In the trial it was revealed that Former Cop Barnard was compromised by Hammersley who threatened to frame him if he ever spoke of their dealings. Evidence was being bought, sold and disposed of for cash! Trusting anyone in the CID became difficult for those being involved with Heath and Hammersley. Bribery, protection and crime was nothing to these cops -- it was all a 'nice little earner' Heath under interview said the Chief Constable was in the conspiracy when he was just a Detective Superintendent! -- which gives one a good indication on how long the 'filth -- were actually being filthy' In the trial it was announced that witnesses had been 'interfered with' on day 2 of the hearing. Many collections for 'protection bribes' were accompanied by uniformed cops who were not required to give evidence or be called as witnesses because the Prosecution thought them to be 'insignificant' to proceed with charges of aiding and abetting --- another angle on this was - 'doing their duty but ignorant of the fact and just following orders ' --- something often referred to as a 'get out of prison card' by those who lay the blame for their actions elsewhere? The trial was cleverly steered onto focusing the central players and any attempt to widen the net or its scope had already been decided by Scotland Yard with the Sussex Police and Brighton. Stolen goods were another source of cash for the detectives, but it could not be done in the Brighton area... Heath and Hammersley said that a 'local' incident would only bring complications -- and that would not be allowed. Waite, who was a dealer and fence was receiving a quantity of stolen stuff from London testified that he'd given cash to both officers. Hammersley tried to involve Superintendent Moody of Scotland Yard, but he was already getting nervous and suspicious of where it was all leading. Many officers connected with the two detectives claimed 'misplaced loyalty' had obscured their judgement --- Pc Frank Knight told the court he turned down an offer of cash from a superior officer in the CID. Another interesting element revealed was that Heath had eleven commendations! (yet another common factor when bent cops are caught)

' Sussex Officer is charged with manslaughter '

POLICE CONSTABLE CHRISTOPHER SHERWOOD was charged over the fatal shooting of a man in Hastings after a raid on a house -- this only happened due to public outrage. The incident sparked fury and led to the suspension of Police Chief Paul Whitehouse.

FOUR OTHER POLICE OFFICERS were charged with misconduct in public office relating to the shooting incident.

The Sussex Police were also involved in an incident when two Police Constables beat up a Michael Smith and were withdrawn from duty; again in Hastings.

MAN TO SUE SUSSEX POLICE after being acquitted of charges - Ralph Bishop spent a year in jail and fifty-one hours being questioned - which adds up to a lot of compensation due to police evidence launched against him at ' The Babes in the Wood Trial' It took a jury just two hours and ten minutes to find him not guilty at his trial. He now plans to sue The Sussex Police for wrongful Arrest and Malicious Prosecution. His lawyer accused the police of complete incompetence in the way they did the investigation.

Another case involving the Sussex Police came to light when they handcuffed and detained Gregory Nash over a £20 unpaid fine. He was taken by Chichester Police to Dover in a police vehicle and put in a cell until the fine was paid. The cost to taxpayers was huge. 'Wasting Police Time comes to mind, and they certainly did.

Another Sussex Police Incident involved a young man who was stopped 39 times in one year. One officer even asked him after they had pulled him over ' Are you wanted?'

162 complaints of assault were lodged against the Sussex police according to a report in July 2008.

SUSSEX - Worthing Police, topped the list of shame in respect of police misconduct in 2008, since the year 2005 they have increased with allegations of oppressive behaviour and failures in duty. The police attempted to justify this with the following comments ' we believe that a great deal of the increase is attributable to changes in the way we record complaints in Sussex -- this doesn't mean we received the highest number of complaints out of all the forces.'

2006 - 428 COMPLAINTS, 2007 - 774 COMPLAINTS and another rise in 2008.

SUSSEX POLICE came in for more criticism (which they seem to brush aside lightly these days) over the fact during police chases they killed people for a second time within a week. A pensioner was fatally wounded during a police chase in Copthorne, West Sussex. A man from Brighton died in Lancing whilst being pursued by the cops. Although these incidents have been reported to the IPCC do not expect much of a result or any prosecutions of officers --- it rarely happens.

' Sussex Cop fined £300 for Harassment '

POLICE CONSTABLE ALISTAIR EDGAR appeared before Worthing Magistrates accused of harassing Christopher and Sophie Fox by deliberately leaving his lawn mower running so that the noise would stress them out and cause them as much annoyance as possible at their Brighton home. The report in The Mirror said that the policeman may face a disciplinary hearing!

SUSSEX COPS AROUSE PUBLIC SUSPICION -- They had arrested around thirty protesters - EDO -- who were taken to Brighton Police Station. Subsequently to those arrests, four cases were thrown out on appeal, and others dropped without explanation....there were accusations of a 'fix-up' too. The District Judge who faced three defendants suddenly asked the police to show evidence regarding police radio logs -- at this stage the court went silent, and after a minute or so the CPS dropped all charges against these three remaining defendants who had been waiting almost a year to see what was going to happen to them. Questions posed by the three were what was it that the police didn't want revealed in that court?

SUSSEX POLICE TO BE SUED - Beauty Queen Linda Watson approached lawyers in a bid to sue the Sussex Police for £1million in damages following the botched investigation into the murder of her wealthy husband - when they accuse her of hiring a hitman in a malicious prosecution. After walking free from the Old Bailey, she vowed to sue police for all the trouble they had caused plus the distress.

The Sussex Constabulary

A recent look at the Sussex Police Authority handout --- newspaper goes way too far in promoting the force as being highly successful. Considering we have reported on the complaints issue in that they top the league, one can see that they ignore this completely and pretend that corruption does not exist within the force despite the many cases we have cited so far.

' Sussex Cop in Money-laundering case '

POLICEMAN DARREN GRAYSMARK is currently on trial concerning a matter of drugs and money laundering it was said on a recent news report. It appears that his money-laundering activities concern his drugs partner and at the moment the SUSSEX POLICE are remaining silent about this matter. It now follows that Graysmark appeared before Maidstone Crown Court, was found guilty and sentenced to 16 months in jail. It also says he had a police unblemished record for 23 years -- his boyfriend Darren Simpson was a manager on the council in Hove.

SUSSEX COPS IN ASSAULT COVER-UP --- Five cops including a Sergeant were moved to other duties after an assault on a man went wrong. The Police were not named and they refused to discuss the case to reporters, only that it appears to have been over a motoring incident. Since the incident there has been a 'close down of all information' and the CPS were unwilling to provide any further information.

' West Sussex Cops in assault attack '

TWO WEST SUSSEX POLICEMEN -- Constable Andrew Watson and Constable Iain Pearce were seen beating up a man who was a suspect thief -- the witness was a trainee police constable Darren Nagle, who had been with the force for eight months was shocked to see colleagues carrying out the assault. The trainee police officer was giving evidence at Haywards Heath Magistrates against colleagues who had assaulted the 17yr old suspect.

WEST SUSSEX COPS IN FREEBIES FROM MACDONALD'S

West Sussex cops have been told they will face disciplinary action over accepting free burgers from a MacDonald's restaurant. The Deputy Chief Constable Mark Jordan stated that it destroyed an officer's integrity and could possibly be seen by the public as a sort of bribe for any possible favours that may arise out of this situation. Apart from that he said it broke the force's disciplinary code that forbids accepting gratuities without the proper consent.

'Sussex Officers not present at shooting sue for compensation '

THE CASE OF FRENCH AND OTHERS v THE CHIEF CONSTABLE OF WEST SUSSEX 2006 --- shows a certain lack of decency in the so called 'bobby on patrol' --- Claimant Police Officers sued their Chief claiming they had suffered psychiatric injury resulting from criminal and disciplinary proceedings following the fatal shooting of a man by a police officer ---- yet none of those who were claiming were present at the actual scene or shooting?

30 SUSSEX COPS MOONLIGHT WITH SECOND JOBS -- Not enough cash for cops? so they go elsewhere to boost their incomes, Sussex cops say officers are expected to abstain from any activity which is likely to interfere, or give the impression of interfering with, the impartial discharge of their duties.......some of the comments from the public on forum groups are not best pleased.

SUSSEX COPS FIDDLE THE CRIME FIGURES YET AGAIN

More rubbish was doled out yet again via the Chichester News about falling crime rates in Sussex in their July to August free paper. As we once stated in RELATED TOPICS newspaper reporters are not exactly honest or accurate as said by Nick Davies in his damning investigation into the newspaper industry - in his book 'Flat Earth News' which The Chichester News ought to read sometime. Crime figures from a force that came out as the worst and most often complained about Constabulary (which can be seen on this page) have to be viewed as a lie or fiction created by them in the face of rising attacks and crime in East and West Sussex in general.

THREE COPS IN FATAL SHOOTING WALK FREE --- SUPERINTENDENT CHRIS BURTON, INSPECTOR KEVIN FRENCH and INSPECTOR CHRISTOPHER SIGGS of the Sussex Constabulary were originally suspended and charged with the manslaughter of James Ashley in St. Leonards, near Hastings. A fourth officer had already been suspended -- POLICE CONSTABLE CHRIS SHERWOOD. A whitewash was claimed as these officers walked away without any charge. Some sources say the investigation was hampered by senior legal chiefs and the Chief Constable, who remarkably left his post in a resignation.

' Sussex Police attack student demonstrators '

IN 2010 the students of Sussex University made it known they did not approve or condone Police Violence in the Sussex Police -- the report revealed that there were sixteen police vans present at the Demo, and the use of batons and police dogs were employed to create fear and suppress a peaceful protest. The Police arrested three students that day using the Public Order Act. (this info supplied by www.socialistworker.co.uk )

SUSSEX COPS ISSUE LIE TO GO IN AND TAKE JAMES ASHLEY -- Just before the shooting police made references and statements to the fact they went to Ashley's residence on the suspicion he stabbed a person, but it emerged later in the inquiry that ' there was no evidence to indicate that Mr.Ashley had carried out the stabbing referred to ' and this was said by the investigation officer Tony Williams who claimed he'd been aware of various references which either stated or implied this was so.

SUSSEX COPS AND SPEEDING CHARGES --- POLICE OFFICER DAVID MUDDLE of the East Brighton Area, and POLICE CONSTABLE ROBERT WATTS of Hove District, were stopped by a Police Motorcyclist in Sept 2010. They were reported to be in separate Patrol vehicles on the A27 and were not responding to any emergency. The results of this remain unanswered?

MAN TO SUE SUSSEX COPS after horrific swoop when Sussex Police in Chichester fully armed with automatic pistols mistook visitor martin Kelly to be an armed robber. Martin, a visitor from the West Midlands attending a christening was thrown to the ground after leaving a pub in Chichester and subsequently handcuffed. When it was eventually discovered they had made a mistake, they didn't even apologise said Martin who is going to sue for compensation.

' Assault Officer to be Sentenced '

SUSSEX POLICE OFFICER CARL CHIVERALL was found guilty of Common Assault when he appeared at Haywards Heath Magistrates Court. The Officer was on duty with the Sussex Roads Policing Unit at Polegate. He is due back in court at Crawley Magistrates in September to be sentenced.

ABUSE INSPECTOR IS REPORTED -- Sussex Cop DETECTIVE INSPECTOR KEVIN MOORE found himself in trouble when he flew into a rage and hurled abuse at a constable after he sent off four members of his team at a soccer match. The Detective Chairman of Eastbourne Town was reported for bringing the game into disrepute and using foul language and abuse.

SUSSEX COP IN FRAUD SCAM --- Hastings Police Officer Resigns! PETER YEATS, a former Neighbourhood Response Sergeant appeared before magistrates on charges of fraud involving £3,500...the case was sent to the Crown Court.

' Police pay damages to Football Manager after raid '

CHICHESTER POLICE (SUSSEX CONSTABULARY) paid £1,000 to Harry Redknapp the Portsmouth Football Manager after a dawn raid on his home. The Judge ruled the raid as unlawful and were ordered to pay £10,000 costs along with the settlement.

SUSSEX COPS INTERNAL 'COMPENSATION PAYOUT' COSTS £275,000 --- Policewoman Barbara Lynford sued the Sussex Police Force for damages after sexist colleagues forced her out. A tribunal lasting three years! could make the force pay an additional £300,000 it was stated. She was taunted by male colleagues at the Gatwick Terminal (The Firearms Unit) -- it was also said the officers 'routinely faked anti-terrorist reports' and took sick leave when they were well.

SUSSEX CELL DEATHS NEED INQUIRY -- Disciplinary action was taken against three employees of The Sussex Police in the 'Reynolds Incident' which has triggered the reaction of some MP's who called for an inquiry in 2010 citing two other deaths - Brighton 2005 and the Crawley incident in 2007.

THE UNDERHILL SUSPENSION CASE 2009 -- Sussex Cop Martyn Underhill hit the headlines in the Eastbourne Herald ' Eastbourne Detective suspended for inappropriate behaviour with colleague ' The case didn't get much coverage because it was suddenly classified as 'An Internal Matter' by the Sussex Constabulary. The Police at the time did say action was being taken against a Senior Officer. However, Detective Chief Inspector Underhill was suspended just months before retirement.....and that more or less let them off from revealing more about this incident referred to as 'sex with a colleague while on duty'......it now appears that Underhill left Eastbourne and moved to Dorset where he is now.....and we are informed that he has taken up a post with the Dorset Cops?

SUSSEX WOMAN COP TIPS OFF SUSPECT -- Woman Police Constable Grania Hale of Newbury is to appear before Maidstone Crown Court on Misconduct Charges. She was a member of the Sussex Police Haywards Heath Neighbourhood Response Team. She has been suspended and cannot enter East or West Sussex in her bail conditions. It is stated that she tipped off a suspect about a police raid.

' Shoplifting charge Detective commits suicide '

DETECTIVE CHIEF INSPECTOR JIM TORBET of the SUSSEX POLICE was found dead just hours before he was due to answer bail in connection with the theft of wine from a supermarket. Both he and colleague CHIEF INSPECTOR SHARON ROWE were to appear on the theft charges.

THE CPS did not pursue the case against Sharon Rowe on the grounds of 'it is not in the public interest' but documents and files from the investigation confirmed they had all the evidence needed to charge her and bring her before the court?

It is interesting to note that this case fizzled out, making the police very happy -- as no further disclosures were made and the truth was as usual; concealed and hidden from the public.

SUSSEX COP NOT TO BE CHARGED BY CPS OVER ASSAULT? -- POLICE CONSTABLE NICHOLAS DIMMER was charged initially with one count of Common Assault in 2010 (the assault of a female), but it was later dropped by the CPS -- it turns out that he was Deputy Chairman of The Sussex Police Federation!

22 COPS INVESTIGATED OVER COMPUTER MISUSE -- May 2011 -- The report tells us that one officer was sacked and five others resigned after being found to have used the computer database unlawfully. Further news said there had been accusations of officers falsely adjusting timesheets etc.

' Off-Duty Sussex Cop gets off causing death charge '

POLICE CONSTABLE STEWART CHALMERS of the Sussex Constabulary walked away free after an internal investigation threw out charges of causing death by careless driving, The cop killed Luke Bland when he lost control of his car. Strangely, and it is routine procedure, an outside force was not called in to investigate this matter, and the Sussex Police took it upon themselves to decide the outcome of this case?

More research on the above reveals that there was a question of 'illegal tyres' not raised in the court appearance, and that the majority of witness statements were those of police officers. This cop was driving a Lotus Exige Sports car, and he claimed to be doing 55mph on a 50 mph road? one couple described the sound as that of a speeding race car........despite all of this, it's not uncommon for this kind of case to have this outcome.

'MISFUELLING' OF COP CARS IN THE SUSSEX POLICE -- It emerged that around £20,000 of taxpayers money had been spent on repairing police cars that had been filled with the wrong fuel. It was stated that there had been 84 separate incidents in the Sussex region in three years rendering vehicles unusable.

' Sussex Cop of Six Years is jailed over Child Porn Charges '

ACTING POLICE SERGEANT PHILIP SAVIDGE appeared at Lewes Crown Court on 42 charges. It was heard that the Sussex Policeman had 54,323 images of child sex acts etc, that he stored and exchanged with other men on the Internet. It was stated that 1,681 images were prohibited and considered in the extreme catagory. The cop who was stationed at East Grinstead had been a policeman for six years and had achieved rank of Sergeant. In court he said ' It all got out of hand ' It was also revealed he helped out at a young boys club. He was jailed for a period of 27 months.

'THE STRANGE ACTIONS BY SUSSEX COPS --- The incident began in 1999 when Mr G.Madden made complaints about how he was harassed by his neighbour called Mabry who made threats and followed it with other mischief. Mr Madden made six calls to the police -- The police later claimed there were no calls to be found? Neighbour Mabry knocked Mr Madden to the ground, he dialled 999 and called the police out to attend the 'crime' The Police attend the scene -- third cop car arrives at the house. After a while a Sergeant and Constable visit Mr Madden, saying they would take a statement on the following Monday. However, before the aforesaid day, a constable arrives on Sunday? who then asks the victim Mr Madden to sign a statement declaring there had been an argument that had sparked off the altercation. Mr Madden declined to sign -- later that same day the Sergeant visits, and he becomes irritated at the man's stand and shows signs of anger at the man's refusal to go along with their su

POLICE INVOLVED IN RAKING UP THE COSTS OF MOTOR INSURANCE -- A report has shown that the police are making millions out of the motorist yet again. They are sell on the details of road accident motorists, contact a favourable garage who then pay them for putting the car and insured their way. It is said they demand a fee of £25 for every motor they supply, calling an administration fee?

' Resigned Ex-Chief says cops will go to jail --- highly unlikely '

ASSISTANT COMMISSIONER JOHN YATES who resigned over the ' phone hacking Scandal ' has publicly stated that cops who accepted cash bribes or demanded payment for info, would go to jail for corruption -- but we've heard that one before and it's got whiskers on it now. Hardly any cop will go to jail, the federation will see to it that they resign or disappear rather unexplained and avoid questions and indeed --- a trial of any sort, that has been the way of it for years, just look at this site and read about these things. they are a fact well documented since the police service began. As one cop once told us ' we look after our own ', and he admitted to conveniently walking away from a charge of having taken a gun from the evidence room when he was in service, and because he could name others at the station, they accepted a retirement plan would suit everyone.

And more to the point in his statement to the press he says ' IF the corruption cases, which are very small in number, ARE PROPERLY INVESTIGATED, I have no doubt' --- Well that's the core of this, IF being very dubious and doubtful, and PROPERLY which suggests that remains subjective and ambiguous relying on honesty and a desire to be thorough, and many recorded investigations have shown this not to be so.



' Police Secrecy uncovered over the retention of body parts '

FOR YEARS THE POLICE HAVE ACTED SECRETLY over their keeping of body parts of murder victims a report tells us, and the families were never told of this. AVON AND SOMERSET POLICE revealed they had allowed 110 burials of victims to be without body parts such as brains and hearts. WEST MERCIA COPS owned up to the fact 44 victims had been buried without organs. Angry reactions followed the news of this and one man in particular was furious that his relative Nigel Evans of Bristol was buried without his brain some eight years before. But it now appears the cops can hide behind certain conditions of the Human Tissue Act of 2006, and are not subject to the Act....which is another nail in the coffin of one law for them and one law for us,, and it couldn't be clearer.



' When the cops fit up an innocent man '

THE COPS IN QUESTION WERE - FORMER SUPERINTENDENT THOMAS PAGE, EX CHIEF INSPECTORS - GRAHAM MOUNCHER and RICHARD POWELL. OFFICERS - MICHAEL DANIELS, PAUL JENNINGS, PAUL STEPHEN, PETER GREENWOOD and JOHN SEAFORD who all stood in the dock charged with conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. Three innocent men were jailed for the murder of Lynnette White, and Jeffrey Gafoor admitted to the crime years later and the jailed men were released after the convictions were quashed.



' Cover-up by Senior Cops for witness supergrass '

THE POLICE CAME UNDER FIRE for covering up what they were doing for villain Karl Chapman who was in jail in return for his testimony. Trips out, brothel visits, drugs were all mentioned despite the fact that no officer or officers have have been prosecuted. The court heard there was a prolonged and persistent- pervasive conspiracy to pervert the course of justice by a number of West Yorkshire Police Officers. The Prisoner Chapman received gifts,, money and privileges for his co-operation. Chapman was facing 267 counts of robbery against frail and elderly victims. The force was also accused of failing to investigate serious allegations of violence against Chapman who had provided them with evidence against a criminal associate. The matter is now being looked into by the Police Complaints Commission. So what next? probably nothing.



' Cleveland Top Cops are arrested by Yorkshire force in criminal investigation '

THE CHIEF CONSTABLE OF CLEVELAND POLICE SEAN PRICE and DEPUTY CHIEF DEREK BONNARD were arrested and questioned by North Yorkshire Police Detectives. Besides the two policemen, a woman member of the Cleveland staff was arrested on suspicion of the same offences. It was stated that this criminal investigation -- misconduct in public office, fraud and abuse of position, along with corrupt practice ' has shocked the public and police in that iot is the first time two of the highest ranking cops have been the subject of a criminal case.



' Disgruntled Cop tells us of Cops in false arrests and more '

A SCOOP FOR US by our Private Investigator reveals that a bunch of Met Cops have been fixing arrest figures and fitting up people so that the figures will deter the Home Office and their Headquarters from looking too closely into manning figures. The Cop let fly at his colleagues and hit out at the Judiciary saying ' there's quite a few bent ones there' and says he knows of certain officials at the local courts who have helped this band of cops. He did not deny being one of them, and said that he was drawn into the game by others who said he couldn't stand on the outside looking in and would be moved. He asked colleagues how, and they said it could be arranged if necessary. The game he says, was to add crimes to sheets and notebooks on suspects they knew and did not like personally, which included innocent people who were a thorn in their side. These people were vulnerable and often easy to fit-up, especially if they had a car and moved around a lot or on the other hand, had few friends to support them. We just placed drugs in the car or on them without them even noticing which is easy when they are confused and we are coming down on them, any cop can do it so long as your colleagues are in on it. Cops in every country are doing this kind of thing to get convictions and the courts are helping us because they don't like drug dealing and suppliers. People nowadays are led to believe this kind of thing does not go on, but I can assure you it does -- he said. We will be following this story and come back to it after he provides us with some paperwork. Richard is staying on top of this one.



' Stranger than strange, but it could be true '

A claim has been made that the infamous Jack the Ripper was actually a cop, a police Chief Inspector Frederick Abberline of Scotland Yard. A new book on the Ripper by Mr Abad a handwriting expert, says he has compared handwriting of ripper notes in a diary and letters to those of the Police Inspector's own written notes and declares that it is not only similar but identical. Proving this is going to be difficult because would you believe it? the police have launched a legal battle to withhold the name and evidence held on file of the Ripper, which begs the question why?



' Sergeant and Constable charged with vicious assault '

POLICE SERGEANT PAUL JACKSON and POLICE CONSTABLE MICHAEL PRENDERGAST of the Manchester Police with grievous bodily harm after committing a vicious attack on a suspect at Bamfurlong Police Station, they both appeared before Liverpool Crown Court after the man lost his eye and suffered significant injuries as a result of the police brutality. Both officers were charged under section 18 of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.



' Police Inspector on Assault charges kills himself '

POLICE INSPECTOR ADRIAN ROWLSON, a shamed cop appeared before Northampton Crown Court where he admitted to causing Actual Bodily Harm to a fellow female officer. The assault took place in a 'swingers club' and Rowlson attacked the policewoman. He had been in the police for 17 years and faced a prison sentence besides being dismissed. He was found dead at home.



' Rochdale Police Officer in assault is forced to resign '

POLICE OFFICER ANTHONY LANG was told to resign by police chiefs after he appeared in court and was fined £800 and £350 costs. The station CCTV showed the aggressive cop kicking the legs of suspect Daniel Nutthall of Rochdale. The court found him guilty of common assault and they awarded Nutthall £100 compensation.



' Detective Sergeant is jailed for 3 years '

POLICE DETECTIVE SERGEANT JOHN CRAGG was jailed at Liverpool Crown Court for having an affair with a sex rape victim. The Officer who worked on the ' Rape Case Squad ' pleaded guilty to two charges of misconduct in public office. It was said in court that he abused the trust of the public and his behaviour within the police force caused two cases to collapse. It stated he had two affairs with women when he was stationed in Blackpool with the Specialist sex crimes squad. He frequently had sex with the women while investigating their cases it was said. The Chief Constable of Lancashire said ' Honesty and Integrity are two of the most important characteristics of a police officer, and John Cragg has failed to display those qualities.'



' West Midlands Cop on Child sex Charges '

ACTING DETECTIVE INSPECTOR GLEN BOULTON of the West Mildlands Police Force faced two charges of sexually abusing two young girls under the age of sixteen when he appeared before the Wolverhampton Magistrates Court. Boulton 45, had been 20 years in the police, the local police preferred not to disclose much and opted for saying he had been suspended.



' Child Porn offender tells court he was abused by Cop '

Emergency call operator Jason Cullen (Hodson) who appeared in court over child porn pictures on his pc, told the court that he had been sexually abused by a senior cop at Scotland Yard. He was appearing before Sutton Magistrates, where he pleaded guilty to possessing indecent images of young children.



' Cops blatant admission to having cops with convictions in the force '

At one time it would have been a sin for a member of the public to suggest a force had bent cops on their payroll, but these days they know it's true and don't really care what the public thinks of that. The Hampshire cops were quite willing to defend their keeping of cops with 42 previous convictions (see Hampshire cops) now, this year 2011, The Met Cops finally owned up to having 13 officers still in the force with serious convictions, A Detective Sergeant was caught in a sting to close in on a prostitute ring. A Police Constable was caught with class A drugs, but he only attended a misconduct hearing. Two Constables caught on drink drive were given fines, Nine other officers were up before the courts for assault and related charges, they still hold down jobs in the police. One spokesperson defended this by saying ' a cop having a criminal conviction does not preclude employment ' and it has been revealed that around the country's 42 constabularies that dozens from each are in that similar position, and they say they do not understand why the public view them with suspicion?



' COP WHO SPARKED BRIXTON RIOTS ACCUSES BENT COPS ON FORCE ' --- Police Marksman Inspector Douglas Lovelock accused bent colleagues in the Met Police of corruption. The riot was sparked when he wounded black woman Cherry Groce in 1985, which led to street battles and vehicles set on fire in the Brixton area of London. The Inspector who was from Orpington in Kent, was formerly based in THE KENT POLICE FORCE before transferring to the Met. Scotland Yard denied his claims --- but that is not unusual.



' Police bring UK riots on themselves '

POLICE CORRUPTION, GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION has been waved in the face of public criticism for a countless number of years, and many see nothing done, and the perpetrators sliding away absolutely free due to highly paid corrupt lawyers and CPS Officials able to use the system to their advantage. We have listed thousands of cops and lawyers plus government figures and this has not brought any change,, not yet anyway, but we shall keep listing them and eating away at these bodies until they eventually own up. The 'expenses scandal' did not go all the way due to the Government implementing certain inquiries that they could influence, and in turn, police inquiries do the exact same thing with their federation and IPPC which carefully considers the needs of the police not to suffer too much a blow as to injure moral. Unfortunately, the real demonstrators have been infiltrated by others intent on making this something else. Underneath this are the genuine protestors who want to have the police brought before the courts, which cannot now happen as the Government will heap praise on the Law Enforcement, and any complaints against the police will be shelved or disappear. It all actually started with one individual citizen being shot in rather suspect circumstances, as armed police were at the scene and voices in the community said the young man did not pose such a threat as he was outnumbered. It was also revealed that a first police announcement claimed the young man had pulled out a gun and shot at the officers, but this changed later and a change of story emerged saying that the young man did not fire the gun, which not surprisingly points to police lies and attempts to fabricate the event details, which is not uncommon in these incidents. With the help of the Police Federation, this kind of behaviour happens time and time again so that they can get their members some sort of story to rely on. This lying by police set off the riot, the looting was something else and the police have capitalised on it. At times like this they shove in new laws, because this an excellent time and opportunity to slip them through unhindered by the do-gooders, and the crowd are baying for blood and bring back the birch etc, The cops play this game every so often to take attention away from their corrupt practises.

NB. The Rodney King Assault by Cops sparked a riot that left Los Angeles burning for six days, and this was because a court found the four cops not guilty? despite a video and camera evidence that showed otherwise.



' Officers refuse to give evidence at civil hearing '

FOUR MET OFFICERS REFUSED TO GIVE EVIDENCE in case they incriminated themselves it is said. The four officers were accused of serious assault and brutality on a Tooting man.

The four officers in this arrest are - POLICE CONSTABLE JONES, POLICE CONSTABLE COWLEY, POLICE CONSTABLE DONOHUE and SERGEANT PAUL DAVIS. THE COURT AWARDED THE ASSAULTED MAN £60,000 IN COMPENSATION.



' Met Cops assault student and then charge him '

Fit-ups by police are not that uncommon as we have already mentioned time and time again. Student Alfie Meadows was caught up in a 2010 demo, but protested his innocence in saying he was not involved, and this is supported by family and friends. Alfie suffered great injury from a policeman's baton and underwent a three hour operation to save his life. It now appears that the Cops in collusion with the CPS are charging him with violent disorder along with 11 others which carries a maximum jail term of five years if found guilty. We have often said the CPS are corrupt and they have been investigated for corruption, and we have shown cases of bent lawyers in the CPS. The Police have never stopped being corrupt, and many of them still fit-up people as you can see through our many items and files.



' Met Police Director of Communications in Hacking Scandal '

POLICE PR ADVISOR DICK FEDORCIO was 'sent home on extended leave' by the force as the inquiry and investigation into illegal phone tapping caught him in the net. The report says he faces a charge of gross misconduct in public office and allegations over a £24,000 contract he gave to a phone hacking suspect? One wonders just how many others in the force will be found and charged? of that we shall probably never know, and knowing the police as we do here, it will be another carpet sweeping event.



' The Payouts '

WE BEGIN WITH 'PRISON PAYOUTS' a fact that has not been revealed much in the past, and only with the Freedom of Information Act has it now been exposed and runs at a staggering £40,000 a day, and this is being paid out by the taxpayer, not the authorities, and this applies to POLICE PAYOUTS.

The Ministry of Justice admitted to paying out £60million over four years of taxpayers cash to compensate claims by prisoners (and jail staff etc,) £1.25million is being paid out in damages every month. £215,000 was paid out over prisoners being locked up beyond their release date, and what was not disclosed was the huge legal bill by ' the compensation culture lawyers' who virtually waited outside the prison gates with leaflets. Prison staff helped themselves to £8.7million in 2010, this averaged out to about £10,000 each.

We now go onto the police payouts:

Three other policemen involved in holding Dean were not accused of excessive force like Detective Dougall, but they were criticised for not recognising what was happening.

WE HAVE OVER 200 MORE CASES YET TO DO, so we are taking a break as collating them takes a long time.

IN ONE YEAR ALONE THERE WERE 304 COMPENSATION CLAIMS AGAINST THE POLICE of the same nature with similar if not identical themes running through them. Only 24 of those cases failed, all 280 cases were successful in obtaining police payouts of varying amounts. It is quite obvious the payouts are ridiculously too low and do not really reflect the seriousness which American Juries show in similar claims. Despite evidence fabrication and assault very few officers were ever prosecuted as you have already seen in the token amount of cases we have already shown. We feel it very necessary you should see the circumstances of cases so that it doesn't just look at the cash awards, but the police conduct also presented at court and the things the police got up to and abuses they indulged in and still do to this day. We have bulging files still to go through so we shall return to this subject again.

NB: Not all cases go to court, some are never started, some are compromised by police interference, and some are settled out of court to prevent publicity...many victims are too scared to sue the police, and as you will notice the case can drag out more than six years before you see a penny of compensation due to delays by the police.

POLICE FORGING LETTERS AND DOCUMENTS -- We do this small varied example in support of Mr. Baxman who was a target of this by the Hampshire Police who wanted to belittle him and subvert the court's proper meaning.

' Bradford Policeman forges letter '

' Cop forged signature on form '

POLICE CONSTABLE STEVE HOLLIDAY, commended for bravery three times, forged the Chief Superintendent's signature on a form so that he could avoid a parking fine. His car was impounded so he took the form saying his car was on surveillance at the time it was booked and therefore a mistake had been made. A suspicious officer checked the form and rang the Superintendent to get confirmation and Holliday was arrested.

' Guinness Document altered by Police '

LORD SPENS contacted the Attorney General's Office and accused the police of altering a document and withholding evidence. He also accused the FSO of complicity after comparing the original documents.

' Forged letter by Policeman at FSO Office '

In an unrelated incident not linked to the above but involving it, Alex Carlisle QC said ' the new letter was forged in the name of a London Solicitor, David Freeman. It suggested his client might jump bail' Inquiries showed that the letters were in fact prepared by one or more police officers who were working as part of the FSO. Mr.Carlisle spotted the fake letter by accident and later said ' it is thoroughly disreputable and at the very least demotion should have occurred '

' Police Notes altered to get conviction '

' Forgery of Report costs Met Cops secret payout '

SUBSTANTIAL DAMAGES in an-out-of-court settlement were paid by The Met Police when it was revealed they had forged the station custody records of a 74yr-old detainee they had falsely arrested. Mr McKenzie had been arrested for being drunk and disorderly they alleged at a hospital where he allegedly interfered with them talking to a friend he was visiting. It was found that the document and signature was signed ' T.H.Mackenzie ' and the handwriting expert said it was a rather crude attempt to fabricate the man's signature at best. After comparing samples he said the defendant had not written the document or signature. The man sued the Police for unlawful arrest and wrongful imprisonment.

For those who doubt the police are capable of forging documents, the above is ample proof they actually do.



' EX-COP TELLS OF UNTOUCHABLES '

Former policeman J.R.Linsey of Cheltenham in Gloucester, was a policeman in a small Northern Police Constabulary, very dedicated and believed in his job, until he came across a kind of ' Pals Act' within the town. He soon realised that local magistrates, business people associated with the Police Watch Committee and friends of the Chief Constable were exempt from the provisions of the Road Traffic Law. ' My Sergeant told me not to upset them and only give them a caution if I had occasion to stop any of these untouchables '



' Judges fail to bend the law to suit Police Constable '

Try as they did, Lord Justice Bingham and Mr.Justice Hutchison tried to fit the law in favour of Police Constable Sneller when he wrongfully arrested suspect teenager Arthur Chapman who was later convicted at Camberwell Green Justices because of the incident. Police Constable Sneller was refused entry to Mr Chapman's flat, Pc Sneller 'thought' several suspect youths came into the building, but had not seen it. He with several other police officers were told they could not enter and they should go and get a warrant. Chapman had to push back Sneller who had his foot inside, and as a result the officers made their way in and Sneller used the law - ' that he could enter if he suspected an offence had been committed, and that the youth was guilty of an offence ' The Judges applauded the Pc's dedication and asked him if he had evidence that Chapman was one of the suspects? Sneller said no. They told the Constable he did have the authority to carry out his duty but only to the letter of the law, and in this case he hadn't and the conviction could not stand, and neither could the arrest. Mr. Chapman went on to sue the Police and Camberwell Justices.



' Immunity Card played by Cop backfires badly '

FORMER POLICE CHIEF NORMAN CHAPPLE thought he was covering-up his side and interests quite nicely when he refused to hand over documents to the defence in a hearing -- ' In the Public Interest ' he claimed. The evidence would have been necessary, and it denied the defendant proper justice. Lord Justice Butler-Sloss said at the Appeal -- ' Chapple had no legal right to claim the immunity at all at the hearing, there was no certificate issued by a Government Minister. During the case it was found that Police Constable Andrew Richardson had lied on a vital number of points, and this evidence could not be challenged or examined due to Chapple's action ' It was also revealed that Mr.Chapple, after his retirement, impersonated a serving police officer and used his warrant card, which should have been handed in on the day he retired.



' Tape Recording catches Police Abuse and Lies '

MALKJIT NATT had the clever forethought to protect himself when he was subjected to police racial abuse, and was arrested by POLICE CONSTABLE DARREN BRAY and POLICE CONSTABLE CRAIG GANDE and taken by patrol car to Plaistow Police Station. On the way he turned on the Recorder and asked why he had been arrested. One cop replied ' You're just a pain in the arse ' The other cop said ' Why don't you go and set fire to yourself or something ' Among other comments of which there were many these can be printed - ' Go home, you know, to India or Pakistan, or wherever you come from ' etc. On hearing the full tape in court, Judge Jackson decided to send the nine page transcript of the tape to the Director of Public Prosecutions -- who later said they were studying it fully before taking action. The Two Policeman admitted to ' abusive behaviour ' and were just fined one day's pay. The wrongful arrest of Mr.Natt at Manor Park, East London, was not dealt with?

' Secret Tape Recording showed the Police Evidence was a lie '

NIGEL WATTS attended a 'shareholders meeting at Sun Alliance' and put a difficult question regarding a £530,000 loan, to Chairman Sir Christopher Benson -- who refused to answer and would not be drawn as he was asked several times in front of the crowd. Suddenly, the police swooped and Mr.Watts was arrested for a breach of the peace? He was handcuffed and thrown into a van. It later transpired the same police officers (in order to show allegiance to Sir Christopher Benson ) fabricated notebook entries supposed to have been made at the scene of the arrest in order to justify the wrongful arrest. What the Police did not know was that just before he was grabbed by the officers, Mr.Watts who had brought a tape recorder to record the meeting, handed it to a friend nearby who kept on recording as the police approached Nigel. The tape was played in evidence in the High Court and quite clearly showed that Mr. Watts had remained calm throughout the arrest and gave no grounds for arresting him at all, and certainly not for a breach of the peace. The Judge said the notebook entries by the police were clearly untrue and that the officers had made up words there were never spoken by Mr. Watts, but deliberately entered into the court in order to justify a charge of disorderly conduct and breach of the peace. ' If this tape had not existed you might have got away with this' he told the police, ' your arrest was groundless with fabrication' Mr.Watts launched a damages suit, which the police said they would be contesting?

NB - A micro - cassette recorder is useful, small and easy to conceal, and we recommend you carry one if you are likely to be stopped by police, or in a motor vehicle. If you do go to a police station ask that the tape and recorder are sealed in a bag in the event of your arrest, and examine it before it is put away by signing across the seal so that it cannot be tampered with.



' Lying Cop Halts Trial '

The trial of Neil Fernandez was in its first day and seemed quite ordinary until a constable stepped into the witness box to give evidence.

Dew was based at Mansfield Police Station, and the offences happened in 2010 it was said. It was reported that he will probably be moved to The Derby Crown Court for the trial. Dew was originally from Melbourne in Australia before moving to the U.K.



' Head of Cop Intelligence in Corruption Probe '

POLICE CHIEF HEAD OF THE NCIS - National Criminal Intelligence Service TONY BLOCKLEY and a Detective Sergeant in the National Crime Squad have been suspended while ' A Major Corruption Inquiry is Underway ' bothe cops are from two separate forces - Derby and South Yorkshire.



' Man dies as Police shoot him with taser 3 times '

Up to Eight Police Officers in Barrow-in-Furness confronted Dale Burns and shot him three times with the notorious high voltage taser gun, which has resulted in his death. It has been reported that they were answering a 'home disturbance call-out' when they surrounded the man. The IPCC are said to be investigating, so it is very likely that all the cops involved will get off and a whitewash ensues.



' Another non-starter report of G20 cop to stand trial? '

G20 RIOT COP POLICE CONSTABLE SIMON HARWOOD is yet again in the news and reports say he is to face a charge of Manslaughter and appear before the Westminster Magistrates Court -- it also said he had been suspended. But we have already seen one 'Whitewash' in a first investigation that claimed he had no case to answer, so this one will be more of a farce and an indictment that the British Public are willing to let this kind of thing go on in the interests of believing the British Bobby has integrity and cannot do any wrong.



' Met Cops still up to dirty tricks and cover-ups says De Mendez Cop '

We didn't actually need a Detective Sergeant from the anti-terrorist Squad to tell us the cops were still engaged in cover-ups and deceit, the phone hacking saga is already revealing that, But it seems a cop on the squad that shot Mr De Mendez has turned whistleblower because of some religious dawning. It appears he is suing the Met Police and claiming that senior officers tried to cover-up vital evidence and that several anti-terrorist cops committed perjury. He also said the Police hierarchy replaced a chief inspector with another to give more favourable evidence in front of the inquest jury. None of this is new to our team here, we've interviewed 'turnabout cops' seeking vengeance on colleagues after covering up for them when all was okay and they still had a job -- they had no thoughts of ratting on other cops then, mainly because they were part of the bent cops league and enjoying the benefits of it. One can see from the Payout cases that the Met cops were getting away with assault and fabricating evidence, so to us nothing has changed except the wrapping that they now wear to trick and confuse the public by the creation of 'good cop TV programmes for propaganda' We doubt very much that this detective Sergeant will change anything or be allowed to?



' Kuttner and The Police Corruption Scandal '

PRIVATE EYE, SCOTLAND YARD'S CLUB SQUAD, THE GAMING BOARD and Nottinghamshire Constabulary all feature here as Journalist Jack Lundin exposed the £200million scandal. The story he was investigating centred around one corrupt policeman, the taking of car number registrations and the national Police Computer. The lurid and at times twisting tale involving higher stakes, cost Ladbrokes £200m when six casinos were closed down as a result of this story. Even its chairman Cyril Stein resigned. The cop was eventually traced, but no thanks to the police, and it turned out to be a Police Sergeant who was duly arrested and put on trial at Nottingham Crown Court. Shortly after, Jack Lundin was arrested and the Judiciary put him on trial for contempt because he would not reveal his source. Luckily, Jack survived that and was found not guilty. All the details were never revealed and the Attorney General's Office along with the police were delighted with the result.



' Criminal in Jail corrupts Cop and Prison Officer '

CRIMINAL ROBERT TALBOT was serving 12 years in jail, yet his power of influence meant that he could still reach out and keep things going, so he turned Prison Officer Ian Cooper into a trusted runabout who brought in mobile phones, and drugs hidden in large orange juice cartons. He then encouraged cop, MPS Police Constable Hayley Cloud to carry out vehicle checks on cars he could 'ring ' Policewoman Cloud was jailed for 2 years, and Prison Officer Cooper was in prison for five and a half years. This all took place at Wandsworth Prison, London.



' National Police Racism 2010 -- A new Website '

It seems as if police mistrust is growing as we now give a mention to David Blair and his new site, which can be found in LINKS at its web address. The site says ' A study and research into serious and disturbing concerns regarding disproportionate investigations against BME Officers/Staff by The Professional Standards Department falsifying evidence to remove BME officers from office or have them charged or convicted as a means to remove them. It says they have 18 reported cases, and the website vows to expose the culture of racism and corrupt practices in the West Yorkshire police. Good luck on that to you David.



Now back to another instalment of more Police Payout cases:



COURT ACTIONS AGAINST THE METROPOLITAN POLICE FOR COMPENSATION PAYOUTS HAS BEEN STEADILY GROWING SINCE 1995, WHEN THEY HAD 160 PAYOUT CLAIMS TO DEAL WITH on behalf of the Taxpayer? in just that year alone.

' £100,000 for man tricked by police '

Ramon Canale was fitted-up by the Met Police and jailed for 6 years as a result of fabricated evidence the court heard. He sued the Met Cops for malicious prosecution and false imprisonment after spending 20 months in prison before being freed on Appeal. The jury awarded him £100,000 for his ordeal; the month long hearing cost the taxpayer an estimated £300,000 -- No police Officer was ever charged or brought to trial.

' £45,000 Police Payout for detained woman solicitor '

' Certain Police Officers in the Chelmsford Force tried to destroy my reputation' said solicitor Hazel Jones as she settled for a £45,000 compensation payout from the Essex Police. Because she refused to give information about her client she was arrested and unlawfully detained by DETECTIVE CONSTABLE GRAHAM BOUTER who arrested at her offices on suspicion of handling stolen property -- an item 'stolen' by her client -- she was held in a cell for 4 hours. After the case she said she was disappointed that no officer involved had been disciplined despite having shown, at the High Court, the police should not have arrested her or gone as far as they did to break the laws of confidentiality afforded to members of the legal profession.

' £35,000 Police Payout for Mum '

Mother Christine Godsell sued the Greater Manchester Police after being assaulted by POLICE CONSTABLE BRIAN SPEAKMAN, a large Rugby playing man of 6ft 2ins. In order to justify their arrest of Christine and the assault, they made up a charge of her assaulting an officer, which was luckily dismissed by Manchester's Minshull Street Crown Court, after a long battle to get the truth out and compensation.

' Man who loses eye gets £130,000 Police Payout '

During an arrest, Mr.Amer Rafiq lost the sight in his right eye after being assaulted by excessive force done by the Greater Manchester Police. Surgeons battled to save his eye, but failed after a long attempt to save his vision. The Greater Manchester Police made an-out-of-court settlement of £130,000 in consideration of the unfortunate incident. No action will be taken against the officers involved, and the Chief Constable in his wisdom said: ' The greater good would be served by settling on amicable terms and without admission of liability ' Which of course one can see is we are saying we are innocent but we are willing to make this huge payout because we did no wrong' does this make sense? of course it doesn't, nobody pays out anything if they are truly innocent of any involvement, and it's time the police stopped this rubbish.

' Birmingham Cops Payout £81,000 for attack '

A jury's decision to award compensation of £81,000 to Michael Smith against two police officers branded violent racists by the County Court, met with the Judge's approval. Mr. Smith sustained fractures and aggressive injury at the hands of the officers. What also came to light and this is a standard tack by police, is to make up a charge of assaulting a police officer to justify their actions, and they did in this case. The jury dismissed it immediately. Wolverhampton Crown Court found Mr.Smith not guilty. The compensation awarded was for unlawful arrest, assault and malicious prosecution. It was also heard that at Birmingham Road Police Station one of the officers told Mr.Smith ' They could kill him and get away with it ' ---- sounds fanciful but there maybe truth in that somewhere. Things said in haste or jest are not always a joke or careless remark.

' Met Pay £62,500 over assault claim '

Two friends who were 'beaten-up' by Met Police Officers in a false arrest received damages for a brutal assault. Mr.Harrison received £27,500 and Ms.Bruno-Gilbert got £35,000. The two friends never thought being good citizens and reporting what they'd seen would end up with them being arrested and held, but that is what happened when they witnessed a man being excessively and violently assaulted by police officers in a lonely off-the-main road street. They immediately went in to report the incident at Stoke Newington Police Station and on doing so found themselves being attacked by officers there. They were set upon and assaulted. They even charged Mr.Harrison with assaulting a police officer (something they all do to justify their actions as you can see with 99 percent of the payout claims), but it was thrown out at Highbury Magistrates Court. At the Central London County Court police agreed to pay damages but denied the claim, and no officer was ever charged?

' North Yorkshire Police Pay £30,000 Damages '

Joseph Carr, his wife, and two children were arrested at gunpoint by Sheffield Police Officers when they burst into their home at 4 am. Joseph, an Antiques Dealer said they were arrested on false allegations. The Family sued the police for unlawful detention and false arrest. It later transpired that a Mr.Dawson was later questioned about the allegations of saying that he'd been threatened with a gun at a road incident, which he accepted was false, he was not prosecuted? Sheffield County Court awarded the family damages of £30,000 in compensation.

' Payout from Met Police of £80,000 for Assault '

John Racz got £20,000 for false arrest and false imprisonment. It was heard in court how police officers kicked and punched the men, and then filed false charges of assault on an officer against all three men -- but Marylebone Magistrates threw out the charges vindicating all three. At the Central London County Court, Judge Clive Callman read out the settlement payouts to each of the plaintiffs. The Met Police did not apologise of admit liability, nor was any officer held accountable....so nothing new there eh?

' Family get £26,000 over raid by cops '

POLICE OF THE HUMBERSIDE FORCE raided the home of Barry McGill in a 3 am swoop claiming they were looking for a shotgun? and acting on a complaint. Barry suffered most in the assault, losing several teeth and having to go to hospital for treatment. His father, Charles, tried to help but was also assaulted as a matter of course. Brother Peter was also treated at hospital for extensive bruising and lacerations. All three, half naked, were thrown into a police van. To add insult to injury, the Humberside cops did the usual and invented charges of assaulting an officer against all three to beef up the pot and support their actions. A crown Court Judge later dismissed all charges against them and suggested they take out a civil claim against the police. The family took the case to the County court where they sued the police for assault and battery, wrongful arrest and false imprisonment. Barry said after the trial ' We were all badly beaten by these cops and it took years to bring them before the court. The legal fees were massive compared to our tiny award of £26,000, the case cost around £1million over several days, and the barrister got £500,000 on the legal aid. The Humberside Police offered no apology, no police were ever charged, and they denied liability?

' Met Cops play Night Game in Stop/Check Car Situation '

It has been revealed that Met cops in order not to get bored? have been stopping vehicles in a ' Stop and Check' motor vehicle operation for their amusement, which is far from what the public expects or needs. Mr Sandy Pratt told how he was travelling through the city in a taxi that was pulled up in a road check, the taxi driver turned to him and said it had been three times that month.
