British Corruption :New police corruption alleged in secret report

Friday 30 March 2012

Andy DaviesHome Affairs Correspondent

Exclusive: Corrupt police officers are 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.

Mark #Duggan : Murdered By Corrupt MET Cops NOW What Are They Trying To Hide ?

The shooting of Mark Duggan must be investigated openly

The IPCC says sensitive evidence of police decision-making may prevent an open hearing. What are the police trying to hide?

The news that the inquest into the shooting of Mark Duggan has been further delayed, from September 2012 to January 2013, comes as no great surprise to those of us who have been through these types of investigations. Delays became par for the course in the inquests into the deaths of Cynthia Jarrett and Joy Gardner. It took four years for Roger Sylvester, another Tottenham resident whose life ended in police custody, to be declared "unlawfully killed", a verdict that was quashed a year later. And the inquest into the 2005 shooting of Azelle Rodney by Metropolitan police officers is still to be heard.

What was surprising in this case, shocking even, was the revelation from the Independent Police Complaints Commission that, in investigating the shooting, it has unearthed such sensitive material over police decision-making that it is unable to reveal it, even to the inquest coroner. So there is now a real possibility that an open inquest may not be held at all. Instead there may have to be an inquiry, before a judge, that would allow for closed sessions in which these "sensitive details" are kept secret.

As a former member of the IPCC's community reference group, which had limited oversight of the investigation – and before that an independent adviser to the police gun crime unit Operation Trident – I have a working knowledge of police operational procedures and cannot think of any reason why their decision-making processes should not be held up to public scrutiny. Of course there are the few exceptions where national security may genuinely be at stake, but Duggan's death, regardless of the aftermath, isn't on a par with them. I know of no case other than that of David Kelly, the United Nations weapons inspector who committed suicide in 2003, in which "sensitive information" has been used to prevent an inquest in which all evidence can be interrogated in full public glare. What can be so sensitive in Duggan's case?

Given the rioting that started in Tottenham and quickly spread across the country following his death, the police and the IPCC should be doing their utmost to ensure that all relevant information on this planned operation would be held up for public scrutiny. However, if the IPCC has its way we will be left with many unanswered questions – questions to which Duggan's children, his parents and loved ones deserve answers.

The victims of the rioting deserve answers too. Otherwise, how can we ensure that this will never happen again?

The police and IPCC have already been forced to acknowledge that they failed Tottenham. On 6 August last year I led a demonstration to the police station as we wanted to know why Duggan's parents had not been informed of the circumstances of his death. Last month the Metropolitan police and the IPCC, quite rightly, publicly apologised to his parents. Had they treated the parents with the dignity and respect from the start we would never have gone to the police station. Had the IPCC not misled the media about an apparent shootout, we wouldn't have gone there angry.

As a result the IPCC's credibility in Tottenham is absolutely blown, which is in itself almost a criminal act because we needed to believe in this organisation. We needed to believe that a robust and transparent investigation into this tragedy would take place and that the lessons would be learned. But it's difficult, if not impossible, to have faith when the facts are kept secret, behind closed doors.

One of the things that the IPCC pledged to learn from last August was the dangers of what can happen when there is an information vacuum. The answer is that it's quickly filled. In August 2011 the word on the streets was that "they executed Mark". Seven months later the word is that the police had control of the gun or worse. If true, then the police are more than culpable in Duggan's killing: in the parlance of the modern judicial system they are guilty of joint enterprise. Is that what they are trying to hide from the world? We need an open inquest so we can learn the truth.

Mark #Duggan : #MET Corruption #IPCC Cover Up - Mark Duggan Was Not Killed He Was Unarmed And MURDERED In Cold Blood !

Mark Duggan death: IPCC says hands are tied over release of evidence

Police watchdog investigating death of Duggan, whose shooting sparked last year's riots, says law prevents it revealing evidence

The police watchdog investigating the death of Mark Duggan has called for the law to be changed after admitting that its "hands are tied" by legislation that means that a public coroner's inquest into the killing may never be held.

The deputy chair of the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), Deborah Glass, put out a statement on Thursday morning saying the organisation was "extremely frustrated" by the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000, which she says has stopped her organisation from revealing information unearthed during its investigation into Duggan's death.

The information is believed to centre around intercept evidence but the IPCC said that even giving details of what the issue might be would itself be a breach of the law.

The statement follows the revelation earlier this week that the coroner's inquest into the death has been delayed and may never be held, and that the IPCC's own investigation into the killing had also been delayed and its findings may not be available until the autumn.
Duggan was killed in August 2011 after being shot by a Metropolitan police officer in Tottenham, north London. The subsequent protest over his death sparked riots in the capital, which rapidly spread to the rest of England.

After Duggan's death, the IPCC said he had shot at police marksmen before they returned fire but it soon retracted its statement, saying it was untrue.

The IPCC's statement came as the aunt of Mark Duggan, Carole Duggan, said on Radio 4's Today programme that the family knew little more than the public as to what had led to his killing since the IPCC opened its investigation last year.

"We're still as in the dark now as we were in the beginning," she said, adding the family deserved an inquest so they could learn the truth about what happened on the evening of Duggan's death.

"We as a family believe that Mark was executed on the streets of London by the Metropolitan police … all the information is being withheld from us."

"I know that the IPCC have got a job to do but we see the IPCC as an obstacle in the way of getting information from the Metropolitan police," she said.

In her IPCC statement, Glass said: "The IPCC believes that it is essential for families to play a full part in any process which establishes how and in what circumstances their family member died.

"Our principal statutory duty is to secure and maintain confidence in the police complaints system and one way in which this can be achieved is by ensuring that there is proper public scrutiny when someone dies at the hands of the state.
"We are therefore extremely frustrated when anyone or anything attempts to get in the way of our ability to provide family members with information about an investigation into a death at the hands of the police  or to ensure a full public examination of the facts surrounding the death."

The statement says that the impact of the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 is "that not only can some information not be disclosed, we cannot even explain why we cannot disclose the information, as this itself would be a breach of the law. 

"In our view this places investigatory bodies in the invidious position of being unable to provide families, and the public, with meaningful information on the investigation or even explain why that information cannot be provided.  We believe this law needs to be changed."
By law certain types of surveillance including phone intercepts cannot be produced in a public court.

In a letter published in the Guardian on Thursday, Rachel Cerfontyne, an IPCC commissioner, said the watchdog did not want a secret court hearing and had alerted Duggan's coroner to the problems surrounding the secret information they had uncovered.
"The IPCC is not seeking to withhold information, but has alerted the coroner that there may be relevant material that we will be legally prevented from disclosing to him or the interested parties.

"We have drawn this to the coroner's attention at this stage because we considered it to be fair and right to give him and the family early warning of these potential difficulties."
The coroner decided the issues would not be discussed until October following a criminal trial relating to the case.

Cerfontyne said the IPCC wanted a public hearing and had raised the same problem to a House of Commons committee three years ago.

In its submission to the joint committee for human rights, the IPCC raised the issue of whether the information on certain types of surveillance, which by law cannot be heard in public, could be shared with the family by the inquest.

It said families would not otherwise be given the full picture of the events leading to the death of a loved one.

"It is because the IPCC believes that information should be disclosed to the deceased's family and the public that, in March 2009, we made a submission to the joint committee for human rights on the proposals in the coroners and justice bill on non-jury inquests," she wrote.

The Alan Wood Murder Investigation - Website Now Set Up

The Alan Wood Murder Investigation

Alan Wood was bound, tortured and mutilated at his home in the tiny rural Hamlet of Lound, near Bourne in Lincolnshire, in October 2009.  Police know that his bank cards were stolen and used in Bourne and nearby Stamford over the following couple of days. The criminal or criminals involved, despite the use of this extraordinary level of violence, walked away with just a few hundred pounds. And beyond a possible financial motive, it is still not known why the most disturbing crime in Lincolnshire in recent history was committed.

Alan was well known and liked in his tight-knit community and had no known enemies. The purpose of this site is to keep his memory and the investigation into his death alive.

Detectives at Lincolnshire Police are still working on the case and they want as many people as possible to review the evidence and get in touch with information.
  • Do you have information that could help them? 
  • Do you know who killed Alan Wood?
Help them solve this crime >>
There is a £60,000 reward for information leading to a conviction in this case.

#SmileyCulture:"Deaths in police custody since 1998: 333; officers convicted: none"

#IPCC #SmileyCulture:A year after the MURDER at the hands of the police, we commemorate Smiley Culture

Today we commemorate David Emmanuel, aka singer and entertainer Smiley Culture, who died at the hands of police during a raid at his home in Surrey one year ago.

Following Emmanuel’s death police said that Smiley Culture had stabbed himself in the heart and had died from that single stab wound in the kitchen of his home, after he had asked officers if he could go and make a cup of tea.

The  Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) subsequently conducted an investigation into Emmanuel’s death.

The Guardian reported in November 2011 that the summary of the IPCC’s final report – the coroner has asked that the full report is not made public or shared with Emmanuel’s family – condemned the raid as significantly flawed and compels the MPS to overhaul the way they plan and execute future drug seizures.

But the report concluded there was no evidence to justify bringing criminal charges to the police officers involved in the raid. None of the officers involved have been suspended, and the IPCC treated them as witnesses, not as suspects, which means they were never formally interviewed.

Nephew Merlin Emmanuel, who spearheads the campaign Justice for Smiley Culture, told the Guardian:

“We firmly believe Smiley was murdered and that the IPCC have let us down and treated us miserably.” more

#Corrupt #Met pays out £30000 to autistic epileptic boy for wholly inappropriate restraint

Police were 'hasty and ill-informed' when they restrained teenager after he jumped into a pool, high court judge rules

A severely autistic epileptic teenager who was pulled out of a swimming pool and restrained after he jumped in fully clothed during a school trip has won £28,250 damages from the Metropolitan police.

The 19-year-old, who can only be identified as ZH, had established his claim for trespass to the person, assault and battery and false imprisonment under the Disability Discrimination Act and the Human Rights Act, ruled the judge, Sir Robert Nelson, at London's high court.
He said that, although the officers attending the September 2008 incident in Acton, west London, were acting as they genuinely thought best, their responses were "over-hasty and ill-informed".

Matters escalated to the point where a "wholly inappropriate" restraint of ZH, who has learning disabilities and cannot communicate by speech, took place.

By failing to consult his carers, the police failed to understand the potentially serious consequences of applying force and restraint to ZH, who suffered moderate post-traumatic stress disorder.

He said: "The case highlights the need for there to be an awareness of the disability of autism within the public services. It is to be hoped that this sad case will help bring that about."

He refused permission to appeal although counsel for the Met commissioner said the application would be pursued directly with the court of appeal.

#MET Corruption : Daniel Morgan Murder - Memorial stone marks 25th anniversary

The memorial to Daniel Morgan Daniel Morgan's memorial stone has been placed at Glasbury church in Powys

A memorial to the murdered private detective Daniel Morgan has been placed in a Powys church yard to mark the 25th anniversary of his death.

Mr Morgan, 37, originally from Llanfrechfa, near Cwmbran, was found with an axe in his head in a south London pub car park in 1987.

His grave is in London, but his elderly mother wanted a memorial closer to her home in Hay-on-Wye.

The murder has been investigated five times, but no-one has been convicted.

Mr Morgan's mother Isobel Hulsmann, 84, and her daughter Jane Royds, who lives in Glasbury, near Hay-on-Wye, have placed the memorial stone in Glasbury church yard.

"They will put a few flowers on the memorial on Saturday," said Mr Morgan's brother Alastair, who lives in London.

"They wanted somewhere close to hand in memory of Daniel, and put up the memorial a few days ago to mark the 25th anniversary of his death.

"My mother's 84 now and travelling to and from London takes its toll."

A judicial inquiry has not been ruled out into Mr Morgan's murder.

Last month, UK Policing Minister Nick Herbert said Home Secretary Theresa May was still considering whether to order one, but other investigations might be more appropriate.

Until his death, Mr Morgan worked with Jonathan Rees at Southern Investigations.

Mr Rees was one of five men accused of murdering Mr Morgan in 2008, but after almost two years of legal wrangling, the trial collapsed in March 2010 when "supergrass" evidence was deemed to be unreliable.

Daniel Morgan Daniel Morgan was murdered in 1987 but no-one has ever been found guilty
The murder of Mr Morgan was raised at the Leveson inquiry into media standards and ethics last month in evidence from former Metropolitan Police detective and BBC Crimewatch presenter Jacqui Hames.

She told the inquiry that she and her husband, Det Chief Supt Dave Cook, were placed under surveillance by the News of the World after he appeared on Crimewatch seeking information about Mr Morgan's murder.

Ms Hames told the inquiry that Southern Investigations had "close links" to Alex Marunchak, the newspaper's crime editor in the late 1980s.

News International said last month it had "no comment" to make on Ms Hames's statement to the Leveson inquiry.

Meanwhile, MP Tom Watson has said he wants Daniel Morgan's death to be examined by the Leveson inquiry into media standards.

#IPCC Corruption - Deaths In Custody Are Not Always Reported !

Prisoner being held in police cells
Between 1998 and 2009, according to the IPCC, there were 16 cases of restraint related deaths in police custody.

The data, however, on which this conclusion was based was not available for scrutiny. 

After months of protracted argument and Freedom of Information requests the IPCC finally released to the Bureau the names of 86 people who died in circumstances where restraint was used but was not necessarily a direct cause of death.

It is from this that the list of 16 is derived.

We cross-referenced these names with other cases in the public domain and found there were other cases that did not appear in the list of 16, in which restraint clearly played a part in the deaths.

This included the case of Simon Bosworth, a property valuer in Peterborough, who died after police restrained him, possibly as he was having an epileptic fit.

It turns out the IPCC has a very tight definition of ‘in custody’ – defined only as when someone has been formally arrested or detained under the mental health act. This does not include people who have died simply after being in contact with the police.
Despite the fact that the IPCC conducted its own investigation into Mr Bosworth’s death and cited prone restraint and struggling as part of the cause of death – his name is not included in either the IPCC’s list of 16 or the total list of 86.

When asked about this omission, Tom Bucke, head of analytical services at the IPCC, said: ‘We recognise it’s restraint, we recognise it’s a serious case and therefore that’s why we did an investigation into it. It’s simply that when we reported on the figures one of the sub categories is deaths in custody and Simon Boswell didn’t appear in there, but appeared in the overall figures for that year.’ more
