Three letters about
the Councillor Peter Craske case all in one day…
The Independent Police Complaints Commission confirmed that it doesn’t matter how slow the Metropolitan Police’s Directorate of Professional Standards are to respond to complaints, there is nothing they can do about it. There were two new bits of information. The police are not allowed to drop an enquiry referred to them by the IPCC, mine was, and “the IPCC acknowledges this is taking a significant period of time and for this reason I have contacted the Directorate of Professional Standards”. That’s in addition to referring it to a Senior Case Officer as an example of extreme delay.
The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime has said they are not interested in Metropolitan Police malpractice unless the complaint is directed at Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe himself. Now there’s an idea.
From the Directorate of Professional Standards - maybe the IPCC really has kicked their backsides - comes news that they have still not achieved anything but one of the Bexley officers they’d like to interview cannot be found. Now where did I hear that one before?
If you are in any doubt about just how corrupt the Metropolitan Police can be, get yourself to a library before yours closes and ask for a copy of Michael Gillard and Laurie Flynn’s book. The paper version is out of print but there is an updated version for Amazon’s Kindle.
