Full IPCC Statement: IPCC To Investigate Allegations Of Historic Corruption

IPCC

March 16, 2015

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is to investigate 14 referrals detailing allegations of corruption in the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) in relation to child sex offences dating from the 1970s to the 2000s.

The allegations, referred by the MPS, include:

  • Suppressing evidence;
  • Hindering or halting investigations;
  • Covering up the offences because of the involvement of members of parliament and police officers.

Parallel investigations being conducted by the MPS into the original allegations of child abuse and the new criminal investigations looking at alleged police corruption are closely linked and well underway. Therefore, after careful assessment, the IPCC will manage the investigations being conducted by the MPS’s Directorate of Professional Standards.

The IPCC Deputy Chair Sarah Green said:

“These allegations are of historic, high level corruption of the most serious nature.

“We will oversee the investigations and ensure that they meet the terms of reference that we will set. Allegations of this nature are of grave concern and I would like to reassure people of our absolute commitment to ensuring that the investigations are thorough and robust.”

The decision to conduct this as a managed investigation remains under review and can be amended at any time should it be deemed necessary.

Notes to Editors

The referrals are:

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.

8)      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.

    Wow just WOW.

    And of course no evidence of wrong doing will be found, despite all of the above allegations being true.

  4. dpack

    if im putting the correct interpretations to that most of these have been documented here over the last couple of years often with some fairly good evidence or at least reference to the relevant witnesses.

    Bishop – double wow.

    Is it possible we may be in the state South Africa was in when “those uppity niggers will never be equal” ? If you get my drift?

    dpack – this humble blue topped blog may be one of the most important blogs to have followed in the last few years – one day I’d like Gojam to hang up his keyboard and we may know who he is. That is when this sordid business comes to an end.

    Bertiain and its Dependencies (for they still exist in reality) owe him an unrepayable debt.

  6. Sorry don’t get your drift re South africa

  7. I remember reading a report in the South China Morning Post in 1992 with the headline: ‘One out of 1866 complaints against the Police upheld.’

    Wow, but still so much more to be revealed and not denied. Deep respect and thanks to all the Victims and Whistle blowers who have fought, so hard and for so long to get justice. The system stinks with corruption and cover ups and please now let there be change.
    But will there be real change, as these investigations clearly go straight to the top, which would mean the security services must have known. It is hard to believe that they would ever admit to that knowledge, particularly when some allegations have been linked to the mysterious deaths of some of the Victims and Whistle blowers?
