The latest episode in Mr Jukes series of podcasts has little new material, indeed, he pads it out with repeated quotes from episodes one and two. The role of John Ross was not secret, he was well known in the demi-monde of Sarf Lunnen. Again however, Jukes shoots himself in both feet, then reloads and shoots again.
Alex Marunchak was connected to “Southern Investigations”, he was also linked to Jukes’ “amazing new source” Ian Hurst of “iTraceUK” a close pal (of of the few) of disgraced ex Det Con Derek Haslam. Hurst is not a “private eye” as Jukes insists but a former black ops Lance Corporal in Northern Ireland. Lately Hurst has been caught breaking the law, more here.
Now we come to the dubious testimony of Haslam.
Haslam asks us to accept that he was involved in observing bent cops in a Miami cocaine importation deal that led to Daniel Morgan’s murder. Haslam’s veracity is not overwhelming, he told readers on the “My Telegraph” site that his “Father was at Harrow and commanded a regiment at D Day”. Haslam Senior was a Jamaican who lived in Clapham.
The podcast mentions Holmes (Alan “Taffy” Holmes). Holmes introduced Haslam into Manor Of Bensham lodge 7114, Haslam’s eventual betrayal of Holmes contributed to the suicide of “Taffy”. More light needs to shine on Haslam, he is desperate to sell his house in Lynn Road, Southery, PE38 and flee Britain. Odd too that a man in “witness protection” would appear on BBC’s Panorama programme.
One can however briefly sum up Haslam’s role since his leaving the Metropolitan police in October 1989 (recurring mental illness). He infiltrated the Daniel Morgan family and justice campaign, then subverted Op Abelard II, plus many other inquiries.
To conclude, Jukes makes much of the imagined implication of Jonathan Rees and others in the Daniel Morgan murder cover up.
Jonathan Rees – acquitted almost half a dozen times. Either innocent, or the greatest criminal mastermind in U.K history.
Likewise Gary and Glen Vian.
Ditto, Sid Fillery.
Plus several others.
