“Watching the detectives” ripped off from a post title here, on Tom Watson, as was “Serpico” (in fact the Alan Holmes suicide note did not contain any mention of Serpico). Dear Jukes, please try and get titles from sources other than here, or at least acknowledge the site, thanks.
Operation Two Bridges was mentioned, as was Operation Abelard II though Jukes never stated that it was derailed due to his sole source, Derek Haslam, taking documents and evidence, (oddly Hampshire plod never questioned this, though Operation Russell did). Haslam signing his affadavit with two different signatures (one was his half brother David). More on Haslam’s extra curricular activities here.
Now to Sid Fillery, who Jukes pulls out of a top hat, like some jaded magic rabbit. Fillery was arrested along with Jonathan Rees, the Vian brothers and James Cook. All were acquitted. Now might be time to draw the audience’s attention to Flynn and Gillard’s book (1). Haslam was working for The Met, sabotaging all headway being made in the Daniel Morgan murder cover up, hence no convictions.
Haslam was aided by one of Norfolk Police’s “finest” Andy Hayman. Along with John Stevens and DCS Dave Cook, they were a triumvirate of bent coppers. Jukes keeps regurgitating Alex Marunchak, but it does him no favours, Marunchak was the paymaster of Ian Hurst, who is now suing all and sundry with no chance of success. Marunchak and Greg Miskiw link up, both second generation Ukrainians in England. Is Neville Thurlbeck the “other journalist” Jukes states is not named for legal reasons?
Finally, Jukes adds some juicy comments from a lachrymose Jacqui Hames, worried about Jill Dando’s fate. Barry George, fitted up and framed by New Scotland Yard, as were Rees, Fillery, Vians and Cook.
