Covert operations by The Met and nearby forces are the topic in this post. Pitchford has said that claims against Derek Haslam could not be heard as Haslam was “retired” however the loophole is that Haslam was being managed by the police. They are therefore legally culpable.
I will concentrate on the following – Barry Beardall, Jonathan Rees, the “Groovy Gang” (Thomas Reynolds, Thomas Kingston and Terry O’Connell), SHAC and Alastair Morgan. They appear on paragraphs 52, 67-69 and 73 of Pitchford’s document concerning participant status.
I would urge them to think hard about taking their cases to the ECHR, Strasbourg ,as it seems they did not receive a fair trial due to Haslam’s illegal, dishonest actions. In addition Hampshire, Kent, Cambridgeshire and Surrey all bear some culpability in what happened.
