Jukes begins by examining motives for the murder, the two most obvious were drug dealing (Maltese) or a jealous husband. Then on to Kevin Lennon, a fraudster who stated that Jonathan Rees was involved in the killing. Half a dozen inquiries could find no evidence for such a claim.
Derek Haslam portrays himself as a “whistleblower” in the Serpico mould, he is far nearer to a shabby con man, as one can see with the following link.
For good reason Jukes omits the name of the shambles that Hampshire Police (masonic pals of Haslam) led, Operation Abelard II. Haslam has an agenda, to draw attention from high ranking police corruption – such as John Yates – and put a focus on Ray Adams, who hated Haslam as a prime example of a bent cop.
Jukes winds up with more obfuscation surrounding Alan “Taffy” Holmes suicide, now an “alleged” suicide. Bearing in mind that Haslam was named in the suicide note as the cause of Holmes despair that again is not surprising.
