The recent “Private Eye” article on feet dragging by the Metropolitan Police concerning the damaging cover up of the Daniel Morgan murder opens a can of worms. HHJ Mitting stated that if ex DCS Dave Cook had not been found by 4 pm yesterday then the civil case against New Scotland Yard would go ahead.
The Directorate of Professional Standards of the Metropolitan Police are looking at the issue of Cook and others perverting the course of justice, Cook played the mental illness card (as Derek Haslam did and does) by claiming severe depression, acute agoraphobia and post traumatic stress disorder. 27 men from the Met dug up Cook’s back yard, they found three hard drives, including one in his loft, Cook said “I am done for…I am fu**ed”. Cook has not been interviewed – as yet – by the police about the hard drives contents.
Now to the Met’s solicitors and the role of Gary Eaton. Eaton rifles? Plod’s solicitors along with The Met themselves are to offer Cook inducements to testify in the civil case, brought by Jonathan Rees, Sid Fillery and the Vian Brothers. Investigations into Eaton’s illegal activities will be dropped if Cook plays along.
It is very odd that the Metropolitan Police do not know Cook’s location, Goggzilla does. It is in Kirkcaldy, near to Gordon Brown, who has a dark role in mistreatment of Messers Rees, Fillery and Vian. With a total cost of 50 million quid, and a four million pound record breaking cast iron case facing them how long can The Met hold out on this one?
