Mark Hewitt of the Economic Crime Unit (not the Central Economic Unit as reported elsewhere) did a dodgy deal with James Ward. Ward was facing 17 years in jail and a bill of 4.9 million pounds – Hewitt may have played a role in reducing this to 3 years in prison and 633,000 quid. Ward was worried about his wife’s health and ex DCS Dave Cook played on this, ensuring Ward took part in framing the Vian Brothers along with Jimmy Cook, Sid Fillery and Jonathan Rees.
Stuart Sampson of the Clown Prosecution Service is also embroiled. Look to Operation Abelard II and corrupt activities. Ward claimed a two bed flat in Battersea was his sister’s, via an inheritance from their parents. It is to Stephen Simblet we must turn our attention to in the search for truth. The next few weeks will see not only trial by Jukesy but the exoneration of men in a notorious miscarriage of justice.
