Andrew Doherty

Brief blog post today on the figure of Andrew Doherty. Used by the corrupt Metropolitan Police, Doherty was an alcoholic ex psychiatric patient (indeed, he shares this with Derek Haslam, though Doherty had a white Father).

Doherty was in prison for murder when approached with a deal, time off his sentence in return for giving fabricated evidence against the wholly innocent Jonathan Rees and Vian Brothers. That plan fell apart.

No doubt The Met will try and resurrect this in the upcoming appeal, it is now in the public domain, so I am delighted to write that next year will see the long awaited appeal. Plus Channel 4 documentary.
