“Public spirited” and “curiosity” are Derek Haslam’s own words to describe his reasons for becoming a paid police informer. After his arrest for death by drink driving, a wish to get revenge on Ray Adams also figures.
Ian Hurst is inaccurately described as an ex officer – Hurst was a Lance Corporal who was in effect a filing clerk, he never held a commission. This is what Hurst gets up to today, plus where he does it.
Jukes theory also falls down when Hurst’s close ties to Alex Marunchak are examined. As stated before, Hurst never handled Freddie Scappaticci. He was close to Kevin Fulton (Peter Keeley) who is in a large English city at present.
Alec Leighton crops up, as a suspect in outing Haslam, who has two computers, one “open”, the other with his stash of child pornography which Haslam forwarded to Sid Fillery. Haslam wrong blames Sylvia Jones (blesses self, genuflects) for his being outed. Haslam had a 6000 quid alarm system fitted to his former Lynn Road, Southery property, and possesses an illegally held firearm. Haslam used the panic button installed when two folks he was attempting to blackmail arrived.
Haslam refused witness protection as he preferred money instead, he used his children as an excuse. Let us examine this.
Ashley – flips burgers at Maccy Dees. He got into Trinity College, Cambridge. He was delivering pizza.
James – implicated in the death of custody of Mr Higgins, P.C James A Haslam is in the same affinity lodge as Chief Constable Simon Bailey.
Lindsey – works as a hospital cleaner.
Stuart – if you drink Pepsi and drop a coin into a machine in or near Peterborough, chances are Stuart filled it. On a trip to Pattaya he married a “lap dancer” and Iryna now has British citizenship.
Haslam (in his own words) joined the police to stop “dishonesty and criminality” which is odd, given his and his son Jamie’s actions.
