A temporary set back for the campaign to obtain justice for Jonathan Rees, Glenn Vian and Sid Fillery yesterday. One did not hold out much hope that Lord “Plebgate“Mitting would observe the legal definition of core participant status for Messer Rees, Vian and Fillery.
I refer to the original Pitchford ruling, paragraphs 67 and 68 mention SHAC and the use of undercover, paid, employed spies by the Metropolitan Police. In particular, one “retired” ex Det Constable, Derek Gordon HASLAM. Haslam was well paid by New Scotland Yard, had to sign the Official Secrets Act, then passed legal documents to prosecutors – which is a criminal act.
The main focus is on the cases of Jonathan Rees (wrongly suspected in the Daniel Morgan murder) his former brother in law, Glenn Vian, and Sid Fillery who eventually worked at “Southern Investigations”. In addition to this, Haslam also sabotaged the appeal of Barry Beardall. Finally, Haslam also wrecked the cases of the “Groovy Gang” (R v Reynolds, Kingston and O’Connell).
To conclude, what was Haslam’s role? Though he had left the police (mental illness, Oct 1989) he was now back in the employ of The Met, therefore Mitting used a loophole (Haslam was not actually in the police). With his inquiry now an omnishables it is high time Mitting was replaced.
