A police raid in Cyprus is having repercussions further afield. Hero of the hour is Alec Leighton, a “known associate” of Jonathan Rees, so this story connects to the Daniel Morgan murder cover up. Perhaps the Saab brothers could lend a few million quid to New Scotland Yard, in order to pay compensation to four wrongly convicted men?
Money laundering went on at the Halifax and Santander, Ely, too. Why is Costas Clerides so reticent on fiscal irregularities? Would he prefer Cyprus to be known as a sunny place for shady people? Can we send him Cook the crook?
