Technically it is another case, but actually connected to Daniel Morgan. Beech received an 18 year sentence for his crimes. A known fantasist and liar, Beech accused many in the military and political world in the wake of the Savile case. The Metropolitan Police, masters at the art of lazy and slapdash investigation, stated that Beech was “credible and true”.
Beech was white knighted by Tom Watson, deputy leader of Labour (well, for the time being, anyway). Watson was a prime mover in speaking out against Jonathan Rees and the others who were wrongly accused in the Daniel Morgan murder. Watson also links to Peter “The Armenian Shakespeare” Jukes, who propagates New Scotland Yard’s line on not looking further than Rees as a main suspect.
Before I fly off I came across something which solves one mystery anyhow, so let us hear no more nonsense about “Reds” Haslam not being Jamaican.
