Daniel Morgan was murdered by one of the Metropolitan Police, who then covered up the killing by accusing Morgan’s business partner, Jonathan Rees of “Southern Investigations”. Front runner in the identity stakes of the murderer is “FCR” – now as to the motive. The sole importance of David Bray’s book, is the chapter devoted to a trip to Malta, that Morgan and Bray made a month before the killing.
A repossessed range rover was driven from Gozo, the length of Italy and France, back to England. Did a drugs shipment “go missing”? This is far more plausible than Peter Jukes non runner, a cobbled together fantasy, involving Nikolaus Chrastny and “Miami Vice”. The dates and places do not fit. Unsurprising, as his only source is fellow ex psychiatric patient “Joe Poulton” whom even New Scotland Yard dubbed as “unreliable and untrustworthy”.
Did the Maltese arrange for FCR to murder Daniel Morgan?
Why haven’t the Metropolitan Police given Rees and the Vian brothers, in addition to others, adequate compensation?
Jukes also throws in a red herring, Alan “Taffy” Holmes was not “onto a multi million pound drugs import” (the Chrastny hypothesis). Holmes knew Morgan vaguely (see Bray) but was far more worried about the pressure he was placed under by “Poulton”, which eventually led to Holmes suicide and Poulton/Haslam being kicked out of Manor of Bensham 7114 lodge (see Poulton debrief).
Poulton/Halsam is now hiding in the Shouldham area of Norfolk, and is presently in the same lodge as Chief Constable Simon Bailey, ACPO lead on child abuse.
