Still gloating over the financial loss to New Scotland Yard and the fact that their already sullied reputation is in tatters, following Justice Cheema-Grubb’s ruling. Then it struck me that more damage could be inflicted, before I walk off into the sunset in a few months.
The roles of disgraced ex Det Ch Supt Dave Cook (now rebranded as David Imrie-Cook) needs to be examined, as does that of Jacqui Hames and others, who white knighted for him (fraudster Mark Williams-Thomas par example).

Paragraph 16, we arrive to a reason why Jonathan Rees did not get a larger award. There is unfinished business regarding his unsafe and unsound conviction in the Simon and Kim James case. I won’t give details away, but in a few months the Metropolitan Police face even more damaging details emerging, Rees was framed. Proof?

Not only did the half Jamaican Haslam senior edit the covert recording, but Haslam, a known avid child pornography collector, placed his own stash of images on the computer of the blameless Sid Fillery.
