From the link above.................




The police watchdog is investigating allegations of "serious corruption and malpractice" within Scotland Yard's own standards unit, a director has said.
The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) is probing claims of "potentially conflicted" senior officers in the Metropolitan Police's anti-corruption unit.

Its investigation will examine whether officers within the Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS) unit - subject of the BBC drama Line of Duty - interfered with or curtailed investigations or failed to look at alleged wrongdoing altogether.

Jonathan Green, the IOPC's London director, said the watchdog was also investigating claims of racial discrimination in the DPS, which is tasked with tackling misconduct and corruption in the UK's largest police force.





So far, gross misconduct notices have been served on three officers, one of whom is also under criminal investigation, while "a number of officers" are also being assessed.
Scotland Yard said it was "fully co-operating" with the IOPC's investigation into allegations against "a number of MPS (Metropolitan Police Service) personnel".





Mr Green told The Sunday Times: "I can confirm we have begun an investigation into allegations of serious corruption and malpractice within the Directorate of Professional Standards of the Metropolitan police.
"The investigation includes alleged interference in, and curtailment of, investigations by potentially conflicted senior officers, failure to investigate allegations of wrongdoing, systemic removal of the restrictions of officers under investigation and racial discrimination.





"As part of this investigation three officers have been served with gross misconduct notices and one of those officers is also under criminal investigation. Assessments on the status of a number of other officers remains ongoing."
According to The Sunday Times, three whistleblowers from the force approached the IOPC to allege members of the DPS were shielding officers from a range of allegations.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "The Metropolitan Police Service has referred allegations regarding the conduct of a number of MPS personnel to the IOPC which is conducting an independent investigation.
"The MPS is fully co-operating with the IOPC investigation."

Whistle blowing in the police force would probably lead to career suicide. so any whistle blowing would probably come from the people who are in control (corrupt) and want to get rid of the people who aren't with the "IN CROWD". An easy way to get rid of the proper good guys.
Who investigates the whistle blowing,they would need authority from the TOP. AIMO

Interesting timing in terms of when the two 'tycoons' withdrew their financial support. But it would seem that the 'fighting fund' had already been able to secure some high profile 'experts'.


The Media Guardian website is reporting that the couple are looking for a "big hitter" to work as their full-time PR representative as the investigation into their daughter's disappearance enters a new phase.

Phil Hall, the former News of the World and Hello! editor, who has been acting as a consultant to the McCanns in recent months, is thought to be the leading contender.

The world's leading expert in DNA cast doubt on a key facet of the alleged forensic evidence against Kate and Gerry McCann last night as he offered to act as an expert witness for the couple.

Sir Alec Jeffreys, who invented DNA fingerprinting, said a match did not necessarily demonstrate a person's guilt or innocence.

His caution came as a leading genetics expert also called into question the value of DNA evidence in its own right. Dr Paul Debenham, a member of the advisory body the Human Genetics Commission, said there could be legitimate reasons as to how DNA from Madeleine found its way into the hire car.

You couldn't make it up,and yet some believe these buffoons can sort out an alleged abduction,I'm not saying any officers from some investigation codenamed Operation Grange are involved but they do belong to the very same Scotland Yard.

Not forgetting of course who is in charge of the MET none other than Cressida (in charge of shoot an innocent dead on the London underground) Dick.



Police watchdog investigates 14 Scotland Yard officers over claims they covered up misconduct in Met force's biggest corruption probe in 40 years


latest from the Mail.

Indeed. I really resent the fact that so much tax-payers money has gone into the case when, having read the PJ files, it seems fairly obvious where the trail goes.

IMO.

But what a damned cheek. Don't they care about their reputation? The sardine-munchers clocked it from word go.

ETA: Not to mention that Madeleine appears to have represented a 'good marketing opportunity' according to her father. What a thing to say in the context of your child who has allegedly gone missing.
