REFORM THE IPCC RENAMED OFFICE FOR POLICE CONDUCT OPC. www.brightonscandal.org.uk
URGENTLY REFORM THE IPCC. THE IPCC MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO PROTECT POLICE CRIMINALS.
PROPOSED NEW REFORM MEASURES MUST HOLD THE POLICE TO ACCOUNT. INDEPENDENT POLICE COMMISSION PETITION www.brightonscandal.org.uk
Why is this important?
The Home Office state the IPCC are the only way to hold the police to account. It is of concern that the IPCC are able to block a complaint relating to serious police corruption. As a result of this the police are able to act without fear of prosecution and innocent people are locked up.
The IPCC blocked my complaint presented by Simon Kirby MP regarding senior police officers who lied when they stated my brother, Alex, stabbed a police officer in the chest with a very large kitchen knife. The case was dropped when it was proved the large knife to be a small mobile phone.
The 'stabbed' Officer, facing near death, became a media hero and received an award. Alex served 15 months in a high security prison awaiting trial. Campaign site includes IPCC complaint, full story, evidence and letters by senior police officers.
