Daniel Morgan murder: Appeal for new information

Post by sallypelt on 09.03.15 16:18

An appeal has been made for anyone with information about the murder of a Welsh private investigator killed almost 30 years ago, to come forward.

Daniel Morgan, from Llanfrechfa, near Cwmbran, was found outside a London pub in 1987 after an axe attack.

His family claim he was on the verge of exposing police corruption.

The police have been criticised in the past over their handling of the case and an independent panel, set up in 2013 to look at it, wants more help.

Panel chairwoman Baroness O'Loan said: "As we approach the 28th anniversary of Daniel Morgan's murder the panel would like to hear from anyone who believes they may have information which is relevant to its work.

"If you believe you have any such information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, please contact the panel."

From Wiki:


Daniel Morgan was a private investigator who was murdered in Sydenham, south east London, in March 1987. He was said to have been close to exposing important police corruption. His death was the subject of several failed police inquiries and in 2011 was at the centre of allegations concerning the suspect conduct of News of the World journalists. Morgan's unsolved murder has been described as a reminder of the London police culture of corruption and unaccountability.

Re: Daniel Morgan murder: Appeal for new information

Evidence of police corruption relating to Britain’s most notorious unsolved murder mysteriously “disappeared” from Scotland Yard during the initial investigation, according to a leaked file. A police statement taken from an officer on the first inquiry into the brutal death of Daniel Morgan suggests the victim was about to blow the whistle on a case of “major police corruption” – but internal police documents detailing the claim were removed from the incident room.
Detective Constable Kinley Davies also claimed that he and two of his colleagues tried to investigate the emerging allegations of Metropolitan Police malpractice but were “suddenly removed from the squad” by senior officers.
The claims are contained in a witness statement submitted to Hampshire Police, an outside force brought in to investigate police corruption in the murder of Mr Morgan, who was found in a south London car park with an axe embedded in his skull in 1987.
They reveal for the first time how early the inquiry into the private investigator’s death appears to have been compromised and raise new questions over the extent of criminality in Scotland Yard.
The destruction of embarrassing evidence in the Daniel Morgan murder echoes the “mass-shredding” of Operation Othona, a top-secret anti-corruption inquiry during the Nineties, which was uncovered last month by a review of the Stephen Lawrence murder – another deeply uncomfortable chapter in the modern history of the Met. The statement by the anonymous officer from Hampshire Police details an interview he conducted with DC Kinley Davies.
DC Davies paid a visit to the home of one of the suspects – called Mr X for legal reasons – on the night of the murder.
He said: “When Mr X opened the front door his face was like wax and he was starting to get beads of sweat across his brow, even though it was a winter’s night. There was no doubt that he was expecting a visit from the police.”
The officer then cryptically says he would have arrested Mr X “then and there” had another detective inspector “not been in charge”.
When Mr X was finally arrested, the officer recalls him “dropping names of senior officers and solicitors” throughout his interview.
However, the most shocking disclosure is yet more claims of the destruction of embarrassing police corruption files. DC Davies told Hampshire Police that he had been to interview a witness, who cannot be named for legal reasons. The witness told them “Morgan had uncovered major police corruption and he was going to sell it to the national newspapers”.
“DC Davies had fed this into the incident room but the document had disappeared and was not actioned.”
The statement continues: “Nevertheless, DC Davies [and two other officers] continued to investigate the corruption allegations but were suddenly removed from the squad without any reason given by the SIO [senior investigating officer]. It concludes: “This was particularly strange.”
Mr Davies, 61, who spent 28 years as a Met detective on the anti-corruption, organised crime and terrorist financing divisions, refused to speak when contacted by The Independent. However, a friend said: “There were a number of things from that time that Kinley and his colleagues found unsavoury. There were other things going on that seemed to overlap with the Morgan murder.”
Keith Vaz, chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee, said: “I am concerned that in this important investigation vital evidence may have been lost. The Commissioner rightly promised a ruthless pursuit of truth in issues of corruption and ministers have always made it clear that they will have zero tolerance of it. The Committee will be questioning the Home Secretary on these issues when she comes before us on Tuesday.”
When Roy Clark, the police chief in charge of Operation Othona, was recently told about the disposal of the highly sensitive intelligence, he said: “There would be no good reason to get rid of it… It was gold dust stuff.”
Meanwhile, Daniel’s brother Alastair, who has led a 27-year campaign for justice, hit out last night at Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe after the Met Commissioner told MPs last week that he was considering reopening an investigation into the murder.

New evidence links the murders of Stephen Lawrence and a private investigator
Mr Morgan said: “I am very worried about this because the Met’s handling of this case has been so appalling. It needs public scrutiny; it does not need the Met to put its hands on this case.”
Asked if he thought that was a “device” by the Met to “take hold” of the case, Mr Morgan said: “It could be. We have written to him [Sir Bernard] and we have had no reply to our letters. We want independent scrutiny.”
Last May, the Home Secretary Theresa May granted the Morgan family an independent judge-led panel to investigate the Daniel Morgan case following years of pressure from the family. But progress has been painfully slow.
Sir Stanley Burnton, the judge appointed to lead the panel, stepped down for “personal reasons” in November and, five months on, has yet to be replaced.
The scale of its task was brought into sharp focus last week when Craig Mackey, the Deputy Commissioner of the Met, revealed there were one million pieces of paper relating to the Morgan case in Scotland Yard’s vaults.
Last month – almost one year since the Home Secretary announced the panel – ministers revealed it had obtained just 700 documents relating to its inquiries – 0.0007 per cent of the total.
The Daniel Morgan Panel is modelled on the Hillsborough Independent Panel, the inquiry into the deaths of 96 football fans at Sheffield Wednesday stadium in 1989.
The Hillsborough inquiry was appointed in 2010 and reported in 2012. Asked whether some in the Met were still trying to cover up the corruption from 27 years ago, Mr Morgan said: “I believe that is the case… I believe certain aspects of what happened to do with my brother’s murder are still being covered up… They will put their reputation before the public interest.”
A Home Office spokesperson said: “The panel continues to carry out its work and the Home Secretary is planning to appoint a new chairman as soon as possible.”
A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: “The MPS continues to review this case and is currently co-operating fully with the independent panel established by the Home Secretary, Theresa May, to review the Met’s handling of the Daniel Morgan murder investigation.”
In evidence: Investigating officer’s statement
Statement taken from DC Kinley Davies by Hampshire Police, 23 June 1989
On confronting the murder suspect: “When Mr X opened the front door his face was like wax and he was starting to get beads of sweat across his brow, even though it was a winter’s night.
“There was no doubt that he was expecting a visit from the police.”
On peculiarities that emerged during the original murder investigation: “Morgan had uncovered major police corruption and he was going to sell it to the national newspapers. DC Davies had fed this into the incident room but the document had disappeared and was not actioned.
Nevertheless, DC Davies (and two other officers) continued to investigate the corruption allegations but were suddenly removed from the squad without any reason given by the SIO (senior investigating officer). This was particularly strange.”
Daniel Morgan: A case dogged by claims of police corruption
Scotland Yard has spent more than £50m on its four investigations into the murder of Daniel Morgan, a private investigator who was killed in 1987.
The unsolved case has been plagued from the outset with devastating claims of police corruption – and repeated alleged attempts to  cover-up historic malpractice by a Metropolitan Police force too embarrassed to admit to its own failings.
Suspects have been charged with the murder twice but prosecutions  have collapsed before  the trial and evidence have been heard in open court.
Scotland Yard and the Crown Prosecution Service blame their failures on incompetence.
The family claim they were ignored by several police commissioners and successive Labour Home Secretaries.
The acute sensitivities around the case emerged again last month when a  review of the Stephen  Lawrence murder – which happened a few miles from where Daniel Morgan was found with an axe in his  head – found evidence that  allegedly corrupt police  officers bridge both cases.
The Met continued to deny this to Mark Ellison QC despite its own intelligence. The review also found that a “lorry-load” of sensitive material from Operation Othona – that may have been relevant to both cases – had been  inexplicably destroyed in  2001 when Lord Stevens  was Commissioner.
In his conclusions, Mark  Ellison QC, who led the inquiry on behalf of Home Secretary Theresa May, also cast doubt on current Met assurances that the Lawrence and Morgan cases were  not linked, raising fresh  questions over whether  Scotland Yard can ever be trusted in investigations over either murder.

Daniel Morgan murder appeal for new information

Post by willowthewisp on 18.07.15 12:28

Do not forget the Metropolitan Police are moving to new headquarters and have received £600 million pounds for their old building!

Now do not forget to properly index the "Important Files Boys and Girls" as we do not wish to lose the paper trails on future important investigations into alleged Police malpractices, as has happened in the past??
The rather fragrant Lord Stevens, how dare you accuse this man of wrong doing with regard to Official Police conduct, Daniel Morgan, Stephen Lawrence Murders and under cover officers, he investigated the Death of Diana Windsor(nee Spencer) related to the Rothechilds Family you know?
Doctor in Ambulance"Where is the nearest hospital"(driver) I do not know but I will have to take it easy as we have a seriously injured person with life threatening  injuries sustained in the accident, nearest Hospital 10 minutes away, but they arrived at their chosen Hospital over an hour later and treated her outside the premises for a further 15 minutes before delivering her for treatment?
Oh you conspiracy theorist are at it again!?
Interesting how one Kenneth Noye's name is associated with Brinks Mat Bullion job, then crops up in the Stephen Lawrence and Daniel Morgan murders and alleged Police malpractices, plus apparent Police suicides on corruption charges to save the forces name?

Hi DougD, thanks for the article and the connection to information on the NoTw connections,fragrant Rebekah and lover Andy?
This once again shows the contempt the public are held in by Politicians and Police of all persuasions?
One thing for sure,you will find no relatives of Royalty face any prosecutions, as to the Oath they undertake,"For Queen and Country"!!?
Makes you think back to an age, which the current Politicians want the public to be scrutinised on their "Internet accounts" of what has never been released to the public by the very Learned friends from the House of Commons,Profumo Affair, eh Dave, extended for thirty more years on behalf of the Mother in Law or Royal connections at the Astor parties?

Daneil Morgan Murder.

Post by willowthewisp on 19.11.15 13:33

Perhaps Baronness O'loan should ask Rupert Murdoch and it's former NoTW editors to appear before any House of Commons Committee hearings to try to ascertain if they have any involvement appertaining to Mr Daniel Morgan's demise in this case?
On second thoughts No, as this may exclude them from being charged with "Criminal Activity"to the facts of the case,remember how fragrant Rebekah gave evidence under "Oath" to select Committees, which apparently(I May be wrong)excludes the person from prosecution in affore mentioned evidence before a Court of Justice in the UK?  Phone Hacking,payments to Police officers?

All the 'obstructing', at every 'opportunity', all the 'delaying' the 'process', at 'every' turn, all the 'raising' of 'objections' to 'handing over' internal MPS police 'files', to the 'independant' inquiry.

ALL these er, 'obstacles', were, and ARE, all 'taking place', under BHH's tenure, as the MET Police Commissioner. (THE 'big' boss!)

'Something to HIDE' Bernie boy?

Like you did with 'spying on' the Lawrence family, for over a year, before you were 'forced', thankfully, by a 'whistleblower', to ADMIT and 'fess up'  and TELL them, your MET officers WERE 'spying' on them!

AND YOU KNEW ALL ABOUT 'IT'!

If you're in the 'confessing' mode, Bernie, is there ANYTHING you'd like to 'share with us' TODAY, about your 'role', at the Hillsborough 'disaster'?

Hi Jeanmonroe,
Ref; Sir Bernard Hogan Howe and the above unsolved Murder after 28 years, disgusting to say the least!
I have come across an article from the Croyden Advertiser, wikileaks, 20 October 2014.
Apparently, Jonathon Rees, Glen, Gary Vlan and Sid Fillery are pursuing a claim of £4 Million against the Metropolitan Police Service for false imprisonment, malicious prosecution, malicious falsehood and misfeance in a public Office?
Baronness O'loan must not be following the case if it is still ongoing, as I presume it must still be a live investigation as the Met have not succeeded in prosecuting any one for the murder of Daniel Morgan yet?

11. Page used Scotland Yard’s seal of approval to convince investors to pump millions into a sham company.

Page set up a sham company called United Land and Property Development Ltd and used Metropolitan police approval on its official register of officers’ outside business interests to convince investors it was kosher. Those who fell for the trick pumped millions of pounds into the firm, which was a front for Page’s increasingly degenerate spread-betting. The fraudster was soon gambling away new investors’ money on a vast scale in the hope of winning enough to pay off earlier investors – a classic Ponzi fraud. The Met carried out no checks on the company for three years while it was the vehicle for Page’s scam. Simple research would have revealed the company had no office, no staff, no accounts, and no licence to invest other people’s money. Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, the senior officer who authorised all this when he was in charge of human resources, is now the head of the Met. The force admitted in a statement that its failure to carry out any checks was “a matter of regret”, and it is now facing potential civil claims from investors who lost their savings.

Are there ANY 'pies' left, BHH dosen't have his 'fingers' in??????

Hi DougD, thanks for the link to the ongoing campaign for the "Truth and Justice" to find out who was involved in Mr Morgan's brutal murder 10 March 1987!
Dear Rupert Murdoch and his clan have controlled nefarious politicians for so long now, that it has finally unfolded the techniques used to usurp and control people to suit their own needs,ultimately blackmailing persons with intimate personal details,Gordon Brown's son's illness and personal predilections of the selected one they need to control?
There is clear and concise knowledge of this type of action being undertaken by the "Whip's Office" from previous Conservative Government sources,"Kincora Boys Home" child abuse over decades by powerful individuals?
Take a look back at the Headlines from History over his uncovering of the,London Sex trade and illegal payments to Police Officers and how suddenly evidence,"disappeared,vanished" without a trace, when the rich and elite were caught up in their shenanigans,"Profumo Affair"and possible Royal connections,pictures of Princess Margaret?  
The "Establishment" let the Genie out of the bottle and cannot now control the Genie(Rupert Murdoch)who has obtained,phone message's,texts,pictures and stories appertaining to the rich,elite, members of society that he is able to have printed in his Daily News Papers and News Corporations throughout the World, at his whim,pictures of the present Queen and that salute,her grandson's in Nazi uniforms!  
People may scoff at the "Idea" or pass it off as a conspiracy type theory that no single person could control Governments and Democracies from around the world in this way, but hasten the thought that perhaps it isn't one person, but a selective "Clan" of like minded person's,Bilderberg Group,used to usurp power and influence the proposed Governments? 
Present day Government control,Operation Grange,Rebekah Brooks,Andy Coulson,Tommy Sheriden,"Perverting the Course of Justice(only  used to convict one person,not AC)" phone hacking, granting of Licences to broadcast,BSKYB,Jeremy Hunt,Vince Cable(two young females,blackmail)Oh and one David Cameron,Theresa May,Home Secretary?

Newport MP calls for release of police corruption report on anniversary of Daniel Morgan murder
 
1 day ago Ian Craig
 
NEWPORT MP Paul Flynn has called for a secret report into police corruption to be published on the anniversary of the unsolved murder of a Welsh private detective.
 
Speaking in Parliament on Thursday, March 3, the long-serving Labour MP said he had seen a copy of the Metropolitan Police’s internal Tiberius report into alleged corruption within the force, and called for it to be released publicly on the 29th anniversary of the murder of Daniel Morgan.
 
Mr Morgan, who grew up in Cwmbran, and had allegedly been investigating claims of police corruption when he was found with an axe in his head in the car park of a south London pub on March 10 1987. It has been claimed corruption within the police has prevented his killer from being convicted.
 
The Labour MP said the report was “the most deeply shocking document I have read in my life”.
 
Addressing justice secretary Chris Grayling he said: “Will the government publish it — perhaps next Thursday — so that the whole country can understand the breadth and depth of police corruption in this city?”
 
Mr Grayling replied “I will ensure that the Home Secretary is aware of the honourable gentleman’s concerns. I am not aware of the detail of the report, but I will make sure that she responds to his request.”
 
Mr Flynn also wrote about the case on his personal blog last week, claiming he had been allowed to read the report only under the supervision of a police officer.
 
In 2014 The Independent newspaper reported it had been leaked a copy of the report, in 2014, which reported it said more than 40 serving officers had helped criminals evade justice.
 
The Metropolitan Police has previously said releasing the report would compromise operations and tactics used by officers.

Daniel Morgan murder appeal for new information

Post by willowthewisp on 06.03.16 12:25

Hi DougD, thanks for the report on the Death of Daniel Morgan unsolved for 29 years, take a bow Sir Bernard Hogan Howe and cohorts!
I find it offensive that the Metropolitan Police Service can openly display such contempt for the serviving relatives of Mr Morgan, that to release information to the public on this report would,"Compromise Operations and Tactics used by Officers"?
Is this is not a complete misuse of public funds, by not releasing the information contained in this report,yet funded by the Tax payer on their misconduct in public Office?
Care to enlighten the public on this ongoing investigation Sir Bernard Hogan Howe?

Podcast goes to No. 1 in iTunes download charts

Post by Doug D on 09.06.16 10:52

Picked this up from ‘textusa’ site this morning:
 
JUNE 8, 2016
 
Journalism podcast investigating notorious unsolved murder of Daniel Morgan goes to number one on iTunes
 
By Dominic Ponsford
 
A journalism podcast investigating one of the UK’s most notorious unsolved murders has gone to number one this week in the iTunes downloads charts.
 
Untold tells the story of Alastair Morgan’s 29-year campaign to find out why his brother was murdered and to expose the police corruption which saw five investigations fail to bring those responsible to justice.
 
Presented by Peter Jukes, the podcast was originally broadcast in six parts with the help of £10,000 in crowdfunding. Now, with the help of sponsorship from website developers Squarespace, it has beeen revampeed and expanded to ten parts available on the podcasting distribution platform Acast.
 
Jukes said that the podcast has already generated tens of thousands of downloads and that his investigation has brought new material to light about the circumstances surrounding Daniel Morgan’s murder.
 
He said: “It is like LA Confidential: its about the media, and corruption and corrupt police.
 
“It’s about the nexus of police, private investigators and confidential inquiries that took of in the 1980s.
 
“They were bribing cops, getting personal information, bribing and blagging and the News of the World was very closely involved. Phone-hacking was the benign side of it.”
 
Daniel Morgan was murdered with an axe outside the Golden Lion pub in Sydenham in 1987 after telling friends he was going to share evidence of major police corruption with the media.
 
He was a partner in the private investigations agency Southern Investigations which would later be found to have widespread illegal dealings with the News of the World.
 
Former detective sergeant Sid Fillery was involved in the first failed investigation into Daniel Morgan’s murder before retiring from the police and replacing him as the business partner of Jonathan Rees in Southern Investigations.
 
The pair stood trial in connection with the killing but proceedings collapsed in 2008.
Morgan told the House of Commons earlier this year: “When the private investigator took over my brother’s company with the prime suspect you’d think the British press would be scratching their heads and saying: ‘Hey, what’s going on here?’ But not a bit of it.
 
“They saw it as a business opportunity and within weeks of my brother’s murder the News of the World was in business with them. There were commercial transactions that went on and which continued well over a decade. And not just the News of the World. There was also Mirror group newspapers and those are the ones that we know of.
 
“I knew there was corruption in the investigation within three weeks of my brother’s murder, I had seen it.
 
Karl Rosander, president of Acast Stories, likened Untold to US-based podcast Serial.
 
He said: “Serial captured the attention of people around the world, creating a new generation of true-crime enthusiasts. The show’s reach was international, and the UK has not had an equivalent – until now.
 
“‘Untold’ goes further than Serial, however, because Daniel’s murder represents the tip of an iceberg of corruption within the British policing and media establishment. By unravelling the story through a podcast, the Untold team can circumvent these institutions and have their voices heard, when others might want them silenced.”

Daniel Morgan murder appeal for new information

Post by willowthewisp on 09.06.16 12:49

Hi DougD, thanks for the article on Daniel Morgan and your contributions on CMoMM.
It really does make you think of how much have the Police may have colluded with Politicians to obfuscate any incriminating material out of harms way in the provision of"Protecting the Public" in a secure society?  Gives a new meaning,we need to hide this from them, to prevent Anarchy on the streets,if the public found out the Truth on what has been hidden for years?
The general public are treated like a "Mushroom Farm, where they are Fed on **it and kept in the dark" on a need to know basis!
It makes you wonder why a "Shadow Home Secretary, Andy Burnham" wants to become Mayor of Manchester,(no Offence intended) away from the protection of a relevant secure position in a new process as a Mayor, has he had enough of the B*llshit he has to feed to the public?
