"IPCC ignore the issue of disclosure and grant Essex Police a dispensation"

“A lot has been happening while we are waiting to hear news from the CCRC on their decision. There is a lot of media interest in the case at the moment and there is a documentary currently being made to air at the end of the month. Simon Mckay has continued his work on my case and has also spoken to various media sources about my innocence.

I have heard back from Essex Police regarding several complaints I have made, despite our best efforts to stop a dispensation being applied for by Essex Police, the IPCC have ruled that a dispensation can be applied to the officers who waited 14 months before investigating the alleged fraud on my family’s estate. The grounds for the dispensation were that the complaint was received more than 12 months after the officer’s misconduct.

The system we call “Justice” does not take into account that these documents were not disclosed until AFTER the 2002 appeal, so how can I have made a complaint about it within twelve months? The allegations by Barbara Wilson that Peter Eaton had stolen sums of money and assets from N & J Bamber Ltd went uninvestigated, and the reasons behind this will never be known because of the dispensation relieving Essex Police from having to answer for this.

Other complaints currently held by the IPCC without resolution are the non disclosure of radio logs (the CCRC recently only obtaining one single page in triplicate), a senior officer of Essex Police holding a personal collection of crime scene photographs. Vandalism by officers at the scene. Failure of police to adequately obtain evidence of a struggle involving Sheila from the kitchen floor at the scene, and the issue of unreported scratch marks in addition to those under the mantle.

I have also made a complaint to the IPCC regarding John Yates, dubbed by the press as “Yates of the Yard” the former Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service. He was in charge of the “Stokenchurch” investigation carried out for the CPS preceding my 2002 appeal. We now have evidence which shows that the Met knew that the burn marks made to my father by the barrel of the rifle which Sheila used to kill the family, were investigated but the results were not disclosed to the defence. The Metropolitan police accepted that Malcolm Fletcher the forensic ballistics expert for the prosecution at trial, did not know the cause of burns and stated so in a report marked by the Met as “no further action.” As we know, this evidence is now integral to the defence case as the moderator was not on the gun during the shootings.

Once again thank you for the many letters of support and kindness from so many people which bring me comfort during the long wait for a decision.”
