“This is one of the most devastating episodes in the history of the Metropolitan Police”
In Parliament today the Home Secretary Priti Patel so responded to the report of the Daniel Morgan Independent Panel’s conclusion of institutional corruption.
Kate Blackwell QC has been Counsel to the Panel for the last 8 years during which there has been forensic scrutiny of the numerous investigations and operations surrounding the murder of Daniel Morgan. The time taken by the Panel to complete its investigations was the result of delays and difficulties caused by the Metropolitan Police. There was an additional delay caused by the last minute, unexpected and unnecessary demand by the Home Secretary to review the report before its publication. The report, finally published today, without redactions, can be found here.
