Open Letter To The IPCC. Still as Bent as a Nine Bob Note.


Case Reference Number : 2016/065047


Dear Sir/Madam 

I confirm receipt of an email dated 09 May 2017, a copy of which I include at the bottom, from James Cropper, Apprentice Casework Administrator, with the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

Like Devon & Cornwall Police I acknowledge the need not to use any senior members of staff but less experienced and more expendable ones.

I also acknowledge your confirmation that you received my emails of 03, 05 and 08 May 2017, which consisted of 2 blogs, 2 copied letters from Devon & Cornwall Police and a short email to the IPCC.

I regret I do not recognize Reference PSD/CO/679/16 or CO/679/16 because they do not represent the official complaint I lodged with the IPCC and Devon & Cornwall Police just over a year ago. Complaint Case Reference Number 2016/065047.

With regard to the right of appeal advice and the CAU leaflet I received from Devon & Cornwall Police on 05 May and dated 27 April 2017, a letter I allege was backdated and was not posted until 03 May, the appeal expiry date of “26 May 2017”, according to Devon & Cornwall Police, and “25 May 2017”, according to the IPCC, allows only some 20 days to appeal rather than the specified “28 days”.

In reply to your statement Devon & Cornwall Police have ”informed us that the IPCC are in fact the correct Relevant Authority to consider this appeal”, unquote, I think it more likely the IPCC informed Devon & Cornwall Police after reading the willfuly misleading copy letter dated 27 April and realized its collusion with Devon & Cornwall Police had been rumbled.

Having already accused Temporary Chief Inspector Rachel Bentley, the author of the letter I allege was backdated to 27 April 2017, of conspiring with others to pervert the course of justice to protect an even greater conspiracy, and to now learn that she also willfuly misled me into believing the IPCC would have nothing to do with the appeal, I again request her immediate suspension and external and truly independent and impartial investigation.

This together with co-conspirators Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer, Mr P Chudley of the Professional Standards Department (PSD), Mrs Angliss of the (PSD), Trainee Inspector Reid, and PS 5434 Paul Jones.

That the aforementioned knew they were not investigating my official complaint but were perversely investigating a single paragraph taken from an email by Mr P Chudley of the (PSD), who was empowered by Chief Constable Shaun Sawyer.

Yours sincerely
