POLICE CORRUPTION IN
THE UNITED KINGDOM.
It appears that corruption in UK Police forces is a major problem.
AAC have received massive amounts of documentation from a number of people
regarding Police corruption in various parts of the British Isles. However
time constraints prevent AAC from putting this information onto the WWW.
However one thing is certain, and that is that Police corruption is a serious
problem in Britain and that the authorities there refuse to face up to
the problem. AAC even have evidence of UK Police officers committing perjury
in Australian court cases. Details of some of this is in the book, More
Victoria Police Corruption - Hoser Files 3, which is due out in
A letter from a correspondent is reproduced
below as it succinctly shows the difficulties in fighting Police corruption
in the UK.
Identificatiion information has been removed
at the correspondent's request following further police harassment arising
from AAC posting this letter on the World Wide Web.

I am very sorry for the delay in sending you this literature. Additionally
let me apologise in advance for not getting in touch with you via your
e-mail. This is mainly because I have been tied up preparing for my final
examinations this January gone and have been unable to concentrate my mind
on other matters.
Now that is all out the way I can devote more time researching one of
my main interests which is Corruption and Cover-Up with special reference
to policing and judicial matters.
My full name is (DELETED), but my friends know me as (XXXX)i, I have
just recently graduated from University with a degree in (XXX) but do spend
quite a bit of my time researching the issue of police wrongdoing with
a view to establishing a long term campaign (if I can acquire the resources
by which to do so, as so few people take an interest in such a subject).
The primary reasons being that corruption is a serious problem here too,
in the United Kingdom but unfortunately like in many countries is swept
under the carpet, usually to save the police from any bad publicity.
Strangely enough a few police chiefs are prepared to talk about it and
do admit it is a significant problem but at very worst make out as though
it is nothing more than just a 'few rotten apples'. They are also pressing
for changes in the Law but as yet have been unsuccessful. This is due to
the fact that the Police Federation (police's union) is firmly against
the proposals put forward by senior officers because it refuses to accept
there is any problem with the current system already in place, although
it rarely ever brings any officer to justice. For instance, no more than
20 to 30 police officers on average are ever convicted of a criminal offence
every year (out of a total of almost 130,000) and as usual this is only
in cases where the accused officer was caught in the act and no cover-up
was possible. Furthermore, officers that commit offences that constitute
being 'bent for the job' are very rarely ever bought to account for their
Take, for example, the recent number of high profile miscarriages of
justice that have just come to fight. Despite the appalling scandals only
on one occasion were officers ever charged, but not convicted, with perjury
and perverting the course of justice even though victims had served up
to seventeen years in prison for crimes they could never have committed.
For further information regarding these cases please refer to the enclosed
book I have sent you in addition to the reports and various newspaper articles.
The reports relate to the Police Complaints Authority, the so-called
independent body set up to oversee internal police investigations. From
reading them you will notice that they contain more buftshit than anything
else as investigations are conducted so secretly and discreetly it is virtually
impossible to have any confidence in them.
Although I don't rely on the media as a source of reliable information
I do collect most relevant articles, usually for reference more than anything
else and have therefore sent you copies of my most important ones. Again
you will notice from reading them that the police over here are too responsible
for serious crimes such as manslaughter and do subsequently get away with
I would be grateful if you could take the time to read or glance through
the enclosed items and even more so if you could send me some information
regarding the work you do in Australia as it would be very interesting
to compare the type of corruption that arises here in the United Kingdom
to that in the Australian states. As well as the methods/techniques adopted
to combat it etc.
I do sincerely hope that I have provided you with some useful literature
and in turn welcome your views, please feel free to e-mail me on: XXXXXXXXX
(though these days I only ever check my e-mail about twice a month due
to me no longer being required to attend University). If I can be of any
further assistance to you or your campaign please do not hesitate to get
in touch with me at the above address.
