And so now, after nearly two years, were the police going to charge the suspects in the animal cruelty case?
Well, not just yet apparently!
Following Jane’s email to DS Husbands on 7th March 2018, asking for her complaint about the warrant to be reviewed by the IOPC, on 04/04/18 she received this email from him.
And Jane replied……..
And then DS Husbands sent this.
And on 11th April, 2018 I wrote to DCC Amanda Blakeman…..
On 12/04/18 I also emailed DS Husbands. Now the investigations into me were over there was surely no reason why I couldn’t be told the truth!
And on 23/04/18 Jane wrote again to DCI Middleton and DS Husbands.
On 24th May DS Husbands emailed Jane to say he was chasing up the IOPC for an update……but nothing! So on 1st May 2018 Jane wrote again.
And finally, on 2nd May 2018, Jane received the following letter from the IOPC………
And I again chased up my previous email to DS Husbands on 12/04/18.
And Jane chased up a previous request to see what DS Husbands had sent to the IOPC on ‘her behalf’!
But DS Husbands clearly didn’t want Jane to see what he had written to the IOPC.
How could it be that DS Husbands was going to be allowed to investigate this? You have read the disclosure issues in blog 52. DS Husbands was never going to find conduct issues with anyone else, knowing that he had been a part of the problem by not raising the disclosure issues surrounding the warrant that he was aware of.
Of course, he wouldn’t have informed the IOPC about this….well, we don’t know what he informed them because he refused to let Jane see what her complaint actually said!!!
