Police officers involved in the probe into an alleged VIP paedophile ring should themselves be investigated according to Sir Richard Henriques. He notes that when applying for warrants to search suspects' homes, the police claimed Carl Beech was a consistent witness. In a scathing comment piece in today's Daily Mail he writes that when officers applied for warrants to search the homes of Lady Brittan, Lord Bramall and Harvey Proctor, they told a district judge that Beech had been consistent with his allegations. But, Sir Richard writes: "Beech had not been consistent. In order to obtain a search warrant, an applicant must establish that he or she has reasonable ground to believe that an indictable offence has been committed." He adds: "The fact remains, however, that Beech had not remained consistent, the Metropolitan Police informed the district judge that Beech had remained consistent and 'he is felt to be a credible witness who is telling the truth'. "A criminal investigation should surely follow." I hope it does. The investigation was a shambles from start to finish!
