Daniel Morgan murder case corruption claims ‘disappeared from Scotland Yard’
5 April 2014
Evidence pointing to corruption in the unsolved Daniel Morgan murder case “disappeared” from Scotland Yard during the initial investigation, it was sensationally claimed today.
A leaked filed revealed a statement from an officer in the first inquiry into the Welsh private eye’s slaying implied the victim was about to lift the lid on “major police corruption” – but internal police documents detailing the claim went missing from the incident room.
The revelations come eight years after WalesOnline revealed how police claimed the 37-year-old was killed because he was about to expose crooked cops involved in a conspiracy to flood Britain with cocaine.
Daniel’s brother Alastair, who lives in London, said he was unsurprised by the new cover-up claims reported in the Independent.
