Letter delivered to the Home Secretary by Neville Lawrence and others

Neville Lawrence and other victims of the spycops delivered a letter to Amber Rudd today, on behalf of ‘non-State core participants’ in the Undercover Policing Inquiry.

The letter asks for the Home Secretary to intervene, and ensure that this Inquiry succeeds in its mission: to uncover the truth about undercover policing, and provide answers to those targeted by these covert, political policing units.

Women demand an urgent meeting with Amber Rudd

Today, we sent a letter to Amber Rudd, the current Home Secretary, requesting an urgent meeting with her.

We are a group of thirteen women. All of us have suffered the same devastating discovery: that we’d been unwittingly deceived into relationships with undercover police officers, who had been sent to spy on us and our friends.
Some of us made that discovery a long time ago, and have already spent over six gruelling years battling for the truth about what was done to us, and for assurances that this won’t be done to any other women in future.
We wrested an ‘apology’ from the Met Police Service in November 2015, but have had less luck getting answers to our questions: who knew about the existence of these units? how much information did they record about our most intimate lives? what is on our files? who were these men? who were their managers? which groups were they spying on? who authorised their activities? etc
In one notorious case, ‘Alison’ is still waiting for official confirmation that her ex-partner, who she knew as ‘Mark Cassidy’ throughout their relationship, was in fact a married police officer named ‘Mark Jenner’.

SDS Managers Implicated in human rights abuses – a statement from Kate Wilson

 

For almost eight years the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) have maintained that officers having sexual relationships undercover could never be an operational tactic.

The apologies they have so-far extended to myself and at least eight other women who were deceived into intimate relationships with undercover operatives, state that such relationships “would never have been authorised” and were the result of “failures of supervision and management”.

The subtext is: these were rogue officers misbehaving, and their commanding officers did not know.
