Northumbria Police Institutional Denial and Cover-Up

Institutional denial - Northumbria Police must now tell the truth

I maintain that Chief Superintendent Chris Thomson (the SIO heading my 1999 attemped murder case) and also the Chief Constable of Northumbria Police have knowingly put forward false information, misleading and even damaging information about me to both the press and also me as the victim in this case.

I also maintain that Chief Superintendent Chris Thomson and also the Northumbria Police Chief Constable have, since my 1999 attempted murder, been party to a covered-up. The cover-up of IRA involvment in my case and also hiding the truth. It can not be right that police officers and or a police force, Northumbria Police, can be involved in a cover-up of an attempted murder which was carried out by IRA terrorist. Northumbria Police, its Special Branch and Mi5 continue to hide the truth from me as the victim in this case. I maintain that Chief Superintendent Chris Thomson, Northumbria Police Chief Constable are being influenced by political pressure.

Northumbria Police have damning evidence that lays bare the role of IRA involvment in my 1999 attempted murder. However, Northumbria Police have, since June 1999, turned a blind-eye to my attempted murder by the IRA.

Northumbria Police continue to cover-up both the events, background of the 1999 IRA attack on me and also IRA involvment in my shooting. I have a right to know the truth and I also have the right to get justice in my case. I will not rest until Northumbria Police tell the truth.
My hope is that Northumbria Police will stop their cover-up, their hiding the truth of that terrible deed that was committed by the IRA on the 17th June 1999 against me.
It is very clear that there is a hierarchy of victims in Northern Ireland, justice appears to be one eyed. Northumbria police, in my view, have failed me and they continue to do so. Northumbria Police have let me, as the victim in this case, down.

Northumbria Police's investigation into my attempted murder has been flawed from day one. As the victim I have been virtually ignored by Northumbria Police. I maintain Northumbria Police have acted unlawfully when dealing with my case(s) and that they continue to act unlawfully and have breached my Human Rights.

I will be reserving all my legal rights and I am reserving the right to take legal action against both the Chief Constable of Northumbria Police and also Chief Superintendent Chris Thomson. I hold them directly responsible for the leading role they have played in what I regard a systematic cover-up by Northumbria Police.

My disgust and mistrust of Northumbria Police Chief Constable and also Chief Superintendent Chris Thomson is such that I have no confidence whatsoever in them. I have already informed them of this many times.

There must now be an independent review into my 1999 attempted murder case. The case should also be taken over by another independent third party. The events before, during and after my shooting must now be investagated properly, openly and more importantly transparently. The role of the CPS must also be looked at
