FURTHER REVELATIONS OF RACISM IN HAMPSHIRE POLICE
Police Whistleblowing Case – Southampton Employment Tribunal 5 March 2019
Further timely revelations following today’s disclosures in the press concerning racism in Hampshire police which is to feature again in the above whistleblowing case concerning former Detective Sergeant Julian King and Hampshire Constabulary.
A total of 21 employees under investigation.
The police whistle-blowing case on 5 March highlights much more than the alleged “banter” in the above press articles published recently. Corruption will be highlighted amongst senior officers to cover up various serious crimes including racially aggravated offences and the racially discriminating treatment treatment of black police officers including a black police sergeant who was hounded out of the force.
This is an importance case as it affects all whistleblowers, this case directly concerns the well known case of J Panayiotou -v- Paul Kernaghan Chief Constable of Hampshire Constabulary.
This is a case which is now quoted regularly up and down the country to try and dismiss whistleblowing claims. The decision was considered perverse by the claimant for a number of reasons including that the evidence of the claimant’s witnesses were unchallenged.
Letters in the document bundle addressed to the Chief Constable from a Senior Officer raised concerns that Mr Panayiotou was going to be victimised for whistle-blowing and of unlawful surveillance. Mr Panayiotou was unfairly dismissed in an unorthodox manner circumventing police disciplinary procedures and denying Mr Panayiotou his right to a police disciplinary hearing.
During the previous employment tribunal hearing, the claimant had raised serious concerns regarding deliberate suppression of disclosure and allegations of Misconduct in Public Office / Perverting the course of Justice.
An important file relating an allegation of police corruption concerning a paedophile investigation known as “Operation Bondfield” had gone missing. The file related to the conduct of former DCI Dave Stewart “PSD” who is now leader of the Isle of Wight Council and Chair of the Police and Crime Panel.
The most important documents in Mr Panayiotou’s case also went missing; these were the policy books for “Operation Companionway”, the policy books contain details of all decisions, who made any decisions and the rationale for those decisions. The importance of these books were such that they were kept in a safe within the offices of the Professional Standards Department “PSD”.
There were allegations made of bias against the employment tribunal judge, unusually before the employment tribunal had concluded, the Employment Judge Paul Housego went on a training day at together with Chief Constable Paul Kernaghan who; was the main witness against the claimant.
The Employment Judge had also included false and misleading information within the Judgement which was subsequently challenged at the EAT and proved following an audio recording being provided. The claimant had been given permission to audio record the hearing due to being a litigant in person with a disability. The hearing had lasted for 2 weeks and 3 days.
After the hearing and complaints being made by the claimant 2 officers including a DCI from the Professional Standards Department “PSD” were disciplined. At a later stage, further information and documents have been discovered which should have been disclosed by Hampshire Constabulary indicating that Mr Panayiotou was considered a threat as a whistle-blower.
In a report compiled by former DCI Adrian Kingswell “PSD” discussed secret surveillance of Mr Panayiotou using an undercover officer from PSD to work in Mr Panayiotou’s CID office.
The report also referred to race crimes which is also an issue in this case as Mr Panayiotou had disclosed racism towards both officers and victims of crime resulting in an inspection by the HMIC of Professional Standards in Hampshire Constabulary with the force being labelled as racist and sexist.
Other documents indicated that Deputy Chief Constable Sara Glen had not been truthful when giving evidence at the employment tribunal, The present case concerns the failure of Chief Constable Olivia Pinkney to record or investigate the claimant’s allegations against her Deputy and the Police and Crime Commissioner for failing to hold the Chief Constable to account.
A further claim has just been submitted for further victimisation concerning both Hampshire Constabulary and the Police and Crime Commissioner concerning attempts to discredit the claimant with Anne Longfield OBE (the Children’s Commissioner) which; appears to be part of the continuing cover up concerning the paedophile investigation “Operation Bondfield”.
A public open preliminary hearing has been scheduled for 5 March 2019 starting at 10am.
