Sexual misconduct in the police force
Private Eye 1289 mentions a case involving serious allegations of sexual misconduct against a senior staff member of the Met police force.
The man has taken early retirement after a period of sick leave.
The Daily Mail have reported he is married, in his 50s and ...
"...He has overseen a number of controversial issues that have led to turmoil within the organisation and the departure of key individuals. Yet in a rare move, both he and his female colleague, who is considerably younger than him, have persuaded an employment tribunal judge to impose a secrecy order on the proceedings."
Apparently Private Eye should not have mentioned he worked for the Met police.
So more civil servants funded by the tax payer are using our money to take out injunctions.
[UPDATE 30 MINUTES LATER]
As pointed out by a commentator this is an odd story because the day before the Daily Mail appear to name the people ...
"A leading Scotland Yard official under investigation over ‘highly sensitive’ misconduct allegations made by a female colleague has retired early with a £180,000 pay-off. Critics claim that Martin Tiplady, the Met’s director of human resources, has been given favourable treatment because of his status in the force.
The Daily Mail revealed in October that Mr Tiplady was facing career-threatening allegations made by Raphaella Hamilton-Appiah, a member of staff more than 20 years his junior."
