Press Release: MPA rejects Sir Ian Blair’s report on murder of private investigator : 3rd February 2006

The chairman of the Metropolitan Police Authority has rejected the Met Commissioner’s report on the murder of Daniel Morgan.

Len Duval asked Sir Ian Blair in October 2005 to prepare a report on the failure of four police investigations to resolve allegations of police involvement in the murder.

The report presented to the MPA on 31 January has been rejected as “not adequate, for example in either reaching an understanding of past investigations or in acknowledging how possible misconduct by one or more officers may have affected the investigation of this murder”.

Daniel Morgan’s brother Alastair said today “I am disappointed but hardly surprised by Sir Ian Blair’s failure to answer the questions posed. My family and I have struggled to get answers from the Met for almost 19 years. We are pleased however that Len Duval has taken a tough stance on this.’

The Morgan family will be meeting with Len Duval on Friday 10 February to discuss the way ahead.

Len Duval has repeated his commitment to taking the matter forward to a positive conclusion.
