Spycops – The People’s Inquiry, July 2018
On 8 July 2018, people targeted by Britain’s political secret police held a ‘people’s inquiry’ at Conway Hall in London. Exasperated by the state public inquiry’s bias toward secrecy as it drags on for years without even formally starting, the victims of spycops held this theatrical event to envision what an effective inquiry would look like. …
It was part of a weekend of activities celebrating 50 years of progressive political campaigns achievements despite being infiltrated by counter-democtratic police. Full details of the weekend’s activities are here.
Our recommendations following the People’s Public Inquiry:
1. Full disclosure of all names – both cover and real – of officers from the disgraced political police units, accompanied by photographs
2. Release of the names of all groups suspected to have been spied upon
3. Release of all personal files on activists
4. Extension of the inquiry to all countries where the British spycops are known to have operated
5. The appointment of a diverse panel with experience relevatnt ot victims to assist the chair in making decisions and judgements
6. Inclusion of children and young people who had contact with spycops as Core Participants in the Inquiry
7. Urgent and immediate review of convictions where spycops had involvement in the cases & misled courts – 50 wrongful convictions have already been overturned and this is likley to be a fraction of the true total.
8. The Inquiry must extend its scope to understand political policing and its impact on democracy. This must include a thorough investigation into racist, sexist, anti-working class, anti-democratic behaviour on behalf of the spycops and those that instructed them to operate in this manner. Such political policing and political policing units must be abolished.
9. An urgent review into all undercover police activities to investigate whether the bad practice exposed by this inquiry has been extended to other areas of undercover operations
10. Make available the necessary resources of the judge to be able to do their job in the available time
11. Equalising of resources, the police are spending millions on stonewalling the inquiry, victims have almost nothing
12. Increase the severity of penalties for non-compliance with the inquiry
13. Investigation into collusion between police and corporate spies

‘Conspiracy to rape’ – Victims of spy cops indict the state
WOMEN who found out their partners were undercover police spies insisted yesterday that they are the ‘victims of a conspiracy to rape’ by the police.
An ongoing public inquiry into undercover policing has seen several women win apologies and compensation. Over a number years dozens of undercover officers, part of the covert Special Demonstration Squad (SDS), were unmasked. They had infiltrated political parties, environmental groups and campaigns.
It also emerged that police had even spied on the family of Stephen Lawrence, the teenager murdered in London in 1993. It was at this point that Theresa May, then Home Secretary, had to order a public inquiry. This concluded that police who had long-term sexual relationships with their targets ‘abused their positions’. The police then issued an ‘unreserved apology.’
However, one of the victims known as ‘Rosa’ (not her real name) said: ‘If you put all these things together, you have a team of officers conspiring to rape.’ She and another woman have spoken of feeling betrayed after falling in love with men who turned out to be spies. In some cases the police spies actually fathered children with them.
‘They know there was no informed consent,’ she said. It’s the whole gang of them, and there’s no other way of terming it for me than a gang. You’ve got mentors, you’ve got handlers a whole backroom team of people monitoring – and directing it would seem – their relationships, their activities.’
For the first time Rosa, and the other woman, both from Wales, have revealed on camera the full story of how they became involved in intimate relationships which seemed genuine, but were in fact charades as police forces infiltrated groups they thought needed monitoring.
In 2000, Rosa spent three months in South Africa looking for Jim Sutton, the man she was in love with. The trouble was that man did not really exist. Rosa met him in a London pub while she was a political activist in a group called Reclaim the Streets.
Then Sutton stunned her by saying he wanted to go travelling, on his own – to ‘sort his head out’ and promptly disappeared. He said he planned to go to Turkey, Syria and then South Africa. Rosa started her own detective work but could find no trace of the family he said he had. So she headed to South Africa, to find him. I was walking round South Africa just saying “excuse me have you seen this person?” I was in torture, I needed answers.’
She found no trace of him, and returned to the UK. Her search continued though, and clues led her to south London, and the offices of the secret police unit Sutton worked for. Just two days later she found him. The encounter forced Sutton to confess he had been living a lie. He was not Jim Sutton, he was police officer Jim Boyling.
Spycop who duped a woman into a relationship would be investigated for gross misconduct today: here.
