In a sensational trial 3 policemen accused of "perverting the course of public justice" have been acquitted after being investigated by fellow officers.
The judge decided that they could not get a "fair trial" for the murder "of a prostitute" Lynette White in 1988 and indeed they certainly would have been found guilty if they had been tried by a Welsh jury.
Why not the murder "of a woman Lynette White" or are prostitutes not women to be given the full protection of the law?
However the fact that important files had been destroyed by fellow police officers without reason proves that the course of public justice had been perverted and evidence that would have proved the guilt of the 8 defendants had been destroyed.
The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Simon Clements was said to be "extremely concerned" as he rightfully should be.
Tony Paris, Yusef Abdullahi and Stephen Miller were wrongly jailed for life in 1990 and it is obvious that they would have remained convicted murderers unless new DNA evidence had come to light and the real murderer Jeffrey Gafoor jailed for life for the murder July 2003.
The new evidence only came to light after the diligence of Dr Angela Gallop, a forensic scientist, who became involved in the investigation in 1999 and began carrying out tests on more than 100 items, including Miss White's clothing who was looking for the DNA of people of people who did not live in the flat or who were not subject of the police inquiry.
Dr Gallop did not recieve much co-operation in finding missing objects that had been removed by investigating police officers 11 years ago.
Also police bullied witnesses into giving false evidence against people they thought were responsible and notebooks were re-written to implicate the suspects, John Actie, his cousin Ronnie Actie, Stephen Miller, Yusef Abdullahi and Tony Paris became known as the Cardiff Five when they went on trial in 1990 for the murder of Miss White.
Mr Miller, Mr Abdullahi and Mr Paris were convicted and jailed for life and would still be serving life sentences if it were not for the persistence of Dr Gallop.
In my opinion the whole case reeks of corruption and stinks to high heaven.
