Ex-crime tsar unlikely to face action over grooming scandal

Shamed former police commissioner Shaun Wright is unlikely to face action over claims he misled MPs about what he knew of Rotherham’s abuse scandal.

A meeting of the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Panel will decide on Thursday whether to refer the matter to Parliament after the IPCC refused to carry out an investigation and a report warned the panel themselves couldn’t take any sanctions against Mr Wright if they conducted their own probe.

Panel members have also been warned while the case can be referred to Parliament, it uses contempt powers ‘very sparingly’.

  1. “…….after the IPCC refused to carry out an investigation ”

    Well that’s a real surprise isn’t it , considering what a fantastic job they are doing rounding up all the corrupt police implicated in the CSE scandal ?

    The IPCC are a cover-up organisation – always have been , and always will be.

  2. What good is the IPCC to the general public. They only investigate what they want to investigate, no matter how serious the case. Who pays these people their big fat salaries? Who employs them? Are they people who can’t get other jobs and are kept in the manner they have become accustomed, by mates that can? How much would the public save if this “Service” was scrapped?

  3. Could the apparent lack of enthusiasm for nailing Wright, be because it would undoubtedly lead to him opening up the can of worms labelled ‘Who else knew,’ a scenario Parliament might not be keen on?

  4. Mr Wright has remained remarkably quiet considering he has been hung out to dry by the establishment, I am told, is every bit as complicit as him. Palm washing palm here, what a surprise that would be?
