Firstly we had the nice and tidy expedited wrap up of the investigation into the rape charges against the AFL players.Then the copper who lead the investigation come out 6 years later and say he was basically gagged and told to ensure it does NOT got to court by superiors.
Then we have the Victorian premier and Police Chief come out and as no complaints were ever raised about this interference by the copper. Only hours later to say, shit, hang on, oh he did make a complaint to an “Unnamed Deputy Commissioner” (handy so he wont get his ass kicked isn’t it) so now their will be a full investigation into the crime and the corrupt shutting down of the case.
The copper that blew this deserves a medal for having the guts to tell his story, the shame is he is retired from the police force, who knows what would of happened if he went public at the time. Here is a link to the latest
ACCUSATIONS of a police cover-up in a case involving two St Kilda footballers took a dramatic turn after the Herald Sun demanded that allegations by a former detective be investigated.
After initially saying the former detective had made no official complaint about possible interference in the case, police admitted concerns had been raised at a high level.
An unnamed assistant police commissioner was told, according to Acting Deputy Commissioner of Crime Steve Fontana, who admitted to what now seems to be a smoking gun.
The revelation has severely embarrassed Premier John Brumby, who earlier read from a police statement saying no complaint had ever been lodged by former detective senior constable Scott Gladman.
Mr Brumby and the Victorian community are right to feel flabbergasted. The case in which a 19-year-old woman claimed she was raped by Stephen Milne after she and another young woman went to a house with Milne and Leigh Montagna collapsed when the Director of Public Prosecutions said there was insufficient evidence for a conviction.
