All four cops ended up on trial along with Benson and William Kurr (plus a lawyer).Wealthy businessman and Freemason Yonge escaped, he was too powerful to bring down.
Burrows and Eustace said (25yrs later), the case and investigation was not normal police practice as one usually investigated the circumstances after a crime had been committed, but this one was to 'invent a crime and find things to support it' Apart from this, everything found had to be logged and the Prime Minister had to be kept informed and receive copies of all the evidence and reports-- ' A closed copy for his eyes only' They realised they were being employed to go on 'a fishing expedition' to justify an expected catalogue of charges ---'Go and find one that will stick in a court of law' was the order from the Met Chief.So they have declined in favour of the image they prefer to be fed to the public, the propaganda and the lie they perpetuate like the Judiciary and Lawyers. There is so much material to cover and volumes already compiled that we will first begin with recent news items such as the 742 Police Officers arrested and another item by the Liberal Democrats announcing that 1,063 police officers have criminal records and are serving officers in the police.This might shock, but it is a fact the tip of the iceberg and not a full picture of police corruption --- it goes much deeper than those figures and encompasses all ranks -- as you will see if you go to ' The Bent Cops' list, which is just a snapshot of what we have in our files. Although the Police Force was in it's formative years and malpractice was a regular event, the conviction of four senior officers for taking bribes caused the public to doubt the integrity of a force that should have been law abiding.There was a Judicial and Government cover-up with a trail made deliberately confusing that led all the way to the Lord Chief Justice whose intervention made sure that Stephen Ward was found guilty -- he had to be sacrificed for the sake of John Profumo the then Secretary of State for War in the Macmillan Government in the 1960's -- when the State decided to lie, cheat and deceive, using its powers to put an innocent citizen in prison for the sake of minimising a scandal and what they considered; the greater good! one died, one retired and went into hiding in Australia and simply vanished?The two Junior ranks, Detective Sergeants, now immune --- waited 25 years before admitting that Ward had been set-up by the Law and an adversary that he could not escape --- the British Legal system did everything it could to make certain that Ward was convicted; and later information uncovered showed that Lord Justice Parker played a major part in carrying out the miscarriage of justice.
Many bookies suspected Yonge and the unusual large winnings at the race course. Yonge was a trickster and he chose victim Comtesse de Goncourt for a swindle acting as the betting agent using an alias.
