IEP REPORT

The Reporter alleged that there had been breaches of Parliament’s Sexual Misconduct Policy, namely that during the brief period he worked for Mr Rob Roberts MP, Mr Roberts made repeated and unwanted sexual advances towards the reporter, using his position as his employer to place him under pressure to accede. Mr Rob Roberts MP also made inappropriate comments of a sexual nature and was overly intrusive about his personal life.

The Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards found that the Mr Roberts had acted in breach of Parliament’s sexual misconduct policy. Mr Roberts appealed the Commissioner’s decision and the case was referred to the Independent Expert Panel.

The Panel determined that Mr Rob Roberts MP should be suspended from the House for six weeks. This decision was upheld on appeal. The suspension can only be imposed following a motion in the House.

The process for a petition under the Recall of MPs Act 2015 is not triggered by a suspension imposed on the recommendation of the Panel. For a recall to be initiated, the sanction must be imposed on the recommendation of the Committee on Standards, or another Committee of the House of Commons concerned with standards of conduct.

Sir Stephen Irwin, Chair of the IEP has said: “The misconduct demonstrated here was significant. It is evident that Mr Roberts MP was in a very powerful position as an employer in relation to the Reporter. Our conclusion is that the determination of six weeks suspension from the service of the House was proper and proportionate.”

The full report is available here.

The Panel 

The members of the IEP are as follows: Mrs Lisa Ball, Monica Daley, Mrs Johanna Higgins, Sir Stephen Irwin (Chair), Professor Clare McGlynn, Miss Dale Simon, Sir Peter Thornton, Dr Matthew Vickers

Further details of the members can be found on the IEP webpages here.

(LONDON) CPS REPORT: Two police officers have been charged with misconduct in public office in connection with photographs taken and circulated in relation to a murder crime scene #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.29: The misconduct alleged relates to the investigation into the deaths of 46-year-old Bibaa Henry and 27-year-old Nicole Smallman in Fryent Country Park in Wembley in June 2020.

Two police officers charged with misconduct in connection with investigation into death of sisters in Wembley: ‘PC Deniz Jaffer, 47, and PC Jamie Lewis, 32, will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, 27 May 2021 for their first hearing. Both officers have each been charged with one count of misconduct in public office’

28 April 2021:

The CPS London Complex Casework unit authorised the charges following a review of a file of evidence from the Independent Office for Police Conduct.

The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against both defendants are active and that they have a right to a fair trial. It is extremely important there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings.

Addtional Notes:

  • PC Deniz Jaffer (DOB: 28/12/1973) is from Forest Gate Police Station in the Newham Borough
  • PC Jamie Lewis (DOB: 09/08/1988) is from Forest Gate Police Station in the Newham Borough

The function of the CPS is not to decide whether a person is guilty of a criminal offence, but to make fair, independent and objective assessments about whether it is appropriate to present charges for a criminal court to consider.

The CPS assessment of any case is not in any sense a finding of, or implication of, any guilt or criminal conduct. It is not a finding of fact, which can only be made by a court, but rather an assessment of what it might be possible to prove to a court, in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors.

  • Danyal Hussein, 18, (DOB: 10/05/2002) from Blackheath, has been charged with two counts of murder and possession of an offensive weapon, and faces trial later this year.

FEATURED UPDATE: ‘ Dennis Hastert alleged case of misconduct involved 2nd ex-student – sources ‘

FEATURED UPDATE:May.30: A man identified as Individual A in an indictment of former House Speaker Dennis Hastert was a student at the school where Hastert worked at the time the alleged “misconduct” against the individual took place, according to a source familiar with the case.

In addition, sources say, there is a second individual who was allegedly victimized in a similar way by Hastert when he was a student. According to sources familiar with the investigation, this person neither asked for nor received any money from Hastert, as Individual A is alleged to have done.

The alleged “misconduct” referenced in the indictment was of a sexual nature involving a male, and dated back to Hastert’s time as a high school wrestling coach and history teacher in Yorkville, Illinois, sources with knowledge of the case told ABC News.
