The IPCC looked at the Met's hiring of Neil Wallis as well as then Assistant Commissioner John Yates' "alleged involvement in securing a job with the MPS for Wallis' daughter".
In these investigations, at the heart of the issues affecting public confidence was the question of whether two separate arrangements – both involving a form of employment connected to Neil Wallis – were either corruptly entered into or otherwise breached MPS policies and procedures.
In neither case did we find evidence of corruption, but in both cases we found that policies were breached, and in the case of the former Director of Public Affairs, Dick Fedorcio, that there was a case to answer in relation to misconduct.
