Andrew Mitchell, who has made a former complaint against Scotland Yard over the alleged leaking of its “Plebgate” report, has strongly criticised the Met’s handling of the situation.
In a letter to IPCC deputy chairman Deborah Glass, he wrote:
We are deeply dismayed that the Metropolitan Police appear to have leaked part of their Report prepared for the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) to certain members of the Press and spun it to the advantage of the Police officers involved.
This was an Enquiry into a dishonest and illicit attempt to blacken my name and destroy my career. It would appear that this police enquiry continues precisely that process.
