REUTERS/Henry NichollsLondon's police corruptly concealed failings in the investigation of the 1987 murder of private investigator Daniel Morgan, an 8-year inquiry into the handling of the case has found.
While the report by an independent panel found no fresh evidence of police involvement in the murder itself, chair of the panel, Nuala O'Loan, was scathing about how the case had been handled.
"We believe that concealing or denying failings, for the sake of an organization's public image is dishonesty, on the part of the organisation, for reputational benefit.
"Daniel Morgan deserved far far better than this, as did his family," Patel told lawmakers.
