Dear Chief Constable Winton Keenen ,
It is my understanding that Chief Constable Jon Boutcher and ACC Fullwood (so they tell me) have been asking you - since October last year, 2018) to disclose a copy of their REDACTED Review Report and findings to Martin McGartland. That review, the report, relates to your forces BOTCHED (due to Northumbria Police Corruption) 'investigation' into the attempted murder of Martin McGartland.
Chief Constable Jon Boutcher supplied you with two copies of his findings, One copy was an unredacted report of his / review teams findings. The other copy - the redacted copy - was redacted by him, his review team so that it could be disclosed to Martin McGartland.
I also understand that since October 2018, and during past 9 months, CC Jon Boutcher has contacted, written to you a number of times making requests that you disclose a copy of that (his) redacted report to Martin McGartland. And that he has even held meeting/s with you regarding same. ACC Paul Fullwood has also been making same requests, including to you/your office directly since October last year.
In fact, Chief Constable Jon Boutcher, in one of his report recommendations, included; "Finally, Northumbria Police should consider releasing a suitably redacted version of the review report to Mr McGartland. The redactions should be applicable only to issues of sensitive intelligence or data protection or where disclosure would be potentially detrimental to any future judicial process."
"NP should consider providing Mr McGartland with a copy of the BCHMCU review report including relevant appendices. By doing so they will be able to demonstrate openness and transparency and willingness to re-establish a working relationship with Mr McGartland. In addition NP will be complying with the 'Ministry of justice Codes of Practice for Victims of Crime 2015' In respect of Mr McGartland, a victim of a serious crime, being kept informed about the progress of his case. "
Winton Keenen (you) have been the kingpin in the obstructing the covering up, the lies, the failures and corruption in the Martin McGartland case for many years. You have been the controlling mind and decision maker when it concerns the obstruction and cover up of not only the Jon Boutcher review report and findings, BUT also the same when it concerns the Roger Ford review report and findings which you have also covered up (to protect yourself as well as other corrupt officers - past and present - and your force).
You are also obstructing the investigation into the Martin McGartland unsolved attempted murder (which has been marred in the most serious corruption - which is a main reason why it remains unsolved) and you, as well as other officers acting under your direction and control are failing to act on recommendations from both reports. You should be investigated by independent third party given your heads of your corrupt PSD have protected you from investigation in Martin McGartland cases during the previous 10 years when they should have investigated you and taken appropriate action against you.
You are also the sole reason for the total absence of openness, transparency and total failure towards Martin McGartland as the victim of a 20 year old unsolved attempted murder, In fact, you, as well as other officers acting under your direction and control have subjected Martin McGartland to the most despicable and evil treatment possible by your failures, your abuses of power and authority and your continued contempt towards Martin McGartland as a victim. In fact, it is fair to say that you and they and your corrupt force have treated him as if he is a criminal and as if he is a third class citizen without any rights whatsoever,
Let me be very clear, and I have more than justified grounds and reasons for making this very clear statement (while at the hands of your treatment and failings). You, Mr Keenen, are not fit to hold the office of Chief Constable and if not for your corrupt force and your corrupt PSD, I am in no doubt you would have been held to account regards Martin McGartland, his cases long before now if you were not being protected from investigation.
You, in my eyes, are a total disgrace, a coward as well as a total hypocrite and you should be ashamed of yourself. I will continue to expose you for what you are (as well as your force) and I will not waiver nor will I rest until I get the truth and nothing but as well as the justice that you and your other corrupt colleagues (past and present) are denying Martin McGartland and obstructing and have been as well as your force for at least the previous 20 years.
In addition, you and your cronies, as well as your force, have also covered up, have lied (including you personally) to the IOPC/IPCC about Martin McGartland and your forces smearing of him and you, NP and your corrupt PSD botched the investigation into the smearing of him and your force have deliberately destroyed evidence or at the very least hidden it just to protect themselves and other bent officers and staff who smeared him. That includes compelling and indisputable evidence that NP smeared him, first accounts and also detailed statements of press officers, as well as other officers and staff who were on duty on the day of his smearing / my shooting. All of which have been very conveniently lost. And yet you and no one else is remotely interested in investigating how such important documents (as well as the personal data of those involved) has - according to your corrupt force and PSD - disappeared into this air.
NP liars, no one believes those lies other than the corrupt officers who concocted them. Any other Chief Constable in the country would have ordered a full scale, an independent investigation into such serious issues but not CC Winton Keenen. Why? the answer is so simple, because of your direct involvement in the Martin McGartland cases since as early as 2006 and right up until the present day.
Under FOIA, I would like to ask you directly the following:
1. Why are you continuing to block the release of the redacted Boutcher review report and why are you refusing to disclose that redacted report (which CC Boutcher, his review team redacted so that it could be disclosed to Martin McGartland)?
2. Why are you failing to act in an open and transparent way when it concerns Martin McGartland case, including but not limited to your total failure and refusal to comply (or even pay lip service) with the 'Ministry of justice Codes of Practice for Victims of Crime 2015', particularly where it concerns the Martin McGartland case?
3. Why are you continuing to obstruct the disclosure of the Roger Ford review report and findings to Martin McGartland (which related to his attempted murder) despite that report being handed directly to you while DCC and after 4 years of constant requests by Martin McGartland to you to disclose that report, those findings and recommendations?
I suspect that you will continue with the conspiracy of silence and that you will once again ignore the serious issue concerning the Martin McGartland case. That being the reason why the relationship between NP and Martin McGartland has deteriorated so detrimentally since you became ACC, DCC and now CC of Northumbria. You have been instrumental in same and are making matters worse by your behaviour (as well as the above).
4. Would you be prepared to meet with Martin McGartland and to look him in the eye concerning above issues? And at a time of your convenience and at a location of your choice.
