Then they claimed they paid Martin McGartland a £10,000.00 'Termination Grant', they did not. The shortfall at this point stands at £50,000.00.

They paid £399.88 it total, the shortfall was £1,600.12. This is proof that you can't trust the police. Where has the £51,600.12 gone, who has stolen Martin McGartland's money?”

National Security? The Cops in Northern Ireland stole over £51,000.00 of my money and now they are claiming 'National Security' so that they can cover it up.

You could not make this stuff up. The ICO (on orders of MI5 and Home Office) will fix it so that the cops will get away with this too. I believe I'm not the only person the cops and security service have done this too. I'm sure money has been stolen from others.

This only confirms what I have been saying all along, that the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI)
is corrupt to the core.

Over £51,000.00 stolen, no investigation/s and the FOI, DPA team within PSNI are under orders (from above) to Lie, conceal and cover-up (which they are experts at).

Dear Police Service of Northern Ireland,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Police Service of Northern Ireland's handling of my FOI request 'Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) and the stolen £51,600.12 from Martin McGartland’s resettlement package'.

I am requesting an internal review of this case. I am doing so on the grounds that the PSNI, the police, can not possibly claim that the theft of over £50,000.00 (By police officers from RUC) from Martin McGartland's resettlement package can possibly be connected to National Security.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Yours faithfully,

Jeff Hayward

They (PSNI) can and they will get away with it, the ICO (on the orders of Home Office and MI5) will make sure of that.

"Ask The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) how to steal I(I did say steal) over £50,000.00 (and get away with it). Its easy just claim National Security, http://www.flickr.com/photos/80936887@N0... as the PSNI have done, see above.

You could not make this stuff up, This is Total Corruption at the very Top of the PSNI.
