Dear Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary for Scotland,

The Audit Scotland Annual Audit report 2011-12 states ".....we note

governance arrangements relating to the post of Assistant Chief

The same report later states "We understand that Her Majesty's
Inspector of Constabulary for Scotland has recently launched an
investigation into the Board's handling of the case. We will
continue to monitor progress in this area with a view to
considering the effective use of public monies"

Could I please have a copy of the terms of reference for that
investigation together with a copy of the report

By the report I mean the final report which according to your own documentation was due to be submitted by 10th May 2013 to include all appendices to said report

Yours faithfully,

Derek Penman "Lost" it already? Tut, Tut... Not even a year in the job. Look in your "House Keeping" cupboard where you stuck all the CSP complaints & a "missing" report from 2009 (must be like the Narnia Wardrobe in there! Gordon's retired and Gary's "off"so maybe they can help you? Gary was there as part of an IT " Management Team" for a while, maybe he could help you "retrieve" it?). Good luck with that, eh?

The full information requested (and granted by the Commissioner) was NOT provided, thus the review.

I'm sure that the fact HMIC Inspector of constabulary, Mr Derek Penman, a man who personally benefitted from Mr Mauger's illegal suspension and removal -see links below - despite having complaints against him and not being Counter Terrorism trained as is a requirement for ALL Executive Police Officer roles . And this was indeed an illegal suspension (as stated in the readable parts of the report s36.2 "Not Formally Suspended" - which is a definative is it not? You're either suspended or not. How can you "informally" be suspended? Without due process, procedure and without paperwork or there being no 3 monthly requests to the Justice Secretary to authorise such suspensions as happened here for a 2 year period - I am intrigued! And even more intrigued as his lack of intervention given all of the negative publicity and costs on the finite funds of the policing budget) and the stated detailed "failures" of the Falkirk Council & Central Scotland Police Board on the findings of the investigation (which Mr Penman was part of, as "Acting" Chief Constable, so pretty unethical all round as he's now HMICS, funny when there were "outstanding" complaints against him. See attached) are not coincidental.

This information would also help Mr Mauger fight a fair case, ongoing this week. Where an attempt is being made at an "enforced" retiral for ACC Mauger (because of a friendship with a "reformed" criminal of many years standing), yet, no action is being taken against those mentioned here critically for failing (the number of complaints made on P53 is also indicative of an even greater structure of failure which surely merits investigation and legal suspensions of those "guilty" of such cost causing failures - nearly £2million in this case alone! - you would have thought? No?) Although, surely, that would not be the reason for witholding it, would it?

Also makes you wonder how the HMI got the job in the first place - see below...
