Loan Charge Suicides and HMRC referrals

We're waiting for Stephen Campbell to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Independent Office for Police Conduct,

This relates specifically to the continuing suicides linked directly to HMRC action on 2019 Loan Charge and the subsequent referrals by HMRC to IOPC of ALL of these cases.

Under The Revenue and Customs (Complaints and Misconduct) Regulations 2010 there is specific mention re IOPC obligations in respect of investigating DSIs including the following :

(5) The requirements of this paragraph are that—

(a)at or before the time of the death or serious injury the person had contact (of whatever kind, and whether direct or indirect) with an officer who was acting in the execution of duties, and
(b)there is an indication that the contact may have caused (whether directly or indirectly) or contributed to the death or serious injury.

Both of these apply to Loan Charge suicide victims in terms of HMRCs written and verbal interaction with victims

1. Please supply documentation and EMail correspondence between IOPC and HMRC that resulted in decision that all previous decisions to treat loan charge suicides as "local investigations"

2. In response to a previous FOIA request you stated:

"Having spoken to HMRC they have already acknowledged potential learning following
this referral …I therefore have confidence that HMRC will treat this investigation with
due seriousness. HMRC have also agreed to send the IOPC the final report for review
and so we will retain some oversight in any case"

Given that another vulnerable individual has taken their own life this week, can I ask that you share the final report that HMRC promised ?

3. Please provide documentation and EMails that relate specifically to the scope of the HMRC investigation

4. Please provide ALL correspondence between HMRC and IOPC for ALL suicide referrals that have now taken place and that relate specifically to loan charge victims

Yours faithfully,

Stephen Campbell
