6. malicious smearing and dirty tricks campaign, harassment and intimidation, direct discrimination by NP / NP officers against Martin McGartland ...

7. Non-disclosure of information / data and documents (for reasons of cover up and embarrassment on part of NP) relating to above . And concerning Martin McGartland, his cases

8. deliberate botching / failedof Northumbria police investigations (including smear and attempted murder cases) to protect suspects aw well as others

9. NP officers lying to Martin McGartland as the victim of a crime, to IPCC, IOPC (including Commissioners), the CPS, other police officers / forces, ICO, press, public and others
10. the interference with witnesses both relating to smearing of Martin McGartland by NP and those who were regarding as important in his attempted murder (who met, seen and or come into contact with) those involved in his attempted murder

11 deliberately botching DNA as well as other compelling evidence in the Martin McGartland attempted murder (and smearing) case/s

12 criminal cover up and conspiracy since 17 June 1999 between Northumbria Police special branch, other officers, Mi5, Home Office (including Blair Government at time) and the serious corruption in the Martin McGartland cases to protect IRA, the IRA terrorists who tried to murder Martin McGartland (of which that cover up, the conspiracy and corruption continues to this very day including under the leadership of C/Con Winton Keenen and Team Winton)

13. The major cover up of the major cover ups ... all those who have been party to and involved in those cover up during the past 19 years

14. deliberately botching of complaints by Martin McGartland and the investigations (due to dishonest / corrupt officers and corruption) to protect the force and also other corrupt officers (past and present) involved in in the above

15. false and deliberate claims that Martin McGartland had made complaints maliciously so that dishonest (and totally circumvented) decisions could, and were, by the corrupt PSD.
The result of which was that those complaints against NP / NP officers (including Winton Keenen, past and present SIO's, SB, heads of PSD ...) were never recorded, never investigated. And each / ever complaint was brushed under the carpet and covered up (as well as the evidence relating to them).

This was also done for the above reasons. NP (its corrupt officers and PSD) did same with large number of dishonest and circumvented disapplications, referrals etc that they made to IPCC and later IOPC in which they very deliberately omitted (covered up and concealed) compelling evidence and information that they did not (but which there were required to) send / disclose to IPCC and or IOPC concerning the Martin McGartland cases.

Etc or for any other reasons. I do not require names of those officers. I do require;

A. Rank/s of all/any officers
B. Reasons, what action has being taken (and or has been)
C. Dates regards above as well as A and B ...
D. How many - if any - have been reported to CPS or IPCC, IOPC.

I would like this information to cover the past 5 years.

Yours faithfully,

Martin McGartland

It is also very relevant to place on record Vera Baird's resent public comments concerning complaints against the police, i.e. 'APCC’S RESPONSE TO THE INDEPENDENT OFFICE FOR POLICE CONDUCT’S COMPLAINTS REPORT' Which includes; APCC Deputy Lead for Transparency and Integrity, Dame Vera Baird QC PCC said:

“There is a simple concept when dealing with complaints, make sure they are dealt with efficiently, thoroughly and fairly – if the police have got it wrong, don’t be afraid to say so. Here in Northumbria, our complaints triage team have been delivering this ethos since 2014 – and it’s now part of the Governments new national model, so it’s proved to work. It’s about restoring the complainant’s faith in the service that they are complaining about.

“The IOPC make a number of valid points, but they need to recognise that change is happening and PCCs are leading this. Going forward, I want to see PCCs challenge their forces when bureaucracy and legal jargon gets in the way of putting the public first, in Northumbria we keep the public we serve at the heart of everything we do. “The IOPC are right when they say lessons need to be learnt from complaints – that’s the only way forces can get better. Every complaint should offer a challenge of how to improve further. Under the leadership of Mike Lockwood, I am confident that we will see a changed culture at the IOPC which will also be reflected in forces across England and Wales.”

I have made a number of serious complaints to Vera Baird over the years which relate to very serious corruption, failures in my attempted murder investigation, serious failures regards me as victim, NP smear / dirty tricks campaign against me (and the ongoing 19 year cover up of it), NP protecting suspects from arrests as well as IRA terrorists who tried to murder me, obstruction of the investigations Etc

Vera Baird (as well as others acting on her behalf) have failed at every stage to properly record or investigate those complaints. This, I am clear, was to protect her corrupt force, officers who I complained about. All complaints were Whitewashed and covered up in one way or another by Vera Baird and Co. She also has very deliberately circumvented, when she was well aware my complaints were not suitable, local resolution (LR) so that no proper investigations (Again, I say, for above reasons) were ever carried out.

Vera Baird is much more aware than most that LR is not suitable - as with my complaints - (and as the IPCC/IOPC have made clear in one of their upheld latest decisions in my case against her) for complaints, if proven, could potentially lead to disciplinary proceedings. In their 13 September 2018 decision (in which they upheld my appeal against OPCC / PCC Baird) the IOPC / IPCC also stated; 'As far as I can be seen from the background papers , the OPCC has not made any enquiries or conducted any scoping exercise to ascertain whether there is any merit in your allegations that Mr Ashman was aware of the findings of the report and ignored them, nor any attempt made to ascertain how they can be 'resolved'. And the IPCC /IOPC also stated; 'Furthermore, importantly, there is no indication that OPCC has attempted to engage with you to take part in the local resolution process. Plus, no action plan on how to conduct the local resolution has been agreed between you. These are both essential actions expected of local resolution process, yet neither have been conducted.'

Vera Baird above public and following comments; “There is a simple concept when dealing with complaints, make sure they are dealt with efficiently, thoroughly and fairly.' Are pure Poppycock - not worth the paper they are written on so far as the way so, her office has deal with my complaints over the years. Has she dealt with my complaints 'efficiently' ? Absolutely Not. 'Thoroughly'? Absolutely Not. And not at all. 'Fairly.'? All she (others acting on her behalf) has done with my complaints is Cover Up, Whitewash and protect her corrupt force, the corrupt officers I complained about. And she (they) have also ignored evidence (including independent evidence) which supported my complaints.
