Operations Triassic & Thatcham

sarah laws made this Freedom of Information request to West Yorkshire Police

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

West Yorkshire Police did not have the information requested.

Dear West Yorkshire Police,

I have been researching collapsed trials. In the papers relating to
operation Triassic , there is mention of joint investigation between the Police and the Insurance Fraud Bureau.

The involvement of a private partisan body, the Insurance Fraud
bureau, in the prosecution of this case could be deemed to have
been prejudicial to the case. The Judge at Southwark Crown Court
allegedly described the prosecution as 'scandalous'. The case was
thrown out.

Research shows that West Yorkshire Police are working jointly with the IFB in operation 'Thatcham'

What risk assessments have you performed of such involvement?

Will you share these risk assessments with the public?

Have you been subject to any complaints consequent to your
involvement in activities with the Insurance Fraud Bureau?

The IFB website refers to a strategy to disrupt 'professional facilitators' ?
What is your involvement in, and understanding of,
this strategy?
This strategy seems to ignore the need to prove dishonesty or criminal intent, is this correct?

Have you arrested, cautioned or charged any 'professional facilitators' such as solicitors, barristers, doctors, nurses or physiotherapists, at the behest of the IFB?

How much money has or is the IFB paying West yorkshire police for conducting operation Thatcham?

How many police officers have been transferred from routine duties in order to conduct operation Thatcham for the IFB?

Yours faithfully,

sarah laws

Dear West Yorkshire Police,

by complaints, i would mean this to refer to any concerns raised by any member of the public, any police, legal or medical professional, in relation to any aspect of these operations initiated by the IFB or at the request of the IFB or on receiving payment from the IFB. Such concerns could be in writing, verbal or by electronic communication.

By risk assessment i would mean this to refer to a process whereby the police would have confirmed the authenticity and legal standing of the IFB.
Sought confirmation from a higher authority e.g the CPS / DPP / Parliament, on the acceptibility of receiving payments from the IFB. Evaluated the risk to the reputation of the police were a case which had been initiated and funded by the IFB, to later prove to be mistaken/illegal/invalid or, as the honourable judge is reported to have said at Southwark Crown Court, 'scandalous'.
Evaluated the risk to the public purse/tax payer of having to pay compensation where an IFB initiated case is struck out or deemed invalid. (have the police , in the alternative, made an agreement with the IFB that were a case to fail or lead to compensation claims for damages, then the IFB would indemnify the police actions, in order to protect the public purse/taxpayer.)

Yours faithfully,

sarah laws
