Dear Northumbria Police,

Winton 'Cover up' Keenen sent Martin McGartland the following email on 16 December 2014. Apart from the email showing that Winton tells sooooooooooo many lies (and is KingPin in corruption in Martin McGartland cases .... he claims; 'Given that a number of your complaints relate to matters associated with the attempted murder upon you I will ensure that the Terms of Reference for the review activity include objectives that will best achieve answers to your questions/queries.' And; ' I really do think this will take matters forward massively Marty....'

Total lies ... all Winton Keenen (and his Corrupt/Bent officers, force) have done is Lie, Lie and Lie even more and cover up criminal conspiracy and corruption. I want to place on the record that... almost 4 years has now past since and I have still never been given answers to my questions (only Winton Keenen, NP and Team Winton Lies, Cover Up and Spin). Nor have I had any of my queries. Moreover, far from 'take matters forward massively..' Winton Keenen, Team Winton (the Bents and corrupt Cops - protecting IRA killers and terrorists from arrest... protecting themselves, NP and other Bent cops involved in the most serious corruption...) have turned by the clock by many years. They have made matters a great deal worse than they already were.

THE EMAIL:
From: <winton**************@northumbria.pnn.police.uk>
Date: 16 December 2014 at 16:44
Subject: Re: Complaint against Dave Anderson [NOT PROTECTIVELY MARKED]
To: Marty McGartland <marty************@gmail.com>

Good morning Marty,

I have determined the need to commission a formal review of the attempted murder against you as I feel that this is the best way to deal with the questions that you have asked about the investigation itself and additionally many of those matters about which you have made formal complaints.

I recognise that in your correspondence you have yourself requested this and that you have additionally asked that it be conducted by an 'outside' body.

Having considered the matter carefully I am of the genuinely held belief that the best way to progress, in order to ensure vigour and timeliness, is for me to appoint an independent SIO from Northumbria to conduct the review.

As such I have decided to appoint my most experienced Detective Superintendent to this role and will rearrange his duties in order that he has the time and flexibility required to conduct the review in an effective and efficient manner.

Given that a number of your complaints relate to matters associated with the attempted murder upon you I will ensure that the Terms of Reference for the review activity include objectives that will best achieve answers to your questions/queries.

In this regard I am having a more formal letter worked up by Professional Standards Department setting out the intentions outlined above.

I do think that it would be useful for you to meet personally with the appointed SIO in order that you can achieve your own reassurance as to the robust, independent manner in which he will carry out his enquiries. I would therefore ask you to consider allowing me to arrange this at a mutually convenient and safe location for you.

I really do think this will take matters forward massively Marty and would actively encourage you to engage with us so that we can resolve matters to your satisfaction.

With best regards,

Winton
ENDS

Under the Freedom of Information I am requesting that Winton Keenen disclose those Terms of Reference to me (as the victim) either on here or to my personal email address. Winton Keenen must stop lying, covering up, protecting the IRA, protecting IRA terrorists from arrest ... He and his corrupt / Bent cabal of officers have deliberately botched my attempted murder investigation. He, Team Winton, NP and Special Branch have caused that much damage that I suspect that charges that could have been brought (but never were due to above) will no longer be possible.

Winton Keenen, in recent months, has been in the news claiming that he wants NP to be more open with the public......... etc. Sweet Lord. Winton keenen needs to be open in the Martin McGartland case and disclose the Terms of Reference without delay.

Winton Keenen has also been lying to IPCC regards my case. This has been covered up by his force (and him) as well as Vera 'Turn a blind-eye' Baird while dealing with my cases...

Yours faithfully,

Martin McGartland

Dear Northumbria Police,

- - - - FOR YOUR INFORMATION - - - -

The following is Martin McGartland;s email to Winton Keenen which he ignored, continues to cover up the Roger Ford ToR. For the record Roger Ford (who was working under Winton Keenen's direction and control) Did NOT ever contact me at all (nor did any other NP officers regards ToR - Another Winton Keenen Lie)....

Dear Winton,

Each time you write to me, you continually include comments which at first sight appear to be showing a real desire to (once and for all) deal with all of the outstanding issues that I have been in dispute with NP about since my 1999 shooting. However, on every occasion they have turned out to be weasel words and quite frankly, and I make no apology for this, you are consciously lying to me, stringing me along and kicking my case further and further into the long grass. Your conduct is in no way transparent, certainly not independent and to be honest, your causing me a great deal of unnecessary stress and delay.

Your attempt to pass my case to yet another NP senior officer is not surprising but I say it is being done by you to try to distance yourself from my case. I will not allow that to happen. I will be mounting a public campaign in the very near future, directly against you and your Chief Constable, Steve Ashman, as a result of the protecting of IRA terrorists and the IRA in my case and both you're turning a blind eye to corruption and cover up in my overall cases.

One such lie on your part was from your 26 January 2015 email in which you wrote,

'I will be tasking Superintendent Ford to draw up terms of reference for the review and will have contact established by him with you in order that he can outline these to you once agreed.'

Not only was I not shown terms of reference but I had absolutely no input into those.

I would be grateful if you could now email me a copy of those terms of reference and stop treating me like a third class citizen (victim).

You also stated in that same email that,

'Given that many of the matters you have raised as complaints relate directly to the investigation into the awful attack upon you all those years ago I expect the findings of the review to also provide information that will assist in providing answers to the questions you have raised through the complaints process.'

That review was concluded months ago and you and many others (no doubt your new found friends in MI5) have been drooling over it since then.

I am requesting that you immediately write to me directly without any further delay, obstructing, excuses, passing the buck to other junior members of staff below you and supply me with the information that you promised me over 8 months ago.

This is why I cannot trust a word that you nor any other NP officer say because of the blatant lies and more lies at every stage. You should be ashamed of yourself. I would like that information supplied to me by email from you as quickly as possible. You promised, you gave me your word and now you are once again taking me for an absolute fool.

I would remind you that I am the victim of a 16 year old attempted murder in which I am clear that you, Steve Ashman and a number of other corrupt officers have been obstructing the investigation and have been covering up to protect terrorists and the IRA, shame on all of you, yous are a disgrace and in my view are not fit to hold public office.

You also deliberately lied about my being given an apology and only wrote an apology to me after you were aware that I had made a complaint against you. That complaint will undoubtedly be upheld because it has been proven that I had never been given an apology.

- - - - [NOT TO READER: THAT COMPLAINT AS WITH ALL OTHERS THAT I MADE AGAINST MR KEENEN WE NEVER INVESTIGATED (WE BOTCHED) BY HIS PSD TO PROTECT HIM FROM ANY TYPE OF INVESTIGATIONS. ALL OF THE EVIDENCE WAS IGNORED BY CORRUPT PSD, NP) - -- -

Con't

I wrote to you and your PSD during the past year or more confirming I had never received an apology but you deliberately ignored this because I say it did not square with the lies that you and your PSD told IPCC staff - that I had received an apology. You and your PSD deliberately ignored my correspondence regarding my not having an apology.

You will be aware that I wrote back to you stating that I would not be accepting the apology and I continue to await your reply regarding same. I would ask that you deal with this immediately, in particular, the issue concerning letter of apology from Richard Heron to me, letter to PCC and also the apology being made to me publicly (wording to be agreed between us).

In your 10 August 2015 email to me, you attempted to suggest that it was your 'genuinely held belief that an apology had been given' to me. This is absolutely outrageous and you could not possibly claim this to be the case when you will have been aware that I had complained to the IPCC about the lie that such an apology had been given and that I had done so well over a year ago. In fact, you will be well aware that the IPCC contacted your legal department directly and asked them to search for the phantom apology and supply them with a copy of it.

Suffice to say, the legal department will not have even bothered to look for such an apology because they knew that none existed, it was an engineered, conscious decision taken by the most senior chief officers in your force, to try to discredit me and cause me further damage and stress and inconvenience. No different to the same engineered, monstrous lies that they told in June 1999 (cooked up by your chief officers and Home Office) where they smeared me by linking me and my shooting to feuding drugs gangs and criminals and stating that my shooting had absolutely nothing to do with the IRA.

What concerns me regarding the smearing of me back in 1999 is that you as T-DCC of NP are in one hand now admitting (thanks to my persistence) that NP did lie and did smear me, in effect your confirming that they deliberately lied and invented monstrous smears and slur against me but at the same time, it beggars belief that you are content to do absolutely nothing about those behind such serious criminal activity. I am clear that you are acting corruptly by your inaction's and or your actions in this matter. I would take this opportunity to ask you as T/DCC of NP to write to me and let me know what you are going to do about those individuals, if anything? (NOTE TO READER: HE DID NOTHING, NO RELY ... CORRUPT TO THE CORE )

You also said in your 10 August 2015 email that,

'... will seek to make further contact when I have viewed the outcome of Supt Ford's review - which, I expect will be very soon.'

(NOTE TO READER: HE NEVER DID - HE COVERED UP THE ROGER FORD REPORT, FAILED TO ACT ON THE 36 RECOMMENDATIONS. AND HAS REFUSED TO SHARE THE REPORT, FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS WITH ME AS THE VICTIM . WHY? BECAUSE ROGER FORD FLAGGED UP VERY SERIOUS CORRUPTION AS WELL AS CRIMINAL OFFENCES BY NP OFFICERS. A LARGE SCALE COVER UP AND A CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY.... )

I am requesting that you keep to your word and that you deal with me directly rather than passing the case around to other individuals. I have already told you that I have absolutely zero faith or trust in any officer employed by NP and you continue to, in my view, deliberately fuel the already extremely volatile relationship between myself and NP by chopping and changing and passing my case to different individuals.

Finally, I note in your most recent email of today that you have made no reference at all about your previous comments concerning 'separate body take over the investigation'. You also stated in your 10 August 2015 email 'I will use his findings to ascertain the best way forward and will actively consider your continuing desire for us to request a separate body take over the investigation.'

I would like you to confirm to me in writing if you will now be requesting that my case be investigated by an independent third party. I would remind you that I have absolutely no confidence in N and any attempt by you or NP to cling on to my case, particularly when there has never been any proper periodic or cold case reviews over the years, will, so far as I am concerned, be further evidence of your concealing, covering up and protecting wrongdoing, failures by your colleagues and NP and covering up the previous 16 year cover up into my case.

I have a question I would like you to answer and it is a simple question; Did Roger Ford, NP review, uncover any evidence or intelligence to show that IRA members (official or unofficial) or the IRA were involved in my attempted murder? (NOTE TO READER: WINTON KEENEN HAS NEVER ANSWERED THAT SIMPLE QUESTION. THAT IS BECAUSE HE, HIS CORRUPT FORCE HAVE BEEN PROTECTING IRA TERRORISTS, KILLERS AS WELL AS THE TERRORISTS WHO TRIED TO MURDER MARTIN MCGARTLAND)

The more you continue to refuse to answer the most basic and simple questions to me as the victim in this case, the more I will be absolutely certain that you are up to your eyeballs in the corruption, the cover up, the protecting of IRA and IRA terrorists in my case. I hope you will answer the question.

In the meantime, I would be obliged if you would supply me with copy of terms of reference, full details of findings of the review and preferably a copy of Roger Ford's report and his findings. You need to be truthful, transparent and independent if you expect me to trust or respect you. What I see is a T/DCC who has travelled along the ladder extremely quickly and who is desperate for higher office and in my view, will do anything and everything to protect colleagues and NP, even where those individuals have broken the law and have breached the rules of honesty and integrity and much more (as I maintain you have done in your dealings with me).

I will end by saying that I am livid, so angry by your recent email (and your continuing to ignore my outstanding emails) as well as your blatant attempt to deliberately cause me further unnecessary stress, inconvenience by your passing my case to yet another officer and failing to deal with the issues you promised you personally would do in previous emails to me. Far from your recent comments about trying to build trust or a better relationship between NP and me, you are causing further damage, mistrust, extreme frustration and you are treating me as the victim in this case like a third class citizen.

I hope you will now write to me and deal with all of the matters raised in this email and supply me with all the information concerning the review as well as answers to all of the questions I have been asking and which you promised would be answered in the findings of the review. I am bound to ask the burning question, what has been the purpose of the 'review'. The simple answer is it was designed and engineered to assist NP and your colleagues, nothing more than internal housekeeping to tidy up shabby work and inaction's by your colleagues in the past.

I look forward to your immediate reply

Marty

Dear Marty,

The review of the on-going investigation into the attempt on your life, as carried out by Detective Superintendent Roger Ford, has been passed to the Head of Northumbria Police Crime Department (D/Ch.Supt Walker) for his consideration and recommendation as to the best way to progress matters; I have ensured he is fully aware of the concerns you have raised previously regarding the investigation of your case.

I have asked Ch/Supt Walker to make contact with you in order that we can find the best way to engage with you and share relevant information between ourselves and you as the victim in the case.

Notwithstanding the issues you have raised, that are currently being dealt with by the Professional Standards Department, I believe it is important we continue to seek to have contact with you regarding the on-going investigation into the attempt on your life in 1999 and would urge you to engage with Ch/Supt Walker when he makes contact.

I have forwarded your most recent emails to him so they can be considered appropriately.

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.”

Page link Here; http://www.apccs.police.uk/latest-news/a...

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.
