Undercover British police having secret sex?

Oct 25 2013, 9:46am CDT | by IANS

London, Oct 25 (IANS) Britain's senior most police officer has said he is unsure if undercover officers are still not getting involved in sexual relationships with partners unfamiliar with their real identities.

London, Oct 25 — Britain's senior most police officer has said he is unsure if undercover officers are still not getting involved in sexual relationships with partners unfamiliar with their real identities.

Eleven women are taking legal action against the Metropolitan Police over claims that they were duped into relationships in the past with undercover officers and suffered emotional trauma after discovering the deception, The Guardian reported.

On Thursday, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, the commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, said his force had guidelines that said police spies should not get involved in sexual relationships but that the rules could not prevent "human beings sometimes failing".

Under questioning from a London Assembly police and crime committee member, he said he could not be sure if officers had not continued to get involved in intimate relationships during his two years as commissioner.

"Our policy says it shouldn't, but can I be absolutely confident that it's never happened during my time as commissioner? I can't say that.

"What I can tell you is that we've got things in place via supervision and monitoring to make our best attempt to make it clear to our officers that it shouldn't, and if it does, to tell us.

"I'm confident of that, but I cannot be absolutely sure that there has not been the odd digression, or that there won't be in the future. But I do know that there's less chance of it now than there was 20 years ago."

Police chiefs and ministers have given contradictory answers about whether undercover officers were authorised to form sexual relationships with people they had been sent to spy on.

The Guardian has published evidence hinting that undercover officers routinely started sexual relationships with political campaigners during an infiltration campaign that began in 1968.

Thanks to last night's "No" vote in the Scottish referendum Britain has been spared the following: a run on the pound; the hasty exodus of Scotland's finance industry; the premature death of UKIP; the gloating of Alex Salmond; a Red-Wedding-style outbreak of backstabbing and bloodletting among Tories and Labour alike; a collapse in the markets; at least two years of procedural sclerosis in the British and Scottish parl ...

In a column for The Guardian, Trbovic attempts to explain the feeling of turning Ebola patients away. Trbovic worked for the Médecins Sans Frontières clinic in Monrovia, standing in front of an ad-hoc medical care tent for three day ...
