Metropolitan Police offer me £10,000 in compensation, but they don't want anyone to know about it.

Good news. The tide is turning.

The Metropolitan Police have offered me £10,000 in compensation. But they want to keep it confidential. [Scroll down to see their letter].

I have told them that their attempts to gag me are unacceptable and any settlement needs to be widely publicised. The offer of compensation is to do with the very serious misconduct of Detective Inspector Julian King and Detective Constable Phil Dial in which they:

- Both refused to watch CCTV evidence I provided them with, and never looked at text messages that showed Eleanor de Freitas had lied.

- Both knew that Eleanor de Freitas had a history of making false rape complaints, but let her get away with it.

- I am also suing for breaches of the data protection act in which the police released confidential information to 3rd parties without my consent.

I have told the police that if they want to settle, then there can't be confidentiality... or we'll go to trial where the full details of the misconduct will be aired in court and widely reported in the press.

They have no choice, the full details will be coming out one way or another. And quite rightly. It's important people know the truth about this case. The police are the bad guys who are guilty of misconduct and that's a fact.

The thing I'm quite chuffed about is that I don't have any lawyers at the moment because I've run out of money. I am actually suing the police as a litigant in person and the police are already sending me offers to settle, just 3 months after I issued my claim. That's because I've got rock solid evidence.

Last year, the Daily Mail briefly reported the Police Misconduct. Click here to see the article. The officers are still under investigation by the IPCC and are facing a misconduct hearing at some point in the future. The outcome of that investigation is not yet known and that procedure is separate from my case against the police. Both officers were unavailable for comment, but have previously denied the allegations made against them and continue to do so.

As well as receiving compensation from the police, it is possible that the officers will face disciplinary action if they are found guilty.

Feeling good. Things are moving in the right direction.


  1. Glad to hear this, Alexander. Have the police now reclassified the crime from rape to false accusation?

  2. I have recently settled a libel claim against the police. I brought the claim myself without a lawyer. Without a lawyer, I got the police to the point where they wanted to settle. However, there was an unwillingness on the part of the police to admit wrong-doing publicly.

    In this situation, I was able to find a solicitor who would take over my case for me an a no-win-no-fee basis, solely for the purposes of negotiating a more acceptable settlement - more clear exoneraton for me, and more money.

    You can read my story here:

    The police are not "the law"

    I do not think you have necessarily done the best thing tactically, by publishing on the internet a Part 36 offer to settle that ought not even to be shown to the court, because it is "without prejudice save as to costs".

    You are welcome to contact me.

  3. Well done Alexander. You are doing a great service to all victims of false accusations. The behaviour of the police in this has been disgraceful and I think that the officers involved should lose their jobs and face heavy fines at the very least. Only then will they and others realize that they cannot abuse their power and get away with it.
    I don't buy this rubbish about Eleanor de Freitas being a 'vulnerable young woman with mental health issues'. Her actions were those of a sociopath or malignant narcissist, hell-bent on taking revenge on someone who had spurned her.

  4. I wish you well in what is a hard road

  5. Well done, Alexander, and thank you for helping to rid us of the pernicious and damaging culture of "believe the accuser" (often stated as 'believe the victim').
