Metropolitan Police pay me £10,000 in general damages.

The Metropolitan Police have paid me £10,000 in compensation [see consent order below] with regards to 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.

- Detective Inspector King also breached the data protection act releasing my confidential information  to the de Freitas family without my consent.

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.
