Evidence has been submitted showing that DS Abbs was in possession of private material (data), secured on this website, that was not public and was private and confidential. It was stored for a potential future article.
DS Abbs somehow ‘acquired‘ this data (that was secured) and DS Abbs submitted it to a court as evidence, evidence that was unlawfully acquired, and evidence that was used against an innocent person to their detriment.
The criminal allegation was reported to Norfolk police and today it was confirmed that DS Abbs was not questioned under caution, rather, he was given an opportunity to provide a ‘response’ to the criminal allegation against him.
Inspector Drummond was asked;
Dear Inspector Drummond,
Please can you tell me if Mr Abbs was questioned under caution over this criminal allegation, or was more of a ‘private affair’?
Inspector Drummond replied;
In response to your email and to keep you updated.
The officer was not questioned under caution, however I will be prepared to share the officer’s responses given to me. These form part of my findings to Professional Standards.
DS Abbs is married to Chief Inspector Aimie Abbs of Norfolk police and is the direct manager of Inspector Drummond who undertook the ‘investigation’ which does raise some suspicions of a ‘biased’ investigation.
This highlights that police put themselves above the legal process and in the face of criminal allegations, are not interviewed under caution, they are given full disclosure of the allegation and can give an informal response, a response that should be governed by a police caution.
So far, the outcome of the allegation made is not known, but the fact that the suspect, DS Abbs has never been formally interviewed and they are preparing to let us know his ‘response‘, so a thorough investigation and charges are very unlikely.
Very much how the Met Police turned a blind eye to Wayne Couzens and we know where that led.
