Ian Blair: letter to silence inquiry

ITN report

Obtained by ITV News, the letter to the Independent Police Complaints Commission from Sir Ian tries to invoke special privileges to delay the investigation.

On the day the Brazilian electrician was shot dead by police, Sir Ian wrote to Home Office Permanent Secretary Sir John Gieve saying he should be able to suspend as he saw fit a legal requirement to give material to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

Sir Ian said revealing information to external investigators, as he was required to do under section 17 of the Police Reform Act, could compromise police tactics and intelligence sources and put lives at risk.

The existence of Sir Ian's letter, in which he said he had decided the IPCC should not be allowed to investigate the shooting, emerged six weeks ago but it was published in full by the Home Office today following a request under the Freedom of Information Act.

The letter was written hours after Mr de Menezes was wrongly identified as a suicide bomb suspect and shot at Stockwell Tube station, south London on July 22. The letter was wrongly headed with July 21, the date of the failed London suicide bombings.
