The Home Office yesterday ruled out a judicial inquiry into the 17 year old murder of a private detective, despite an MP raising questions about the key investigating role of a former police officer suspected of being involved in the death.
Roger Williams, the Liberal Democrat MP for Brecon and Radnorshire, took the unusual step of using parliamentary privilege to name ex-police sergeant Sidney Fillery, who now co-owns a detective agency set up by the victim, Daniel Morgan.
Mr Williams also asked whether the government was unwilling to hold an inquiry because it would prove uncomfortable for the Home Office and the Metropolitan police.
Speaking in a Commons adjournment debate, the MP said Mr Fillery had been one of the officers at Catford CID who played a key role in the first four days of the initial murder inquiry.
During those four crucial 'golden days', Mr Williams said, Mr Fillery conducted the first interview with the main suspect, his friend and Mr Morgan's business partner Jonathan Rees.
He also had "the opportunity to take possession of key incriminating files . . . including Daniel's diary, which has never been found".
Mr Williams, in whose constituency Mr Morgan's mother, Isabel Hulsmann, lives, said Metropolitan police officers who conducted a fourth investigation last year described the case as "the worst mess they had ever seen".
According to Mr Williams, the Met said "the real mischief" lay in the initial investigation in 1987, and "the role of ex-police sergeant Sidney Fillery in that investigation lay at the heart of the mischief".
