Sir Ian Andrews
Wednesday 29 January 2014
Recent articles in The
Independent have reported how the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA)
refused publicly to disclose the identities of blue chip companies which hired
private detectives. Sir Ian Andrews, was Chairman of SOCA when the
decision to classify the information was made and communicated to a
parliamentary select committee. He has asked us to make clear that he was
uninvolved in the decision-making process: that as non-executive Chairman, his
role was simply to communicate and explain the decision made by SOCA officers
and that his resignation as SOCA Chairman was unconnected with his appearances
before the select committee. It was solely as a result of his failure formally
to disclose to SOCA that in 2012 he had become the director of a management
consultancy company which he ran with his wife.
