Scandal-ridden police force

hit by suspensions

FRESH controversy hit Grampian Police with the announcement that two CID officers had been suspended. The force, still reeling over the resignation of its chief constable, Ian Oliver, said the move followed completion of an internal report but refused to disclose the circumstances.

It is understood it is unconnected to the Scott Simpson case, which finally led to Dr Oliver resigning. He was already stepping down following a separate incident when a paper published pictures of him embracing a married woman. At the heart of the row which provoked his resignation last month was a report castigating Grampian Police over its handling of the disappearance of Scott, who was found murdered by a known paedophile.
