Sting exposes corrupt police
Wednesday 04 March 1998
The disgraced officers acted as go-betweens in attempts to get Detective Chief Inspector Peter Elcock to sabotage the cases, the court heard. But the detective was suspicious and alerted his superiors. Mr Elcock then posed as a crooked officer willing to go along with the corruption - while secretly taping the meetings to expose it. Two men - known for legal reasons only as Mr X and Mr Y - were both convicted yesterday of conspiring to pervert the course of justice.
