The Mayor


Allegations have been raised and discussed in both the national Bundestag and the Berlin Parliament that Met Police officer Mark Kennedy operated in Germany, playing a role in 3 crimes and forming a relationship with a woman whilst using his undercover identity. Given the possible impact on liaison between international police forces, and the protocols which govern them, will you join me in writing to the Home Secretary Theresa May and Judge Pitchford, asking that Germany gets covered in the Inquiry into Undercover Officers?

I am satisfied that the terms of reference set out by the Home Secretary for the Inquiry led by Lord Pitchford are sufficient and the MPS will assist the enquiry as it progresses.  I have no doubt that should Lord Pitchford consider it necessary to extend the terms of reference he will make the necessary representations to the Home Office.
