MI5 feared British police attended terrorist camps
MI5 warned Scotland Yard that policemen in its ranks were suspected of attending terrorist training camps, it can be disclosed.
I recall a case a couple of years ago where a muslim police employee was caught using police computers to find out information about muslim girls and women who had fled forced or abusive marriages and were in hiding from their families. This guy was giving or selling the information to men who were hunting down the fugitive women.
We've also had some high profile muslim senior officers who have milked police budgets for tens of thousands of pounds in compensation for alleged racial discrimination. Others have been sacked and even imprisoned for corruption and mis-using their authority.
Facts are now emerging about police forces refusing to take action in multiple cases of child abuse by muslim grooming gangs: even when the girls' families begged police officers to intervene.
So how far has this infiltration gone, and is there anything can be done about it?

MI5 warned Scotland Yard that some of its officers had attended terrorist training camps

Scotland Yard was warned by MI5 that some of its policemen were suspected of attending terrorist training camps, it has emerged.
Following the warning, the police officers lost their jobs after checks were carried out because of concerns that potential terrorists had infiltrated the police.
One of the police officers suspected of being at a terrorist training camp in Pakistan in 2001 is Abdul Rahman.
Worrying: Scotland Yard was warned by MI5 that some of its policemen were suspected of attending terrorist training camps
He had been a constable for nearly three years when MI5 warned Scotland Yard about its suspicions.
The 33-year-old is the first British policeman revealed to have failed counter-terrorism checks.
The father-of-four, who is married, resigned from the force rather than be dismissed and is suing Scotland Yard for compensation.
He has said he is innocent and has never been to a training camp.
According to The Sunday Telegraph, a source close to the case said there were one or two other police officers who also lost their jobs due to fears by MI5 that they may have trained as terrorists.
The senior Metropolitan Police source told the newspaper: 'There was concern that these people had come into the force under false pretenses.
Concerns: It is believed that at least two police officers have lost their jobs due to fears by MI5 that they may have trained as terrorists. MI5's headquarters in London is pictured
'There were two or three cases at the same time that were of a similar nature, where there were concerns about potential terrorist links.'
Mr Rahman's clearance was believed to have been revoked following a security review carried out by MI5 following the July 7, 2005, terrorist attack.
The details of his case and MI5's suspicion have been made public through court documents as he fights a legal case over his exit from Scotland Yard.
Mr Rahman, who is Muslim and was raised in London after being born in Bangladesh, does not dispute that he went to Pakistan back in 2001.
But his lawyers say he has been tangled up in national security legislation.
His security clearance was suspended on June 22, 2006 and he was interviewed three times - probably by counter-terrorism officers - in the following months.
He resigned in 2007 after an appeal hearing upheld the decision to remove his counter-terrorist check clearance.
During this time, MI5 checked details of police staff at the Met against its own records of suspects who had been to Pakistan or Afghanistan who it suspected of attending training camps.
Mr Rahman has declined to comment on the case.
But his lawyer, Jasmine van Loggerenberg, said it's important to stress that this is a case being brought by Mr Rahman, not by the Metropolitan Police.
There are no criminal proceedings against him.
She confirmed he has never been arrested, questioned or charged under terrorism legislation.
Mr Rahman's case is due to be taken up in secret by an Employment Appeal Tribunal.
He is claiming to be the victim of racial and religious discrimination.
A spokesman for Scotland Yard confirmed he was bringing two employment tribunal claims against the Metropolitan Police.

The problem with this case is the evidence from Mi5. They will probably not want to give any for fear of exposing operatives, and so mr Rahman will most likely get a nice payout. And the public will be left guessing again about the integrity of our police force.
People are asked everyday to trust members of our community that are muslim. We are asked to trust Doctors, nurses, Policemen, who come from the islamic faith. And yet we're constantly hearing half storys about doctors who don't wash their hands, members of our community that want us under the sharia, and go to pakistan and other countries for terrorist training, and police who are suspected of being security risks.
We then see these people sacked or forced to leave, we then see them get massive payouts. It just builds more mistrust and more resentment.

Good day mates, I have a queston ferom across the pond. I do not know your laws, but can't you impeach or get this plice chief out of office as we did here in Ca. W/ Gov. Davis

In this case the officer who resigned has done so because he feels he has is suffering from constructive dismisal.
If the security services can offer no credibal or admissible evidence, the officer will get a nice payout. He's probably got a no win no fee solicitor. So he loses nothing by making a claim.
As for the impeachment laws in this country, we do have them, But generaly for political officials. The police officer who was sacked was a police constable as opposed to a high ranking official.
