Alastair Morgan, whose brother was murdered in 1987, and Neil Woods, a former undercover police officer who now investigates police corruption, speak to Insider about how police corruption actually works.
In the interview, Neil broke down in detail all the types of corruption he saw, and even carried out, while working as an undercover police officer for 14 years in the UK.
During his time in the police, Neil came to the conclusion that most "corruption within the police is caused by the money from the illicit drugs market."
Alastair Morgan spoke of how his brother, Daniel Morgan, was murdered with an axe in a pub carpark in South London in 1987.
He told Insider, “Within three weeks [of the murder] I was convinced, because of the events that took place, there had been police involvement in Daniel’s murder. Which was a terrifying prospect.”
At the time of the murder, Daniel ran a detective agency with her business partner, Jonathan Rees. Alastair believes Jonathan Rees and corrupt police officers were involved in the murder.
Since Daniel Mogan’s murder, there have been five separate police investigations. Jonathan Rees and Detective Sergeant Sid Fillery have been arrested multiple times. Each time the charges have been dropped.
In 2014, Jonathan Rees and Sid Fillery received six-figure damages from the Met police after bringing a malicious prosecution claim against them.
In 2021 an independent inquiry found that the Met Police was "institutionally corrupt" in its handling of the investigation into the murder of Daniel Morgan.
Alastair is currently in the process of suing the Metropolitan Police. The murder is still unsolved.
