Daniel Morgan: Met Police Chief Apologizes For Failed Investigation Of Murdered Private Investigator | UK News

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Dame Cressida Dick has apologized for police failings in the case of murdered private detective Daniel Morgan.

Dame Cressida said it was “a matter of great regret that no one has been brought to justice and that our mistakes have made the pain suffered by Daniel’s family even worse.”

A long-awaited report by an independent panel into the ax murder of Mr Morgan in 1987 accused the Metropolitan Police of “a form of institutional corruption” and found “several very significant lapses” in their initial investigation.

Former Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May, who created the group when she was Home Secretary, told Sky News: “It’s a very hard-hitting report, it’s a damning report.

“This reveals an unfortunately significant corruption within the Metropolitan Police that took place around the investigation into the killer of Daniel Morgan.

“My thoughts are with Daniel Morgan’s family today because it has been a 34-year battle for them to find some sense of understanding of what happened around the murder of their brother.”
