Julian Bray writes: Interesting week, for the first time since the PETERBOROUGH TRIBUNE started seriously poking into areas, the then local newspaper team wouldn't touch - some six years ago - we were officially asked to take down a story.
So having listened to the reasons, and not wishing to needlessly compromise an investigation, it seems we both independently arrived at the same possible outcome. So the post came down, but it might well be reappearing in a different expanded form, and seen by a much wider international audience, within the next few weeks.
Certainly it will break long before the Local Government Elections and the General Election takes place.
One of those involved for example, has already allegedly made a full confession to his/her political masters, and as a result has already been suspended from party membership, the person concerned also has been instructed, it is alleged, to turn up for a formal police interview on May 17th.
A DATE SET WELL AFTER THE ELECTIONS!
The section referring to this in a document, has been read over to us, verbatim, and we are now looking for a hard copy of the original.
Simply there is a police and multiple agencies investigation underway, which could well affect the future political make up of this City. The very serious allegations involve sitting councillors, prospective candidates, council officers, party workers and sadly isn't confined to one political party. Some of the names suggested to us are well known and 'pillars of society.'
The net even stretches out to Westminster. Independently of the police enquiry, there are to our certain knowledge a sheaf of emails circulating, confirming the actions already taken and already party suspensions (note plural) have begun. Simply if you know someone who may be involved and they are considering running in the May elections, very strongly suggest to them, they withdraw as their term of office may be short lived.
If you happen to hold any of the documents we seek. We just need to copy them. Your identity will be shielded, but we just need to confirm, from an independent source, what we already know before turning over a file of material. And before some people suggest this is just an electioneering ploy to unseat some candidates. It isn't, the investigation is already underway. It is clearly better they are excluded from the Elections before being fully exposed, not by us but by a national team currently investigating a series of linked events.
