by duncanr

it was only a little lie!

it was only a little lie!

the UK Ministry for Propaganda Dept for Works and Pensions has lied to Parliament and the British public

trying to ‘sell’ an unpopular measure, the DWP published testimonials from two welfare claimants extolling the virtues of new rules

Dewani Detective charged with Fraud

by duncanr

Colonel Christiaan Theron

Colonel Christiaan Theron, the detective who led the initial investigation into the death of Anni Dewani has been charged with fraud and racism.

The white officer is accused of calling a black subordinate a ‘black baboon’ and then trying to bribe him with the offer of a car to drop the accusation against him.

Full details here –

While this incident is not directly connected to the Dewani murder enquiry, no doubt Shrien Dewani’s lawyers will seek to exploit this incident to strengthen their argument that the case against their client is built on racism and fraud ?
