We’ve been having some interesting discussions around Abe and Ella’s IPCC letter and what it really means. On their now mercifully defunct blog, Abe gloated that it meant they had ‘won!’…but we’re not so sure.
For one thing, not all of us are convinced that the IPCC letter Abrella claim to have received is, in fact, real.
Sam, a regular commenter here, says:
I read the IPCC letter again and I am convinced it is a fraud. It’s far too wordy and long (way too long) and is contradictory in parts and indeed, if it was genuine the media would have picked up on it as this case, shocking that it is, is a very juicy media tale.
Yes, that’s an excellent point. If the police could be shown to have acted improperly in a case like this, you’d expect it to be all over the media. Oh, except that the media is controlled by shape-shifting reptiles. Whoops, silly of us to forget about that.
The IPCC like many organisations send out regular press releases and most certainly would have in this case as they want to be seen to be active.
My guess is that Abe has doctored a genuine reply which would have been a rejection of Abella’s claims- the main reason being that police actually carried out all the right procedure – the screeching claims of the hoaxers re: body tattoos, RD not being arrested etc., etc., are rubbish. The IPCC does not criticise police if they carried out correct procedure. I would go as far to say Ella genuinely believes it’s a real response and Abe has tricked her as you are correct, Ella is his meal ticket.
That seems entirely possible: as others have mentioned here, Abe doesn’t have much to offer Ella other than his ability to keep this hoax going on her behalf.
Furthermore, Sam points out, the case has already been decided; it seems as though the alleged IPCC investigation is merely a distraction to keep the last remaining conspiranoids hooked into the Hampstead hoax:
I cannot recall any case where the IPCC have criticised a matter that the courts have already dealt with. This case has been decided in the High Court and an appeal has been heard & lost by Abella. If the IPCC had written that letter it would be a condemnation of how the police and Family Court conducted the case & it would be huge news. The media would have jumped on it. Their silence is deafening.
Even if Abella thought they had a case the IPCC is the wrong body to approach. Their lawyers would need to try to mount a new case but they would need new evidence to get past first base.
This is another good point: if Abrella really wanted to reopen the case, they should have mounted a new case, revealing all the great new evidence they’d uncovered to support their arguments.
Oh, except there was no new evidence; and the old evidence had all been shown to be deeply inadequate. Kind of a problem, that.
Sam also asks an obvious question: where’s the report?
Mysteriously the IPCC’s decision does not feature on their website where they list all their investigations.
As I say, they issue press releases after every investigation for obvious reasons that the public has a right to know. Perhaps the Cult has finally infiltrated them and removed all mention of the Abrella Case.
Dave, another reader, notes that even if the IPCC letter is real (and that’s not a foregone conclusion), it contains some puzzling contradictions:
There certainly appears to be a contradiction between the IPCC stating that they cannot comment on the thoroughness of the investigation, and parts where they do appear to comment on it. For example, that the police didn’t mention other allegations to RD, and didn’t follow other lines of enquiry.
The IPCC role is to investigate the mis/conduct of police officers, so I suppose they could try argue that the above is part of that.
I noticed the IPCC stated that their decision is based on the IO report and Abraham’s 20+ page complaint. That the IO report was only 5 pages long and half of that was giving background. I doubt the IO would be able to cover every aspect of the complaint in a few pages. Therefore, the IPCC is asking for greater clarification and that is fair enough, but that is all it is. They are not saying the investigation was poor or inadequate, just the report in response to Abraham’s complaint was inadequate.
That is why I think a more thorough report will satisfy the IPCC, but will never satisfy Abraham. Though of course, you could be right and it is completely fake.
Conclusion: we’ve been leaning toward the ‘fake IPCC letter’ theory ourselves, but even in the event that Abe and Ella aren’t lying about this one (and why wouldn’t they, when they’ve lied about everything else?), the letter itself does nothing to further their case.
It’s just another distraction, a giant red herring thrown out to divert our attention from the fact that Abe and Ella lost this case months ago.
