UK’s undercover agents

Philip Oltermann in the Guardian, ‘The German government has written to the British Home Office asking for the Pitchford inquiry into undercover policing to be extended to covert operations by British police in Germany.  The inquiry, which was set up following the revelation that former Metropolitan police officer Mark Kennedy had infiltrated protest groups and entered intimate relationships under false pretences, is currently only set to cover Kennedy’s activities in England and Wales . . . According to Left party MP Andrej Hunko, one of the parliamentarians who have been calling for the German government to investigate the Kennedy case, British officers were deployed to infiltrate leftwing activist groups such as Youth Against Racism in Europe and Dissent!, a network that mobilised against the 2005 G8 summit in Heiligendamm.’ click here.
