Just had a rather long and interesting conversation with 2 mates who are serving at with a TA unit. A few months ago the vehicle they were traveling in was flashed by a private mobile Gatso. Now a couple of months on the ticket has filtered through the system along with a photograph of said vehicle. The photo has obviously been enhanced, however nether the driver or passenger can be identified from the picture. Neither of the lads can remember who was driving as they were on exercise at the time and drove on this particular road several times a day. (I can assure you if either knew for sure they would admit it) One of the guys off his own back spoke to the Camera Partnership involved and because of what they admit is 'Inconclusive evidence' and the speed involved 56MPH in a 50MPH limit they are unlikely to proceed without an admission from one of them as to who was driving. As far as he was concerned it was a simple matter of return the paper work saying they don't know who was driving and that would be it. (Don't ask about the name on the work ticket as that is a different matter thats been delt with!) Now the SPSI at their unit has an axe to grind with one of the guys and has passed the paper work up to Div and with the assistance of the RSM is demanding written statements from both of them or he is calling in the SIB to investigate. Now bare in mind both are SNCO's and both have civi jobs that maybe affected by points on their licence. I would say the unit is conducting an unsafe investigation and is using oppression to make one of the cough just to keep Bde/Div/SPSI happy. As far as I'm concerned any statement that is not given voluntry is an unsafe document. As for being ordered to possibly incriminate yourself I find that totally unbelievable in this day and age. They have been told that regardless of the outcome one of them will be looking at a sec 70 charge and summary hearing. Now call me old fashioned but didn't double charging an individual for the same offence get knocked on the head in 2000 following the acceptance of the human rights act? Anyone got any thoughts on the matter?
