3. From The Mail on Sunday, 26 February 2006:
Claire is a police officer.
"Claire says she was not the only one at her station with a drugs problem. She knew of at least five other officers there who took Class-A drugs."
4. The Mail on Sunday, 26 February 2006, tells the story of an accountant, Andrew Ramsay, kidnapped in Glasgow by men in police uniforms. When he was kidnapped, Ramsay was with his partner, Beverley Sinclair, a policeman's widow.
Ramsay ran a business with a young Eastern European woman which was based in one of Scotland's most notorious brothels.
Ramsay had been due to give evidence at a major money-laundering trial.
The two men who kidnapped Ramsay presented what appeared to be police identity cards. The kidnappers used 'police jargon'. One of the kidnappers was 6 foot tall.
Detective Superintendent Willie Prendergast described Ramsay as a well respected, upstanding member of the community.
5. John Robertson is the MP for Anniesland. On 6 december 2000, his daughter Laura was "being investigated by the drugs squad after dealing ecstasy" (Daily Record 7/12/00). It is alleged that Laura Robertson sells ecstasy at Bonkers nightclub in Glasgow.
A senior police officer has been found guilty of raping two women.
Inspector A. C. carried out the attacks on the women in their homes.
A.C. brutally raped one of his victims, known only as Mrs X, several times while on police duty including one occasion shortly after she attempted to commit suicide because of the abuse.
He overpowered his second victim Mrs Y in her artist's studio and raped her on the floor as she cried out in pain.
The assaults took place between 1993 and 1996.
At the High Court in Glasgow a jury of eight men and seven women took two hours to convict father-of-two A.C. of the rapes and other charges of indecent assault against the two women.
7. From the Sunday Mail (Scotland), 5/29/2005
A SENIOR police officer has claimed detectives faked diaries and planted evidence in a bid to frame a 12-year-old for the murder of his older brother.
A secret police report released last week brands the murder squad who investigated the death of 14-year-old Lawrence Haggart criminal and incompetent.
The report by James Mackay, the then assistant chief constable of Tayside Police, shows officers became so obsessed with nailing Lawrence's young brother Dennis for the crime that they ignored the true killer - serial paedophile Brian Beattie.
8. "The book claims that there are clear links between known gangsters in Glasgow and officers of Strathclyde police force. The book details these links and the ensuing corruption of police officers, their role in drug-dealing, the bribes and the set-ups, as well as how this has developed. Names are named." - Ferris Conspiracy

1o. Tam McGraw
In July 2007, Glasgow 'crime boss', Tam 'The Licensee' McGraw, died 'of a heart attack' in Glasgow.
McGraw owned security companies, taxi firms, pubs, and a property portfolio in Scotland, Ireland and Spain worth 'at least £10m'. McGraw's empire is said to be worth £30 million in total. (In Scotland it has been estimated that 47% of individuals are earning under £10,000 per year.)
Allegedly, McGraw's main income came from the sale of heroin and cocaine. It has been claimed that McGraw was backed by corrupt police officers, who passed on confiscated drugs which McGraw then sold on the streets. - Gangster reign of The Licensee brought to end by heart attack / GANGSTER NO1 IS DEAD'
After one failed robbery, McGraw was arrested while trying to flee on foot. Charges were dropped and he was released the following morning. (According to the Mail on Sunday, 29 January 2006, only 3% of crimes in Scotland result in convictions.)
One of the McGraw family businesses, the Caravel pub, was suddenly bulldozed after the police learnt that it had played a role in the deaths of Joe "Bananas" Hanlon and Bobby Glover. The demolition prevented a planned forensic investigation. - An inglorious end to the shadowy life of a feared gangland criminal
Reg McKay, in The Daily Record, 29 August 2005, reported that a street brawl between police left people scrutinising the cosy relationship between the Licensee (McGraw) and 'his police officer pals.'
"One of the Serious Crime Squad grabbed McGraw and tried to take him away from his Scottish Crime Squad captors. Tug of war was on. Then one man threw a punch and bedlam broke out with police wrestling, kicking and butting each other as McGraw stood in the middle of the battle totally ignored.
"Locals gathered for the best entertainment they'd had in years. Duelling rozzers. One or two joined in, taking the chance of a free swipe at a copper. Eventually peace was restored and the two police outfits went into confab. Whatever was said, the handcuffs were unlocked and Thomas McGraw walked back to his flat, a free man once again."
The Daily Record wrote: "Local uniforms and CID could often be found sitting in the McGraws' home drinking tea and smoking.
"When McGraw bought The Caravel pub, certain well-known detectives were in regularly, drinking heavily and never putting their hand in their pockets. It was too cosy."
Why have large numbers of top people in Scotland apparently tried to cover up the links between the Lockerbie Bomb and heroin? (Lockerbie, Dr Hans Kochler, the SCCRC, Oliver Reve... )
Lockerbie is in Dumfries and Galloway which has had strong links to the drugs trade since the 19th century. There are large mansions in Dumfries and Galloway which were built by people linked to 'the China trade'.
William Jardine (1784-1843) was born, near Lochmaben, Dumfriesshire, not so far from Lockerbie. Jardine, together with James Matheson, went into the opium business in China.
Jardine helped to start the First Opium War. Britain was smuggling opium from India into China, and when China tried to stop this, there was war. China was defeated and forced to allow the opium trade.
Some top Scots still seem to have links to people allegedly involved in the drugs trade?
'Drug baron Justin McAlroy was gunned down on his driveway in Glasgow's Cambuslang only six days after wining and dining Labour VIPs Jack McConnell and John Reid at a dinner to raise funds for the party in 2002.' - ( http://www.sundayherald.com/news/heraldnews/display.var.1089961.0.0.php )
'Police have found cannabis resin in the home of the British Defence Secretary, John Reid, but the minister says he has no idea where it came from.' - Sunday Mail 30 April 2006
According to the Sunday Mail (Glasgow, Scotland) 9/4/2005:
'GRIM-FACED Defence Secretary John Reid shared centre stage at his son's wedding yesterday - with a villain wanted by police. Tony Blair's most trusted minister and fugitive Ronnie Campbell - the father of the bride - stood side by side on the steps of Westminster Cathedral.' Reportedly, Campbell's name has been linked to drugs.
Juval Aviv, the owner of Interfor Inc, a private investigation company based in New York, was asked by PanAm to investigate Lockerbie. Aviv made some discoveries about heroin.
According to The Scotsman: ( Http://news.scotsman.com/topics.cfm?tid=184&id=101478200 )
"THE CIA is alleged to have set up a protected drug route from Europe to the United States - called Operation Corea - which allowed Syrian drug dealers to ship heroin to the US using Pan Am flights... The American intelligence officers on Pan Am 103 - Matthew Gannon and Major Charles McKee - had found out about it, and were on their way to Washington to tell their superiors... Aviv was never interviewed by either the Scottish police or the FBI."
Reportedly, a number of important people were warned not to fly on the PanAm 103 flight which came down over Lockerbie.
According to The Scotsman ( Http://news.scotsman.com/topics.cfm?tid=184&id=1014782007 )
"A 23-strong South African delegation, headed by foreign minister, Pik Botha, cancelled a booking on the flight at short notice. There was also a last-minute change of travel plan by the UN Commissioner for Namibia, Bernt Carlsson."
( Http://news.scotsman.com/topics.cfm?tid=184&id=1014702007 )
"Washington knew enough to put up notices in its Moscow embassy warning personnel not to travel on Pan Am flights, to withdraw the South African general staff - Generals Van Tonder and Malan, Rusty Evans and Pik Botha - and advise personnel from the American army of the Rhine not to travel..."
Presumably, the CIA did not warn Major Charles McKee.
The CIA seemed to know approximately when and where PanAm Flight 103 was going to come down.
Tam Dalyell wrote in The Scotsman:
( Http://news.scotsman.com/topics.cfm?tid=184&id=1014702007 )
'Within an hour of Pan Am 103 crashing on Lockerbie, on a point of order, I interrupted House of Commons routine business to ask for a statement. Simultaneously, by helicopter, American personnel were arriving on the scene, and were soon to take over..."
The Scottish business, legal and political establishment is at risk of corruption by criminal godfathers who crave power and influence as much as wealth, a top crime-fighter has warned.
