Not the first time YOU don't have a right to know

The murder of Lesley Molseed was also exempt from the public's RIGHT TO KNOW. The Mirror submitted an FOI request for the police files to be released in 2007. The request was denied. Note that Max McLean is also in the news regarding the McCann case. He traveled to Germany to interview Raymond Hewlett.

In 1994, former Detective Superintendent Dick Holland and retired forensic scientist Ronald Outteridge were charged with perverting the course of justice over the initial investigation. A magistrate ruled the case should not proceed - without giving reasons.

A report into the police handling of the Stefan case has been kept secret for more than 14 years. An application by the Mirror for the file to be released under the Freedom of Information Act was declined earlier this year. Lancashire Police said the public's best interest was best-served by "nondisclosure". In 1994 DCI Dick Holland, CS Dibb and forensic scientist Ronald Outteridge were accused of destroying evidence and withholding statements from the defence, proving the whereabouts of Stefan on the day of the murder. Dibb died. Holland and Outteridge never faced trial after it was ruled it would be an "abuse of process."
