Roy Clarke is the present Director of Investigations at the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) and I am advised that he has not participated in any way in the investigation into the conduct of the police in relation to the conviction of Erkin Guney.

The IPCC has advised that it will always take care to avoid the involvement of any Commissioner or member of staff in a case on its behalf who has had previous involvement in cases which might raise a conflict of interest.
