Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Appendices to the Minutes of Evidence


Letter to Detective Superintendent Nick Gargan, Leicestershire Constabulary,

from Councillor Merlyn Vaz

Thank you for your letter of 25th January 2002.

Although I welcome the re-wording of your letter it is still phrased in a way leaving open the accusation that I may have chosen not to co-operate about the call I received. If you have read the letter from the hospital you will be aware that there was just no choice open to me. Indeed as I said, my consultant told your officers this when they called at the hospital where I was in intensive care. I also note that your letter was based on hearing from everyone else except the victim, me. Thank you for telling me that you place a high priority on being responsive to the needs of victims. My current course of treatment ends around next week and I will ask my daughter to ring you so that I can give you whatever information you need and decide with you how to take matters forward.
