Eight former police officers accused of fabricating Lynette White murder case

largely the product of the imagination and then the theories and beliefs of police officers

  • The case is believed to be the biggest trial of police officers in British legal history and could last six months
  • The officers "acted corruptly together" to manufacture the case against the men they suspected killing of Lynette White in Cardiff in
  • Suddenly in December 1988 White's boyfriend, Stephen Miller, and four other men – Yusef Abdullahi, Tony Paris and cousins Ronnie and John Actie – were arrested and charged with her murder
  • Nicholas Dean QC, prosecuting, said the case was "almost entirely a fabrication" and the accusations were "largely the product of the imagination and then the theories and beliefs of police officers
  • "Faced as they were by the murder of a prostitute in an anonymous and squalid flat, the police were confronted by real difficulties," Dean said
