‘Alison’: deceived by undercover police officer
Harriet Wistrich: solicitor
Eveline Lubbers: Undercover Research Group
The Undercover Policing Inquiry was appointed following revelations that undercover police officers kept lawful political campaigns under surveillance, assumed the identities of deceased children and deceived women into having sexual relationships.
‘Alison’ is a member of Police Spies Out of Lives and gave evidence to the Home Affairs Committee on her experience of having been deceived by undercover police officer Mark Jenner into having a long term relationship. Harriet Wistrich represents several women, including Alison, who have successfully pursued civil claims and obtained an apology from the Metropolitan Police Service, and others that will be giving evidence to the Undercover Policing Inquiry. Dr Eveline Lubbers is a member of the Undercover Research Group and has published research on the activities of undercover police officers. Core issues that will be raised before the Undercover Policing Inquiry, relating to lawful police surveillance, the right to privacy and family life, freedom of expression and the law on sexual offences, will also be discussed at the seminar.
