Met police spy has long-term relationship with activist after quitting covert role

A police spy quit her undercover deployment and has had a romantic relationship, lasting more than a decade, with one of the prominent political activists she had been sent to monitor.
The spy, who used the fake identity of Christine Green, met the activist while she spent five years undercover infiltrating the animal rights movement.
Since the end of her covert deployment, more than 15 years ago, she has been living with the activist Tom Frampton in remote cottages in Cornwall and Scotland.
Frampton had been a leading anti-foxhunting campaigner and had a criminal record over his conduct at protests. He was jailed for three months in 1993 for headbutting a foxhunter, according to court reports.
It is unclear at what point Green disclosed to her boyfriend that she had been sent to spy on animal rights activists. Recently the couple lived in a secluded cottage in a forest in Scotland. Frampton made no comment when the Guardian visited last year.



A public inquiry led by a judge, Sir John Mitting, is examining how undercover officers tasked with infiltrating political groups frequently started long-term relationships with activists.
Green is unusual because she is the first female undercover officer who has been revealed as having begun a long-term intimate relationship with a campaigner.
The inquiry was set up following a series of disclosures about the activities of undercover officers, including the collection of information about grieving families and concealment of evidence in trials.
Green was unmasked following investigations by the Guardian and campaigners.
Donal O’Driscoll, of the Undercover Research Group, a network of activists who have investigated Green, said campaigners sought an honest explanation from the couple about what had happened.

Green started her undercover deployment in 1995 after she joined the Special Demonstration Squad (SDS), a secret Metropolitan police unit.
Undercover SDS officers adopted fake identities and infiltrated hundreds ofpolitical groups during the unit’s 40-year existence, usually spending several years pretending to be dedicated political activists.
Green concealed her covert role from the activists she was sent to infiltrate. According to campaigners, she said she worked for a courier company. She had a van and often used to drive campaigners to meetings and demonstrations.
Paul Gravett, an animal rights campaigner, said: “She had quite a serious and aloof personality although she could be friendly to people she wanted to know.”
Robin Lane, another campaigner, said he went to her flat in Streatham, south London, because she was helping to post newsletters to protesters.



Activists say Green joined groups campaigning for animal rights and helped manage the finances of one of the groups, London Animal Action. She was also involved in protests that sought to disrupt foxhunting across south-east England. The hunters and protesters, known as saboteurs, or sabs, were often involved in unruly confrontations.
One activist who did not wish to be identified said he regularly went hunt sabbing with Green. “She was very active on a regular basis, at least weekly for several years. She was definitely considered one of us. I thought of her as someone committed to our aims.” She could be fiery in confrontations with the foxhunters, he said.
During Green’s deployment, she became close friends with Frampton, a well-known hunt sab, then in his 30s, who had been an active protester since the early 1980s.
The court heard that Frampton broke a hunter’s nose during the confrontation that led to his imprisonment in 1993. He claimed that he had acted in self-defence. According to press reports, he told the court he had lodged an appeal against his conviction, but the outcome is not known.
Green appears to have disappeared from the animal rights movement around 2000. According to Gravett, she said she was going to Australia for a friend’s funeral and then going travelling.
In reality, her covert mission was coming to an end – a typical SDS undercover deployment lasted about five years – and soon afterwards she left the police and began living with Frampton in Cornwall.



The couple have remained friendly with animal rights activists, who, although there had been suspicions, were unaware of Green’s covert past. An activist said he visited the pair socially at their Cornish cottage in the mid-2000s and did not know she had been in the police.
Another activist said that rumours of her undercover role came up about five years ago in a conversation with Frampton, who told him he did not wish to discuss them. Frampton said at that time that he and Green were living happily as a couple, he added.

Frampton was still involved in animal rights protests in the early 2000s. He travelled to the Outer Hebrides with other activists in 2003 and was convicted of breaching the peace during a demonstration to save threatened hedgehogs.
Now in his 50s, he is also understood to have worked as an undercover investigator for the animal rights campaign Animal AidIt covertly installed secret cameras in abattoirs in 2010 to record footage that it said showed pigs being kicked, stamped on and inappropriately stunned.
Lawyers for the abattoirs alleged Frampton had installed the cameras and that he had trespassed in doing so, but Animal Aid declined to identify the investigator.
Frampton and Green later left Cornwall and lived in Scotland until last year. Their current whereabouts are unknown.
O’Driscoll, of the Undercover Research Group, said: “Speaking to people who knew them, there is a sense of sadness rather than anger. These two were good friends to campaigners who, I think more than anything, just want honesty and answers, an explanation of why this happened.”

Publish Spycops Names, Says Ex-Undercover Cop + more 25/01/18

Publish Spycops Names, Says Ex-Undercover Cop


Neil Woods went undercover in 1993. He spent 14 years as a drugs squad officer, and estimates he’s responsible for prison sentences totalling over 1,000 years. But he came to realise that his work wasn’t just hopeless, it was actually causing the problems it was supposed to solve.
Like many ex-undercover officers, he suffers from PTSD. He has written a book about his experiences – Good Cop Bad War – and is chair of LEAP UK (Law Enforcement Action Partnership, formerly Law Enforcement Against Prohibition).
It’s notable that he does not feel the need to hide his identity. If an officer responsible for jailing people who murder betrayers can make advertised public appearances, there is no excuse for the political secret police to have their names withheld.
Scarlet Palmer interviewed Neil Woods for the Sensi Seeds site, but as the conversation turned from drug policy to the Undercover Policing Inquiry, Palmer knew she was hearing something that COPS readers would want to know.
Woods began by explaining the dissociation essential to being undercover, and how it was protection from colleagues as much as anything else.
Neil Woods: I never had any sense of community in the work I used to do really, because I was separated even from my own ranks. I couldn’t tell any of my colleagues who weren’t involved and the people I worked for, well, when I was dropped into an undercover op, I was using a pseudonym to the cops I was working with. Even they weren’t allowed to know my real name, and they could be disciplined for asking me. They were told that on the first day of the job. Obviously, it was a protection against corruption.

POLICE PROTECTING CORPORATIONS

Scarlet Palmer: Mark Kennedy, who was undercover under the name Mark Stone, was originally deployed as an undercover ‘test purchase officer’ buying illegal drugs. Were you aware of the activities of the Special Demonstration Squad and the National Public Order Intelligence Unit? Do you see a difference between the political policing and the Drugs Squad policing?
NW: Actually, someone tried to recruit me into that kind of work. Specifically for animal rights, and I said no, and they tried again. And they actually – (laughs) – they actually explained to me that “well, this is important for the nation because we could lose this massive percentage of GDP if those companies left the UK”.
And I thought, “hang on a minute, so we – so you – so we’re actually using the police to protect private corporations now?” So that was my attitude, and I had a very low opinion of that kind of work, so obviously I didn’t go into that. I was just horrified by the idea, really.
SP: It must have been a comparatively cushy number infiltrating London Greenpeace.
NW: Oh I know.

NO RISK IN NAMING SPYCOPS

SP: The Undercover Policing Inquiry is up and running, even if it hasn’t formally started. Do you think that the names of the undercover police who spied on activists should be released?
NW: I follow this very closely – the question of the Met refusing, and fighting in court, the efforts to publish the names of people. Well yes, of course they should be published. Only it should be reviewed by a separate committee to decide whether those people would genuinely be at risk.
That group of political infiltrators, I have to say, there are maybe three or four people out of all of them who infiltrated extreme organisations from the right, or terrorist organisations, who would genuinely be at risk. So no, you can’t publish their names. But they’re not the controversial ones. The controversial ones are the people who were infiltrating essentially pacifist organisations. So the idea that they would be at risk from that is ludicrous.

THE MET: IMMORAL & UNETHICAL

To emphasise that point, I draw attention to my own story. I have infiltrated people who casually rape, maim and murder people. And here I am, with my name on a book, I even tell people I live in Herefordshire, and you’re telling me it’s not safe to publish the details of someone who spent way too many years hanging round with a bunch of, for the most part, completely pacifist protestors against what they perceived to be social injustice? There is no comparison there. The idea that they are now at risk is utterly ludicrous.
And the Met are dragging their feet over this tactically, they are taking the piss out of the entire inquiry system and the process by the way that they’re doing it, they’re behaving completely immorally, completely unethically, and I find the whole situation infuriating.

THE DUTY TO COOPERATE

What I find really frustrating about the undercover inquiry is that there are really serious ethical issues about the way that policing happens in this country. Really serious. And the police have a duty to respond and cooperate fully with that, and they are not doing. What they’re doing is unethical. They’re playing for time and hoping it goes away.
I would personally want to open up the undercover inquiry to include the kind of work that I did, because that kind of work is still going on, and it is causing harm. I can evidence that it causes harm to people.

SURVEILLANCE IMPACTS THE WHOLE OF SOCIETY

So you’re talking about police surveillance; police surveillance has got out of control. If you look at the instructions to undercover police officers, they are breached. Human rights are breached. I breached human rights. And these kind of things need studying, this needs getting out and into the public domain and studying properly.
Surveillance on this scale impacts not just individual human rights, it impacts the whole fabric of society. We have an opportunity now to answer the demands of those people affected by undercover policing, to actually get it out in the open, and the Met are being absolutely unforgivable in their tactics to delay the process.

Neil Woods will be giving a talk on undercover policing in London on 7 February.
