Meiklejohn warned Benson and Kurr that nosey cop Chief Inspector Clarke was getting ready to pounce.
Yonge entered the plan, and got Clarke to visit him on the Isle - of - Wight. This turned later and Yonge said he'd paid 50 to Clarke.
It also came about that the police would only take part if they could have a script and cases they were willing to discuss (we would be forbidden to ask anything they did not like or unexpectedly put to them of an embarrassing nature) We said no, as this would not get a proper response on air especially to cases they would prefer not to discuss.William Kurr enlisted Chief Inspector John Meiklejohn and paid him not to investigate or derail investigations into previous swindles.Second police officer Chief Inspector Nathaniel Druscovich was in financial difficulties, Meiklejohn introduced him to Kurr, who now had two cops on his payroll, this was soon followed by a third cop - Chief Inspector William Palmer.One must consider beyond any doubt, that the four man team of cops were not acting alone to frame Stephen Ward, that conclusion or suggestion would be preposterous to say the least, they were acting under orders from their bosses throughout.At the helm of the conspiracy was Home Secretary Henry Brooke, and he had become anxious and annoyed with Roger Hollis of MI5 who said a prosecution against Ward under the Official Secrets Act would not succeed.
