I am indebted to Fiona Hamilton, Crime Editor of The Times, for revealing the astonishing fact that Sarah Everard’s killer Wayne Couzens will keep at least a third of his pension because rules do not allow him to be stripped of the money he had paid in.
Apparently Home Office guidelines show an individual’s pension cannot be forfeited by more than the 65% which came from the police purse.
Four judges, in separate cases, concluded it would be wrong to take the remaining 35% as it represented the officer’s own contributions.
Allegedly to strip any of that would be a clear infringement if the officer’s rights under the European convention of Human Rights.
Is this a joke?

The man will go down in history as one of nation’s most cunning and vile killers and yet while languishing in jail his pension will sit there nice and secure and presumably increasing in value until it is time for him to collect.
Surely the law should be changed so when the judge hands down the sentence to Couzens and other police officers he can take away the pension right.
In Couzens case he was only in the Met for less than three years so the sums are not huge but it’s the message to the public that matters.
As for his family do they really want to have anything to do with him ever again? Does he wife really want to pick up that money in say a decade’s time?
Isn’t it tainted? Hasn’t that cash got blood all over it.
I would have thought so.
