Dewar found guilty of perverting course of justice

Tears flow as top cop found guilty – 08 Aug 2007 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

John Dewar is now officially a dirty cop after being found guilty of perverting the course of justice and obstruction.

When he was chief inspector of the Rotorua CIB in 1993, Dewar covered up sex allegations Louise Nicholas made against police officers Clint Rickards, Brad Shipton and Bob Schollum.

He also deliberately gave inadmissible evidence at the trial of a former policeman accused of having unlawful sex and indecently assaulting Louise Nicholas when she was aged 13 leading to two mistrials before a third trial acquittal.

Questions must now be answered over what else this dastardly crew of bent cops covered up, How many other cases have been buried?
