Police Officer Faces Corruption Charges
A police officer has been charged with five counts of misconduct in a public office, conspiracy to manage a brothel, conspiracy to money launder and conspiracy to possess Class A drugs with intent to supply.
35 year old Osman Iqbal from Birmingham is a serving officer at one of the city's police stations. He is currently suspended from duty with no access to police premises whilst he awaits trial along with nine others.
The charges follow a lengthy investigation which stemmed from the force's anti-corruption unit and involved officers from CID, professional standards and the Metropolitan Police Service, in whose area the alleged brothel was based.
They will all appear at Nuneaton Magistrates' Court on April 30.
Assistant Chief Constable Sharon Rowe said: ``We expect the highest standards from our officers and staff and proactively seek to identify anyone who is suspected of any corrupt activity which would undermine the force's core vision of serving our communities and protecting them from harm.
``The vast majority of West Midlands Police officers and staff are passionate, committed and proud of the work that they do. Any suspicious behaviour will be fully and thoroughly investigated and brought before the courts.''
