Police officers to enter pleas over photos of scene where sisters were killed

Two Metropolitan Police officers accused of sharing photos of the bodies of two murdered sisters on WhatsApp are due to file pleadings.

PC Deniz Jaffer 47 and PC Jamie Lewis, 33, will appear at the Old Bailey on Tuesday on charges of misconduct in public office between June 7 and 23 last year.

Officers were hired to protect the scene after sisters Bibaa Henry, 46, and Nicole Smallman, 27, were found dead in bushes in Fryent Country Park in Wembley, north London.

It is alleged that they took “unofficial and inappropriate photos” of the crime scene before sharing them on WhatsApp.

You were arrested during a criminal investigation by the Independent Office for Police Conduct’s (IOPC) watchdog.

The indictment states that he “entered a crime scene without authorization that had been assigned to him for his protection, sent information about his visit to the crime scene to the public via WhatsApp and photographed the crime scene”.

The couple, who belong to the Met Northeast Command Unit, were both suspended from duty after their arrest on June 22 last year.

Jaffer from Hornchurch, East London, and Lewis from Colchester, Essex, are on unconditional bail.

You are due to appear before Judge Mark Lucraft QC at 9:30 am.
