It was obviously better to do this than allow the public to believe there may be widespread corruption in the force -- but this would have been so if the public had been aware of three other officers on trial with him were being sent to jail for conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
The Press were actively if not covertly, encouraged to concentrate their stories on Challenor -- and unfortunately -- they did, and the three other convicted officers quietly left the court for a journey to prison by the back-door so-to-speak.
Many bookies suspected Yonge and the unusual large winnings at the race course. Yonge was a trickster and he chose victim Comtesse de Goncourt for a swindle acting as the betting agent using an alias.
Madame de Goncourt invested 10,000, and that was the last she saw of it.
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.
An investigation began immediately into Stephen Ward -- with instructions to 'find something and everything useful no matter how trivial' The CID were employed headed by CHIEF INSPECTOR SAMUEL HERBERT and DETECTIVE SERGEANT JOHN BURROWS, who chose DETECTIVE SERGEANT ARTHUR EUSTACE and DETECTIVE SERGEANT MICHAEL GLASSE who were considered as 'The Hunters' -- this special team of four were assembled and briefed by COMMANDER FRED C. DETECTIVE SUPERINTENDENT JAMES AXON was in charge of the 'field-work' and made the prolonged search for any evidence that would tilt the scales towards Ward.
This might shock, but it is a fact the tip of the iceberg and not a full picture of police corruption --- it goes much deeper than those figures and encompasses all ranks -- as you will see if you go to ' The Bent Cops' list, which is just a snapshot of what we have in our files. Although the Police Force was in it's formative years and malpractice was a regular event, the conviction of four senior officers for taking bribes caused the public to doubt the integrity of a force that should have been law abiding.Brooke was absolutely determined to get Stephen Ward by whatever means, fair or foul, and the latter was chosen.So he went to The Metropolitan Police, and they were up for it.From this beginning, the police were never able to shake off corruption, its smell never escaped the corridors of power even though some introduced 'sweeping' and 'special teams' to eradicate it --- they were not successful, and never have been.All such investigations have been 'cosmetic' and ' a publicity stunt' in order to allay public fears.
