Source: Press TV

A British MP says a senior counter-terrorism officer with the London Metropolitan police has illegally entered his house and sent emails under a fake identity in a “dirty trick” campaign.

Bradford West MP George Galloway said in a parliamentary motion that the officer even slept in his house while he sent fake emails to deceive organizations including a British newspaper about his identity.

"The House of Commons expresses its concern at the involvement of a very senior officer in the Metropolitan Police counter-terrorism branch SO15 in an apparent dirty tricks operation against the honorable member for Bradford West (Galloway),” the motion said.

"It notes that the officer entered Galloway’s London home without his knowledge or consent, [Galloway] never having met or heard of him, and he slept in [Galloway’s] home." It added.

The MP from the socialist Respect party also explained that the officer had “operated under an alias against [him] on Facebook and elsewhere, all the while concealing that he was a senior serving officer at Scotland Yard.”

The London Metropolitan Police said it has temporarily placed the officer, who is understood to be a detective inspector, on restricted duty adding they have referred the case to the Police Complaints Commission for further investigation
