I have no idea if anyone has officially complained about any interpreter. What I'm saying is that doing so after 11 years is far too late to do it.

You must be aware that Kate says in her book she raised the issue at the second interview and was told iff by the intepreter.... And eventually was so concerned about the statements, accuracy made, a new, statement using Control Risks which were passed to the PJ

The paper used in the photocopier  could have had PJ watermarks as well.

Paul Gordon's 'statement' had nothing tp do with the PJ.

So no likelihood of it being a forgery then.

What it is is an unsigned letter, not a police statement. The reason I'm interested in it is the sequence of events. The
letter is dated 06/05/2007.

On 7th January 2008 the contents were leaked to the Evening Standard. The newspaper says 'it was revealed yesterday', but doesn't say by whom. It says ' Mr Gordon was interviewed by Scotland Yard detectives and Metodo 3'. Jeremy Wilkins was interviewed by Scotland Yard and his statement is completely different; it is indeed a police statement.

Mr Gordon, the newspaper admits 'refused to comment about his statement', so who leaked it to the Standard and why?

It was after this newspaper article that LP did an identikit image with Gordon, on 17th January 2007. Seven months after his first 'statement'
