Former Scotland Yard Commissioner Lord Stevens stands to cash in from a deal worth around £4 million with the University of Huddersfield to train 103 Libyan police.

The university has been given help from Axiom International—a security and forensic science company chaired by Lord Stevens.

The officers started training in 2010.

In 2007 then home secretary Jacqui Smith approved a contract for the National Policing Improvement Agency (NPIA) to instruct Libyan police in leadership and forensic science.

Senior British officers travelled to Libya .

In 2008, the NPIA hosted a Libyan police visit to Britain.

The delegation visited the laboratories of LGC Forensics—a “delivery partner” of Axiom International.
