The director of Close Protection UK — the company responsible for the Jubilee stewards fiasco — received a twelve months suspended sentence for perverting the course of justice. The conviction relates to a family dispute which resulted in a man in coma.
Molly Prince made the admission in a chapter she wrote for a book titled Bouncers and Bodyguards: Tales From A Twilight World, which bills itself as “a collection of astonishing true stories…from some of Britain’s most notorious figures“. In her chapter, From Landlord to Trainer of Bodyguards, she says:
“I copped a plea of perverting the course of justice and was given a 12-month suspended sentence”
Prince was initially arrested on suspicion of GBH, and writes of the victim:
“I believe he never fully recovered”
Later on, talking about her move from being a licensee to getting into training, Prince tells of her experience attending a financial management course, and how it led to her decision to found the Learning Development Centre:
“[the trainers] earned approximately £3,500 for three days work, whereas I was still working ninety or so hours a week in a friggin’ pub for a fraction of that. There and then I decided that training was the business to be in.”
What on earth is this woman doing with Olympics contracts?
