...from the "No Suprises" files

The head of the Purana Taskforce denies the investigation into Melbourne's underworld slayings has been tainted by corruption.

Two police officers have been suspended amid allegations of corruption, one of whom used to be in charge of monitoring phone taps.

The officers are not connected to a separate probe into corruption within the former drug squad, which has so far seen two detecitves jailed and another dozen charged.

It is understood the move forced the Purana Taskforce to shift its phone tap operations to the Ethical Standards Department.

MU is adopting a "wait and see" attitude about this for the moment, but it's not a suprise. The Bad Eggs are still there in the Police, stinkin' the joint up, protected by the stunned Mulletts.
