A model who was secretly filmed by a senior Metropolitan Police officer using spy cameras has been left with bald spots after pulling out her hair, a court has heard.

Another police pervert

Detective inspector Neil Corbel, 40, posed as an airline pilot to book women for photoshoots before planting the gadgets in hotel rooms, flats, and Airbnbs. The cameras were hidden in everyday items, including tissue boxes, phone chargers, air fresheners, glasses, keys and headphones, to video his unsuspecting victims.

Police found images of 51 women on Corbel’s hard drive, with 19 victims, including 16 models and three escorts, agreeing to make statements against him.

Corbel, a former counter-terrorism officer, who has been suspended by the Met where he was attached to the Continuous Policing Improvement Command, has pleaded guilty to 19 counts of voyeurism. Judge Martin Edmunds QC will sentence him at Isleworth Crown Court later on 21 January for the offences which took place across the London, Manchester, and Brighton areas between January 2017 and February 2020.

Three of the women, who cannot be identified because they are victims of sexual offences, attended court to face the former counter-terrorism officer as they read their victim impact statements.

High-level manipulation

One model, who agreed to pose for a “fashion and artistic nude shoot”, was visibly angry as she told Corbel his crimes had “affected every aspect of my life”. She said, showing her scalp to the court:

I have pulled so much of my hair out with stress I have bald spots and have had to turn down work.

Women, especially models and sex workers, tend to struggle to report sex crimes to police.

He knew we were potentially easy, quiet prey. So, how can I tell women to trust police when this man has shaken my beliefs?

Another model said:

The fact the defendant is a police officer has scared me and shocked me. He’s supposed to enforce the law, not break it. I expect he knows how to deal with people, and he’s used his knowledge, experience and training to manipulate me.

He was so charming and believable in his role. I just ask myself what else was he capable of?

A third woman, who went on a date with Corbel, said he came across as “genuine and charming”. She said:

The way Neil lied and completely made up a different life still sticks in my mind a lot.

A man with his intelligence would’ve known he could reach out for help rather than manipulate women for his own kicks.

Other victims, who were not in court, mentioned the case of 33-year-old marketing executive Sarah Everard, who was snatched off the street before being raped and murdered by Met PC Wayne Couzens, 48. One said:

The fact that he is a policeman is a huge deal.

These people are meant to protect us. Following the murder of Sarah Everard this feels like a very frightening time to be a woman.

Sex work can be dangerous, though I’m lucky in this is the first form of violence I have experienced at work.

If you can’t trust police officers, then what are we supposed to do?

Another said:

Finding out about this was a total shock to the system. I don’t want to point the finger at all police officers, but they are meant to be there to protect you. Especially with the Sarah Everard case, it is difficult to know who to trust. I don’t feel protected right now.

I was oblivious to his wrongdoing and I imagine the other victims were.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support

The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.

The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.

So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.

    1. Snap, a couple f perverts, who are aparently ghosts that move furniture around, drill holes down from the flat above, and are part of a bigger fan club than kim karcrashians. Cops on foot, cops in cars in battersea park, cops using low level shop style drones, and several other sizes n types up to the predator type military drones that usually fly at 20,000 to 40,000 foot and noted for bombing wedding parties in Pakistan or kids near Kabul airport. The spy drones that have bee flying above great britin sice 2010. Type spy drones over london. Or other place, rem Harry dunn, his killer, evaded british justice, due to our new justice minister, who lied to local police telling them she had diplomatic immunity, and they had to release her. She disappeared into raf crighton, where the american cia spies are running the spy drones frm, yes yank spies operating on british soil, spying on british citizens. The american staffed not american owned cia belongs to the rothchild central bankers, who also own te covid scam, fauci works for them at the company the N.I.H, its not a health institute, no its part of the rothchilds big pharma, who set up oragins the scamdemic, for profit, no actual virus ever existed. FACT, wuhan was part of project fear. There never was a wuhan covivirus. Covid = crt Of Vax ID. No where in the world, has any one isolate and purify the covid virus genome, no one ever. Which means the vaxes have nothing inside them thats come from the non existent virus, so the vaxes do not prevent viral infection, nor the transmission or e transmission of any virus. Boris and co, ae paid bonus per person vaccinated, per person who dies from the vile of toxic chems they used the emergency usage to avoid the proper safety testing of the vaccines, knowing the animal testing would kill the animals, and it would prob be made public. Just like the fail test data of their secret testing of the bio- weapon soz, bio-chemical weapon, which is being used on british citizens as a licensed vaccine for viral prevention. When infact its actually a mass extermination vaccination, only lately the cdc changed the terminology
      to include the covid death jab.
      Hitler did not own the death camps in poland and germany, nor the goulags in russia, nor the fema camps in america, or canada or oz, nor the citizen extermination prisons like the one at wellingborough, Northamptonshire. It has its own body disposal unit right next to it. What kind of rehabilitation prison is that. Simples ts for british citizens, the mass eradication of british citizens. See boris blog, his dads mention of ethanasia, and eugenics, his book called virus. The rothchilds own the vaxes, pfizer, moderna, astra zenica. Three of them are made with the same toxic chems, three digfverent companies, using the same chemical mix, madevup of all toxic crap to eradicate the british citizens. From 61 million down to 14.787 million. Tats why wellingborough and four others are t be built, five of them with its own bod disposal unit right next to it. Sounds like the rothchilds owned death camps in germany and poland. Does it not. The only thing missing is hitler. Cnt answer back, cant expose the real mass murderers, who killed most before the war and after the war, than died in the war. Have you figured it out lindsey hoyle, should have been scked for doing th same as his predecessr.then he keepspreventing back benchrfrom tell the house whatthe were upset about. Mrs grey the investigator of her boss boris, was involved in covering up the gov involvement in the grenfell tower social engineering which went wrong, a judgge said. Now mz grey was involved in the cover up of the grenfell enquiry, the double delete of emails to avoid the journalist from finding out what you dont want them to know. The idea that the chair of investigation into boris johnson, is yet another corupt tory, who are not trustworthy nor honourable. Its the most abused word in Westminster, look into skeleton bill white paper missing from a bill to be put in place when lords have never seen the bill they are to vote on. The boris/ schwab communist take over by the back doir is clearly visible. Why are ministers doing nothing, complicit.
