Quote: A statement by Bedfordshire Police said that Pasqualone had carried out the offences to help another suspected drug dealer who had been a friend since childhood.
The idea had been to disrupt a rival drug supply business by making it appear that Masciopinto was an informant.
In the course of his duties Pasqualone had access to a number of computerised information systems which contained highly sensitive and confidential police reports and intelligence.
