Killer bribed Prison Officer so She could Lie about Murder f

"You both embarked on a brazen plan"

A killer offered a prison officer a car so she could lie about a murder.

Wiktoria Bujko reported a fake confession by suspect Aaron Campbell while he was on remand at Belmarsh for the shooting of Iron Miah.

Bujko made the bogus claim for Mohamed Moshaer Ali, who bribed her with “money, gifts and promises”.

She was given £500 and was promised a car after she handed over the fake witness statement to the police.

Bujko made the false report in October 2022, just as the murder retrial was about to begin.

She was exposed and arrested two months later.

The 30-year-old claimed she overheard a conversation in HMP Belmarsh’s healthcare unit between Campbell and another inmate, suggesting he and Antonio Afflick-McLeod planned to rob Ali of drugs on the day of the killing.

However, CCTV footage revealed Campbell was not there.

Prosecutor Crispin Aylett KC said Ali put Bujko up to creating an “entirely false account of a confession by Campbell” and showed himself to be an “outrageous liar”.

The prison officer had known Ali since he was first remanded to HMP Thameside, where she worked at the time.

She told a probation worker that prisoners were more supportive of her than her colleagues and she “felt vulnerable”.

The pair had been texting while Ali was in prison and he had promised her a car while his relatives took her out for meals and supplied her with drugs.

In a message to a friend, Bujko said:

“I got several things gifted from him, I’m not gonna lie. He’ll be out for Christmas.”

Bujko and Ali admitted perverting the course of justice.

Judge Nigel Lickley told them: “You both embarked on a brazen plan to disrupt the second trial in this matter by producing a false prison report implicating Antonio Afflick-McLeod in murder and exonerating you, Mohamed Ali.

“Thankfully as a result of requests made by the defence team to investigate it became clear the two of you concocted a plan to disrupt that trial and bring about a positive result for Mohamed Ali.

“As a result that trial had to be abandoned resulting in great public expense and the trial delayed by a further year.

“You Wiktoria were prepared to come into court and lie on oath.

“You knew each other as prisoner and prison officer at HMP Belmarsh and had both been at HMP Thameside before.

“You had been in a corrupt and dishonest relationship, money had been sent, gifts given and a car promised to Wiktoria Bujko.

“Friends and relatives had taken Wiktoria out for meals and supplied her with drugs.”

Bujko’s barrister Abigail Bright said:

“She is sorry. She genuinely really and truly is sorry.

“She has felt this absolute and demolishing fall from grace as especially hard to bear.

“As a former prison officer, now utterly disgraced, her fall could not have been any harder.”

Bujko was jailed for four years and eight months. She is likely to be deported to Poland upon release.

Ali, Campbell, and Afflick-McLeod brutally executed Iron Miah on November 19, 2019.

Mr Miah was found dying in the street outside his home in Whitechapel just months after he was released from prison.

He was taken to hospital after the hit but he had suffered an unrecoverable brain injury and he was removed from life support two days later.

Ali was jailed for life with a minimum term of 36 years.

Afflick-McLeod will serve a minimum of 34 years in prison.

Campbell will serve a minimum of 31 years.
