Eaton Green

Eaton Green was a Yardie gang member involved in armed robbery, drug dealing and extortion in South London. The first Yardie to become a police informant for the Metropolitan Police, his later testimony during his 1997 deportation hearing would reveal police protection for his criminal activities by immigration and intelligence officers of the Drug Related Violence and Intelligence Unit which included false passports to allow accomplices Cecil and Rohan Thomas into the country as well as securing residents rights for his marriage to a British woman under questionable circumstances [] .

Fleeing Jamaica on murder charges, he emigrated to the United Kingdom and eventually settled in Brixton in February 1991. Within three months, he had been arrested on drugs and weapons charges and recruited by Steve Barker to become an informant soon after his arrest.

His arrest on July 8, 1993 for the armed robbery of 150 people during a blues party in Nottingham (one of the largest committed in British history), would cause a scandal for the Home Office as Green had been a paid informant at the time of his arrest. His "handler", immigration officer Steve Barker, allegedly attempted to protect Green from prosecution by Nottingham authorities.

After serving six years in prison, efforts to avoid deportation by his charge that he had been told by Metropolitan intelligence officers that he would be under the protection of the DRVIU failed and was eventually deported following his deportation trial on July 10, 1997.
