Former police officer and rapist Adam Provan’s pension is something that Sadiq Khan wants to stop.

Former police officer Adam Provan has been sentenced to 16 years in prison for committing a series of rapes spanning eight years. The victims of his attacks included a female police officer and a 16-year-old girl. Typically, ex-officers’ pensions can only be withheld if the criminal behavior is directly linked to their police service. Provan, aged 44, was found guilty of eight counts of rape against the two victims after a trial at Wood Green Crown Court. His predatory actions, which date back to the 1990s, were only exposed when one victim, Lauren Taylor, reported having been raped by him. The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (Mopac) is pursuing the forfeiture of Provan’s pension following his conviction. While London Mayor Sadiq Khan can’t strip him of his entire pension, the forfeiture process could lead to the removal of a portion of it, with at least 35% remaining, which Provan contributed himself. Mopac will need permission from the Home Secretary for pension forfeiture, and this is usually granted when a conviction is linked to an officer’s police service and is deemed to damage public confidence or threaten the interests of the state.
