English term or phrase: vetting and collusion of statements
Hello everyone,

INDECOM has used various strategies to further its work, including by citing rules and legislation to press Parliament and Government Ministers to coax action by security forces. INDECOM has also made direct recommendations to the police and other security forces on certain policies (with a focus on ending the ***vetting and collusion of statements***, identity concealment during operations, and observing procedure following the use of force). The responses from the police and army have suggested they are frustrated with INDECOM’s work. INDECOM, however, continues as a follow up to this strategy by publicizing the responses and countering with public polling that finds support for INDECOM positions and generates pressure. INDECOM’s investigations also focused on analyzing patterns of abuse provide policy guidance and recommendations for future prevention

Thank you.

Explanation:
This is not in very good English, but I think it means that the security forces and the police check through witness statements and make untrue amendments, deletions and additions, in collusion (cooperation) with each other to make sure the evidence from one source matches that from the other.

neutral  Tony M: I think the EN is OK, Jack; I think this is about superiors going through police officers' (etc.) statements to check they aren't saying anything 'inconvenient', and also officers colluding in writing statements so they all tell the same story.

  -> I wasn't referring particularly to this term, but to the passage in general, e.g. such expressions as "to coax action".

agree  Charles Davis: I agree with Tony that this is to do with statements by officers, but I agree with you that "collusion of statements" is not good English, since "collude" is not a transitive verb. It presumably means making statements in collusion.
