Former Derbyshire police chief Kul Mahay returns to the interrogation room with TV presenter Robert ‘Judge’ Rinder

A FORMER police chief from Derby who has worked on high-profile cases in the UK is to return to the interrogation room – on a brand-new TV programme featuring Robert ‘Judge’ Rinder.

Kul Mahay, who spent more than 30 years working for Derbyshire Constabulary before setting up a business specialising in leadership and emotional intelligence, joins the Good Morning Britain host for a ten-part series called Rob Rinder’s Interrogation Secrets.

Available to stream on Apple TV and Prime, the programme takes a unique look at the battles in the interview room between police and suspects in some of the most disturbing UK and UK criminal cases in recent years.

Experts including Kul, ex Essex Police detective Paul Maleary and Nottingham’s Darren Stanton – known as ‘the human lie detector’ - will analyse the police interviews, examine the original police footage of interrogations at the heart of each case and share their thoughts.

Kul said: “It was absolutely fascinating seeing first-hand how police overseas interview their suspects, analysing what was key to cracking the cases and securing the conviction.

“The programme provides an insight into the minds of those being questioned and also the interrogators as each seeks to gain the upper hand on the other.

“My role was to analyse the interview process using my experience as a police officer. I was also able to use my current work in emotional intelligence to ‘read’ how the both the police officers and suspects adjusted their language, body movements and emotions throughout the interview process.

“I found it fascinating to watch the different styles and approaches to investigating serious crimes.”

The first five episodes examine the notorious case of US child killer Melissa Huckaby, the murder of Savannah Gold, strangled by her former lover Lee Rodarte Junior and the volatile relationship between soon-to-be-weds Marvin Williams and Cassandra Valentin that ended in tragedy.

Kul says he enjoyed being back in the interrogation room – but much prefers his current job as an emotional intelligence expert, which has seen him work with many universities, healthcare, public sector, policing and private sector organisations to transform cultures and leadership development.

“Working for the police for more than 30 years was an absolute honour and privilege,” said Kul, who has recently become a Fellow of the Institute of Leadership and Management and the Society of Leadership Fellows.

“However, I’m at an exciting point in my new career and there are lots of plans to grow my business further. This includes plans to launch our fully accredited communications programme for leaders, called Create and Speak and our programmes to help organisations develop a new culture in the new generation of work. On top of this, I'm excited about our brand-new Youth Leadership programme designed to accredit young people as future leaders going forward.”

Rob Rinder’s Interrogation Secrets is available to stream now on the Crime+Investigation Play on Amazon Prime Video channels and Apple TV across the UK, Italy, Germany and the Netherlands. It will soon be available direct-to-consumers in the UK, too.
