Mark Duggan Inquest

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

The family of a man who was shot dead by police listened tearfully as an inquest jury today ruled the killing was lawful but police handling of the siege was ‘inadequate’.

Mark Duggan’s mother has said she is “extremely disappointed” after High Court judges rejected her bid to have the “lawful killing” inquest verdict quashed - but the family has vowed to fight on.

Three High Court judges tasked with ruling on whether to quash the ‘lawful killing’ verdict of Mark Duggan’s inquest have made their decision - and will announce it next week.

A network of nearly 50 groups rooted in Tottenham are banding together to lay on a week of events, talks and exhibitions in a bid to highlight their collective power, concern and ability to shape the future of the area.

The family, friends and supporters of The Justice 4 Mark Duggan Campaign say they are set to reveal details about his death at the hands of a police marksman that were witheld from the jury at his inquest.

Long-time Haringey resident and the borough’s TUC secretary Keith Flett gives his personal assessment of the progress and stagnation in Tottenham’s post-riot recovery.

Mark Duggan’s family have urged any witnesses to his shooting at the hands of police to come to them instead of police investigators, as they marked the third anniversary of his death with a peaceful march and vigil in Tottenham.

Top judges have said it is highly unlikely they will rule on whether or not to quash the ‘lawful killing’ verdict of Mark Duggan until October.

Mark Duggan’s mother returned to the High Court today in a bid to convince judges they should overturn an inquest verdict that found he was “lawfully killed” by a police marksman.

Restrictions on access to police intelligence means undercover operations that end in death may not be properly investigated, the coroner in the Mark Duggan inquest has warned.
