Leading article: Justice delayed must not become justice denied

Published: 18 July 2006

The decision of the Crown Prosecution Service

not to prosecute any individual police officers

for the killing of the Brazilian electrician,

Jean Charles de Menezes,

has provoked incomprehension and anger in many quarters.

 

Members of his family are understandably aggrieved.
Their relative was shot at point blank range at a London Tube station:
one minute he was peacefully going about his business;
the next he was dead: shot seven times in the head.
There is no doubt whatsoever that the police shot to kill.

Unsatisfactory though it may be, the CPS decision not to prosecute
the two officers from the special firearms unit who shot Mr Menezes is correct.
All the evidence in the public domain so far suggests
that Mr Menezes was the victim of a tragic case of mistaken identity.
The police marksmen believed they were tracking a suicide bomber. For a prosecution to succeed,
it would have to prove that the officers knew something different when they pulled the trigger.
Nothing that we have learnt suggests they acted in anything other than good faith.

Jean Charles de Menezes inquest

records open verdict

Inquest heard from 100 witnesses
including officers who shot De Menezes
on tube carriage at Stockwell on July 22 2005

An open verdict was today recorded into the death of Jean Charles de Menezes, who was gunned down by firearms officers on the London underground having been mistaken for a suicide bomber.

The coroner, Sir Michael Wright, had previously ruled out a verdict of unlawful killing, leaving the jury with a straight choice between lawful killing or an open verdict.

The inquest at the Oval cricket ground, south London, heard from 100 witnesses, including the two specialist firearms officers, C12 and C2, who shot De Menezes dead at point-blank range, on a tube carriage at Stockwell station on July 22 2005.

De Menezes was shot after being mistaken for the failed suicide bomber, Hussain Osman.

For the first time, during the inquest, the public was given a full account of the incident from key witnesses on board the train carriage where the shooting took place.

The shooting came two weeks after London was rocked by the July 7 bombings, which left 52 victims dead.

On July 21, a second gang of Islamist extremists attempted to murder dozens more with homemade rucksack bombs.

As counter-terrorist police officers searched the city for the escaped would-be suicide bombers, De Menezes was mistaken for Osman and shot dead.

The coroner had told the 11 jurors to cast aside any emotion over the innocent Brazilian's shooting after hearing more than seven weeks of evidence and protests from the Brazilian's family, outside the inquest.
