Jean Charles de Menezes: still no justice two years on

Two years ago on 22nd July 2005, an innocent Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes was shot dead at Stockwell tube station as the result of a disastrous police anti-terror operation. But two years after his shooting:

  • No police officer involved in his death has faced criminal proceedings
  • The inquest into his death remains adjourned
  • The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) report into the police operation on the day of his death remains secret
  • The IPCC report into Sir Ian Blair also remains unpublished
  • The family and public still have no answers about the use of Operation Kratos and the police's shoot-to-kill policy
To mark the anniversary, the Justice4Jean campaign projected this image on the Houses of Parliament on Friday last week.
