Press release from the Ian Tomlinson Family Campaign:
The family of Ian Tomlinson, who died during the G20 protests in London on 1st April, will be attending the MPA Civil Liberties Panel on Thursday 5 November 2009 from 09:30 – 12:30 in London’s Living Room, City Hall.
The family hope to have questions answered about the nature of police tactics both planned and used on the day, in particular, use of force against the public. They will also raise concerns about press communications to the public after the event.
The MPA is holding the meeting to secure "public confidence in policing tactics" as part of its review of the events surrounding the G20 demonstrations.
