Family remembers two years on


Written by: Harmit Athwal

A family and their supporters will gather outside High Wycombe police station this weekend to remember a loved one who died after an altercation with the police.

Saturday will mark two years since the death of Habib ‘Paps’ Ullah in High Wycombe after being arrested and restrained by up to six police officers.

Habib’s family have been resolute in keeping his memory alive and are determined to find out what happened to him in his final hours. The family campaign has held numerous events and demonstrations over the last two years to highlight Habib’s death and to draw attention to other issues surrounding policing. Furthermore the Campaign has actively linked up with other family campaigns around loved ones who have died in police and prison custody.

A date for the inquest has finally been set for December. There, hopefully, the family will finally hear some of the details as to how Habib came to die.

Join the family and friends of Habib ‘Paps’ Ullah outside High Wycombe police station on Saturday 3 July from 4-7pm.
